Saltire Mystery CAL



Since I did Mystery Knit Along, I think it's only fair that I also do Mystery Crochet Along. It's called
Saltire Mystery CAL.

A saltire is a heraldic symbol in the form of a diagonal cross ☓ or letter x. I name this shaw Saltire because you can find a lot of x-stitches all over the shawl.
Saltire is a half circle-ish shaped shawl with interesting construction. You can make this shawl with 1 color or 2 colors. Both give you stunning result.
Instruction come in 2 sizes, small and large, but you can adjust the size. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with both written instructions and charts.

Suggested yarn and yardage needed: Any sock yarn (920 - 1,600 yards)
You need at least 2 skeins of yarn to do a small size shawl (if you are not a tight crocheter like me most likely that you need 3 skeins) and 4 skeins to make the large one.
For 2 colors shawl the ratio is 50:50.
Note:
I used Rendezvous Forever Sock 2 skeins (200g, 920 yards) for small size.

Hook: 4.50 mm (G) and 5.00 (H) (adjust hook size accordingly if you use thinner/thicker yarn)

Notions: Removable stitch markers for crochet

Level: Advanced

Blooming Fuchsia Shawl Knitting Pattern for Sale



Blooming Fuchsia is a triangularish-shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. I named this shawl Blooming Fuchsia because the color of the yarn I used to knit this shawl is inspired by the color of blooming Fuchsia.
Pattern includes charts and written directions, and instructions to calculate the stitch count totals for every row. I also include the number of stitches to cast on and the yardage if you decide to work a different number of repeats.



Technical Editor: Chaitanya Muralidhara

Suggested yarn:
I used Rendezvous Yarn 100% Merino Superwash (Blooming Fuchia color) 1 skein (100g, 490 yards) for 10 repeats (30% before the end, I changed the needle to smaller size because I was afraid running out of yarn. I am glad I did because I only had a few yards left over in the end), so I suggest doing 9 repeats if you are using this yarn.

Yarn Requirement:







Finished Size (10 repeats): 53" wide by 27.5" deep
Needle: 3.5 mm (US 4) and 4.5 mm (US 7) circular needle, 32" or longer.
Notions: stitch markers (optional), size 8 seed beads (optional)
Level: Advanced
