My current wip project is, as i said in my earlier blog post a fast and easy summer project. The goal is that you can easily take it with you wherever you want. One Scheepjes whirl (and maybe one Scheepjes Whirlette, depending on which size you want to crochet) is easy to take with you, everywhere you go.
The project that do not have a name yet, is based on the common c2c technique. Most of you might be used to it. I still thought that I even want to give those of us who are beginners the possibility to crochet the triangle. That is why I decided to make a quick little tutorial which you can find below.
The c2c technique has the advantage that you create neat edges as you go. So you do not need to think about a border if you do not want to.
This pattern was not planed at all. I just wanted to make a very easy c2c shawl in one of the gorgeous colors of the Scheepjes Whirls. But when crocheting along I had the idea to add a little twist into the c2c. I simply changes some of the c2c squares to popcorn stitches and chains which makes the triangle more lightweight.
It is the gorgeous colorways of the Scheepjes Whirls make the easy crocheted summer shawl special. It is totally possible to use a Scheepjes Woolly Whirl or Frosted Whirl too.
The smaller version which uses only one cake of Whirl without adding a Whirlette will be 140 cm blocked on the long side. With an additional Whirl the long side is extended with 30 cm.
Get your Scheepjes Whirl at your local local SCHEEPJES dealer here:
Scheepjes Dealers or order it at Wool Warehouse
For now i am leaving you with the tutorial and I am trying to finish my triangel(s). Yes, plural. The pattern will come in 2 different sizes and will be highly adaptable to your needs.
Stay tuned. More to come soon from up north…
Little school of the corner to corner (aka c2c) technique:
The tutorial is written in US terms:
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
ch3-sp – chain 3 space
ss – slip stitch
st – stitch.
Practice the techique so att your stitches are neat. I promise you will have a lot of fun with it.
So how do you start the transition with the popcorn stitch? Do you also have a tutorial with photos of this?
Thanks in advance
