A Belated Christmas gift – The Lisa Shawl

lisa pdf downloadThe Lisa Shawl is a free crochet pattern by yours truly – a fun, quick crochet project with beads to spice it up. The shawl is named after my gorgeous and colourful friend Lisa who was the first person to love this design :)

The shawl is worked up using 2 skeins of sock weight yarn. My shawl was done in TFA Blue label Grape, and Lisa’s in Ella Rae Lace Merino, in the whimsically named colourway #117.

The beads are easy to add, visible from both sides and add a lovely weight to the finished piece.

You will need a 3.75mm hook for the main body, a 1.0mm hook for the beads, and about 50 grams of size 6.0 seed beads.

    I’m very excited to finally be making this shawl but I think I’m having problems with it. This is a stupid question, I’m sure, but isn’t the edge of the shawl (the side that would lay across your shoulders) supposed to be straight across?? Mine is coming out curved and for the life of me I can’t figure out why…..unless its supposed to be like that. I would love to send you a photo of what I’ve done so far so you can give me a thumbs up or a thumbs down. In the photo above, of the blue shawl shown from the back, it looks like you’ve got about 8 rows or so of the granny stitch…..my instructions don’t start like that. Please help me!! I really must have this shawl. I’m planning on wearing it to an upcoming wedding in the Napa Valley, CA which we’re traveling to from the east coast. Please, please!!!

    Thanks so much in advance!

      Hi Sue
      sounds tricky ;) Since it’s time sensitive, it might be best if we chat – please email me your phone number at hello@thebluebrick.ca and I’ll see if I can talk you through the problem!

    I have some of “Vanna’s Choice yarn that is a medium yarn. I want to make this shawl with it. But the yarn is to big to get the beads on it. Have you ever made it without the beads?

      You can make it in any yarn you like, and it will work out fine, beads or no beads :) good luck!

    Hi Shireen, I just found your lovely pattern and have the perfect yarn on hand. Before I begin, is the Ch3 turning chain counted as a DC throughout the pattern? Thanks so much, Karin

    This shawl is beautiful and my daughter-in-law asked me to make it for her.
    Is there a pattern that shows how many stitches are in each row? Instructions that show stitches keep me on track by letting me know I’m crocheting the proper amount of stitches.
    Thanks so much!
