Gathering Leaves Shawl Using Only 1 Skein of Sock Yarn

A few months back, somebody emailed me to ask whether it is possible to make a small version of Gathering Leaves shawl. I told her that she can skip rows 10 - 39 to make it smaller but I was not sure how it would look like. At that time, I wanted to try myself to see whether the shawl still look nice skipping so many rows, however, I didn't have time to do it.

Last month, after I have done writing pattern for Saltire, I have some free time before starting another design. So, I decided to grab some yarn and make a smaller version of Gathering Leaves. To make it more challenging, I want to make this pattern using only 1 skein of sock yarn.

Fiori was having chicken pox and had to be quarantine in the room. She wanted me to accompany her all the time and didn't let me get out of the room. She let me crochet but she made sure that I didn't leave the room. So, I got plenty of crochet time and managed to finished the shawl in 2 days.

So without further ado, here is the result:




I managed to used up only 1 skein of Rendezvous Forever Sock in Sour colorway, but I had to crochet it very very very tight using 3.5 mm hook.

Pattern: Gathering Leaves

Materials: Rendezvous Forever Sock Yarn 75% Merino Superwash/25% Nylon (Sour color)
Qty: 1 x 100 gram (460 yards)
