The Making of the Spill Crochet Shawl

Curious about the specifics on how the Spill crochet shawl is constructed and stitch counts configured? Here I share the details of my design process.

The Spill crochet shawl is a crescent shape with a pattern worked in rows. It uses simple stitches: single crochet, double crochet, slip stitch. The pattern incorporates short rows on one side of the shawl so that the color shifts of the yarn (or stripes, if using multiple yarns) are off-center.

How to Block Lace Crochet

Blocking lace crochet is a wonderful way to finish your work and enhance your project's stitch design. Here's the simple 3-step process that I use.

When you block a lace crochet item, your project has a more finished look and the stitch design is enhanced. Blocking knit and crochet items opens up the stitches to give the pattern more definition. You can use blocking to define points for a more distinct shape. It also helps the finished item conform to the expected dimensions. It can help that sweater fit better or that shawl drape nicely. I have a pretty simple process when it comes to blocking lace crochet projects, or any project for that matter. There are many ways that knitters and crocheters “block” their finished items. … read more
