From the talented Joanne Scrace from The Crochet Project, this shawl pattern features stripes and a central line, like the ripples created behind a boat as it travels through the sea – hence it’s name. It is an unusual rhombus-shaped shawl worked in a biased fabric which is simple to make and elegant in wear.
Mix up the colours and play with the stripes for a different look.
Wingspan (a): 203cm/80in
100g skein 4-ply – Col A (approx 390m)
100g skein 4-ply – Col B (approx 390m)
20 sts and 14 rows in rows in half treble crochet only to 10 cm/4 in using 3.5 mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, raised (post) stitches, decreasing, increasing.
The shawl starts at the point at one end with increases on each edge and decreases around the central line of raised trebles to create the biased fabric. At the central point the increase and decrease pattern alters to keep the stitch count even but continue to create a biased fabric.
This pattern uses standard UK crochet terminology (with US translations provided in the abbreviations)
