Peacock Ribbon Shawl Pattern
The ribbon shawl is one of the most versatile accessories ever. It can be worn as a scarf and won’t be too bulky around the neck, it can be worn as a shawl or it can be tied around the hip for summer beach wear. No matter how you choose to wear this piece it adds flair and a touch of whimsy and fantasy to your wardrobe! Enjoy!
Materials: Size 6.5 or K hook, 2 -50 g balls of Ice “Ladder” Yarn or equivalent.
With 1 strand of ladder ribbon yarn ch 8 with size 6.5 (K) crochet hook. Sl st in first ch.
Row 1: 8 ch, 1 dc in ch ring, 4 ch, 1 dc in same ch ring
Row 2: 8 ch, 1 dc in ch loop below, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in same loop, turn
Row 3: 8 ch, 1 dc in ch loop below, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch loop, 4 ch, 1 dc in same ch loop.
Continue increasing at beginning of each row until desired depth and width of shawl is achieved. (Forty dc loops on top row).
Tassels: With ribbon remaining on 2nd ball of ladder yarn cut 6” lengths of ribbon (I used a one foot knitting noddy) fold ribbon in half and put looped end from the back to the front side of shawl through edge chain loops. Pull loose ends up and through the loop and pull down. 1-3 strands depending on how heavy you want your fringe to be. If you want a lot of fringe a 3rd ball of ladder yarn will be necessary. 2 balls will do the shawl with 3 strand of fringe on each side loop.
