About this crochet crescent shawl pattern
Autumn is upon us and the honey harvesting is just about to begin.
Inspired by sweet slices of honeycomb dripping with honey, this symmetrical rounded triangle shawl pattern features textured bands alternating plain bands of stitches.
The texture is created using front post and back post stitches and looks like slices of honeycomb that embrace you.
The shawl grows symmetrically from the center point of the top edge, with increases at the ends and middle of each row.
You can make the shawl longer by adding more pattern repeats or shorter by skipping a few, like the testers did with their projects.
The pattern includes full written instructions, charts, US and UK terms, as well as an easy read version.
The sample shawl measures 170 cm or 67” across the top and 55 cm or 21.5” in depth.
It can be made larger by adding more pattern repeats of 12 rows.
Testers have made their shawls between 160 and 270 cm or between 63″ and 106″ along the top edge (a), with a depth between 54 and 100 cm or between 21″ and 40″ in width (b).
Intermediate – you will work with front post, back post stitches, clusters increases, tall stitches. These are all demonstrated in the videos that show you how to make the gauge swatch.
The Dipped in honey shawl pattern includes full written instructions, a schematic, crochet charts for the swatch and for the shawl itself, access to videos showing how to make the swatch.
All of this available in both US and UK terms and an easy read version is included for both (which can also be used as a mobile version of the pattern).

- 24 point Arial font; 26 and 28 point and bold for headings;

- left justified, 1 inch margins;
- no columns;
