PATTERN RELEASE: Foxtrot Shawl

by Lena Fedotova (ravliki on Ravelry)


I have just released Foxtrot shawl, a new addition to my Shine On collection of the diamond stitch pattern designs. In these designs, you will alternate two colors at a time, but use only one color in each round/row.

Foxtrot shawl design is the most difficult one because it is worked in rows (the rest of my "diamond" designs are worked in the round with the right side always facing). You need to pay attention to where your stitches are since all dc stitches should be left on the right side (and create the diamond pattern) and all chains should be left on the wrong side.

FREE PATTERN: Tunisian Entrelac Motif #1

Motifs: #1 Fire | #2 Well | #3 Daisy | #4 Lily | #5 Flower | #6 Matilda

In summer 2016 I took part in the first KnitPro design-along, dedicated to Knit For Peace charity program. You can purchase an e-book which includes twelve knit and crochet motifs (plus ideas for blanket layouts using the squares and instructions for different borders) for £6.00 here.


I submitted eight Tunisian entrelac patterns and one of these motifs has been released (you can find it in the e-book). I am going to share the rest of the patterns for free in the Cup of Stitches blog. I gave them some simple names and sorted them depending on the difficulty level. The simplest ones use one color per round/row. The other ones use a couple of colors per round/row and I provide the detailed instructions for changing colors in a special manner (to avoid extra "cut&fasten off").

The patterns assume basic familiarity with Tunisian crochet, specifically how each row is worked as two separate passes and how to work Tunisian simple stitch. Each element of the motifs is small enough to place all of your stitches on a regular crochet hook.

Here is the first motif:
