Diamondiferous Delight Shawl – Free Crochet Pattern

This post contains the free crochet pattern for my Diamondiferous Delight Shawl, which is made from a Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art and matching Merino Soft colors. The shawl works up fast, and is surprisingly warm with a wonderful drape.

Resources

Materials

Merino Soft and Whirl Fine Art are available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Black Sheep Wools (UK), Caro’s Atelier (NL/BE), Creahuys41 (NL), and many Scheepjes Stockists world wide.

I have Diamondiferous Delight yarn kits available in my SHOP. The kits include all the yarn and the printed pattern. You can find the kits HERE.

The Scheepjes Merino Soft contains 50% Superwash Merino / 25% Micro / 25% Acryl, and on every 50g ball there is 105m of yarn. The Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art has the same fiber contents, and each 220g cake has 460m of yarn.


Tips for choosing a different color combination

The base of the shawl is the Scheepjes Whirl Fine Art. Choose Colors A and C according to the matching colors in the diagram. Color A matches the outside color and Color C matches the inside color of the Whirl. For Whirls that do not have two matching colors, use 10 x Yarn A or 10 x Yarn C, and omit the other color.


Abbreviations

This pattern uses US crochet terminology. If you are more familiar with UK crochet terms, you can find a conversion chart HERE.

ch chain
ch-sp(s) chain space(s)
dc double crochet
st(s) stitch(es)

Size

When finished, the shawl measures 50cm / 20inches wide and 230cm / 94inches long.

Notes

  • Turning ch2 at the beginning of a row do not counts as a stitch.
  • The chart is easy to use, and can replace the written pattern.
  • There is no right or wrong side on this shawl.
  • Turn at the end of every row. Start with Color A, and continue to attach a new ball of Color A till the yarn is finished. When Color A runs out, attach the corresponding color of the Whirl Fine Art and continue with the pattern. Finally, when the Whirl Fine Art runs out, attach Color C and continue in pattern attaching a new ball of Color C till you reach the end of the pattern.
