Hey there Piper.

As a designer, I spend a lot of time researching stitches, garments, fashion trends, colors, etc. With this design, I didn’t have to do any of that! In a sense, this piece chose me!

On Mondays, I meet with a wonderful group of girls for a Crochet/Knit date. When my friend Torey came in a few weeks ago, I could not stop staring at the beautifully draped shawl around her neck! I immediately asked about it. I HAD to see it up close. She, being a fiber lover like myself, even let me squish it in my hands.

I needed it!

..and of course, her’s was knit.

Story of my life!

I searched the internet far and wide for something/anything similar in the crochet world and when I came up short, I went on a mission to design one. I wanted every crochet artist in the world to have this amazingness around their neck or on their shoulders.

The yarn was a no-brainer for me! Dreamers plied yarn is an amazing fingering weight yarn. It’s my go-to for lightweight designs. So with that, I put hook-to-yarn..

Alas, The Piper ParaShawl was born!

And just look at that drape!

Can you do this in heavier yarns? Sure! Go for it! In fact, I had a couple testers play around with some Lion Brand Mandala and they came out beautifully; but I have to say, there is something about the weight and the squish that is so phenomenal in a Fingering weight. So, don’t fear the light weight yarns. This is a simple/mindless/binge-worthy repeat and it is so worth it!!

This is the first in a series of ParaShawls!! I am obsessed. I hope you guys love it too!

 

Let me know your thoughts!!!

Until next time,

Kayla N.

  6. Video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vCsCr4lYF8&feature=youtu.be

Pattern:
Band: Using G hook and CA:

  • To Start: Make a Ch of 8 (8,9,9)
  • Row 1: SC in the 2nd Ch from the hook and across . 7(7,8,8)
  • Row 2: Ch 1, turn. SC in the BLO of each stitch until there is 1 stitch left, SC in the last stitch.  7(7,8,8)
  • Rows 3-64 (64, 72, 80): Repeat Row 2. The band should measure 16 (16, 18, 20) inches unstretched.
    • If the band doesn’t match the measurements, add or remove rows. When you move to the Hat Body and SC around, make sure that Round 1 ends up having 64 (64, 72, 80) SCs
    • Fold the band in half so that the working end is lined up with the chain end. SLST the 2 ends together. Turn the band inside-out so that the seam is on the inside of the hat. Begin working along the side of the band.
    • Continue to Hat Body, Locate the size that you are working on.

Hat Body: Switch to H hook and remember to be mindful of the gauge.

Mesh Portion for all sizes

  • M Round 1: HDC in the 3rd loop of each stitch around. SLST to join.
  • M Round 2: Ch4 (counts as DC and Ch1). *Sk next stitch, DC in the next stitch, Ch1*. Repeat ** around. SLST to the 3rd ch. SLST into the Ch1 space.
  • M Round 3: Ch4 (counts as DC and Ch1). *DC in the next Ch1 space. Ch1.* Repeat ** around. SLST to join. SLST into the Ch1 space.
  • Repeat M Round 3 until the Mesh portion of the bag measures approximately:
    • Small: 6 inches
    • Medium: 8.5 inches
    • Sack: 11 inches
      • After the last repeat of M Round 3, Do not SLST into the Ch1 space.
      • Ch1 and move on to M Round 4:  
  • M Round 4: 2HDC in each Ch1 space around. SLST to join.
  • M Round 5: Ch2 (counts as SC and Ch1.) Sk1 stitch. *SC in the next stitch. Ch1 and Sk1 stitch.* Repeat ** around. SLST to join and Ch1.
    • M Round 5 is  the round that the drawstring will be weaved through.
  • M Round 6: 2SC in each Ch1 space around. SLST to join
  • Finish off.
  • Weave in ends.

Drawstring

  • Make a Ch long enough to fit around the top plus 3 inches. For me this took:
    • Small: Ch 61
    • Med: Ch81
    • Sack: Ch101
    • Due to tension differences, you may need to add more Chs.
  • Weave Drawstring in and out of the Ch1 spaces of M Round 5.
  • Put the 2 ends through a bead and tie a knot at the end.
