Spider Stitch Triangle for a Shawl, free pattern



For those of you who like making triangular shawls here is a fancy spider stitch.

However, I must warn you that it’s not a beginner level pattern! 

Even though the stitch itself involves only double crochets, single crochets, and chains, there are lots and lots of “skipping”, which makes the pattern complicated. In addition, there are repeating instructions within repeating instructions, which might be confusing if you’ve never worked with such patterns before. 

To make the sample shown in the picture, I used leftover cotton yarn from my stash. But I think it will look much better in acrylic or wool yarn.  

Of course, your shawl will need some edging. You might want to check out the simple edging I used for this spider-stitch shawl.

  5. I just used this stitch for a shawl, too! I found the pattern at www.crochet-plaisir.com, but it's a little different inbetween the spiders (didn't know the pattern is called spider stitch by the way). Nice to see yours! My post is scheduled for next week.

    Have a nice weekend!

  12. I've done the spider stitch before on a swatch square and I really liked it. Your shawl pattern is really cool. I'm going to try it right now...but one question. How can I make it bigger? What row or rows do I repeat? I've read and now understand to repeat rows 10-17 to finish your listed/written pattern...but what if I choose to make it bigger? Thanks, Cathy
