Furls September CAL Part Two

Posted on September 26, 2016 by Lorene Eppolite | 5 Comments

Welcome to Part Two of the Furls September CAL.  This month we are making the Unfurled Beauty Shawl, an asymmetrical triangle shawl with a lovely lacy edging.  You can follow our striping pattern, or let your imagine run wild.  We can't wait to see all the different ideas you have come up with. 

Are you having fun?  I know I am.  

It's been a blast getting to know everyone and see all of your lovely work.  At this point you should have completed Row 1 through Row 75 of the Unfurled Beauty Shawl pattern.  If you you are just starting with us, please start at Part One, HERE.  

Unfurled Beauty 
Finished Part One- up to Row 75

Things have been going great with this CAL.  There have been a few bumps here or there and some questions, so before we go any further, let's discuss a couple of things.

SIZING ADJUSTMENTS

If you are a little "fluffy" as one of our members, so hilariously, put it, than you can add some length to your shawl.  Please keep in mind that for every row you add to length you are also adding to the height of the shawl.  

Also keep in mind that we will be adding rows on Part Two as well.  You will want to add your first set of repeats after Row 75.  Be sure to add in multiples of two.  You will need to add half as many rows to the other side, which we will discuss in this post .  I would recommend not adding more than 8 rows total on Part One.  

Adding rows will affect your edging, but we will work through it together, it will be an easy adjustment.  

CHECKING FOR ACCURACY

Before we move on to part two, I would like everyone to count their stitches on Row 75.l  You should have 76 sts in your plain dc portion (so this stitch count excludes the skip 2, 5dc cluster and ch-5).  

If your stitch count is incorrect than it can be one of three things.  

1) Not counting the ch3 as the first dc, thereby placing the last st of the row in the last dc, instead of the ch3
Be sure to place your last 2dc if each row in the ch3 from the row below
2) Not counting the first st after the ch-5 as the first st.
The ch-5 at the beginning of the odd rows is NOT a st, therefore the first dc is the same st as the ch-5. So you will skip that st and the next st.
3) Not placing the first dc after your skip 2 in the right place.
Count the loops at the top of the st if you are having a hard time determining what is the correct st to dc in, there should only be two empty loops, the first dc will go in the third loop.
Remember, add one to the row number you are on for the st count of that row (the ch-5, 5dc cluster and skipped sts not included).

 

If you are missing just one or two stitches than it could just be from skipping a stitch here or there.  If that is the case, than I would recommend frogging just a couple rows back and adding 1st to each row as needed to get to the correct stitch count for Row 75.  

I would also prefer if you do not weave in your ends until the very end of the pattern.

ARE YOU ALL SET TO MOVE ON?

Row 87:  This is your row to set up for your edging.  Using main color, change to your 5.0mm H/Strawberry Furls Candy Shop hook.  Ch 7 and turn, skip 2-dc, 3dc next dc (mark the ch-7 space), skip 3-dc, *[2dc, ch 5, 2dc] in next st (this will be referred to as a shell throughout rest of pattern), skip 3-dc, repeat from * to end.  3dc in last dc.  

Edging Row 1 (WS):  This is your first complete edging row.  Change to your accent color, using  same 5.0mm H/Strawberry Furls Candy Shop hookCh 3 and turn, 2dc in the same st, skip next 2-dc, ex-dc in the space before the next shell (figure 1 below shows what I mean by 'in the space before the next shell'), skip next 2-dc, *[2dc, ch 4, 2dc] in ch-5 of next shell, skip next 2-dc, ex-dc in space between this shell and next shell, repeat from * to marked ch-7 space, skip next 2-dc, [4dc, ch 4, 4dc] in marked space (mark the ch-4), skip next 2-dc, ex-dc in the st that corresponds with the 5-dc from Part One (figure 2 below), *[2dc, ch 4, 2dc] in ch-5 of next shell, ex-dc in the st that corresponds with the 5-dc from Part One, repeat from * to the last 5-dc space, this will bring you to where you started the shawl in Part One, 3dc in the bottom of the original ch 4.

NOTE on Edging Row 2:  Your edge may have a slight ruffle.  This ruffle will settle flat, once you block your shawl and the body of the shawl opens up.  However if you are getting a large ruffle, you are using an acrylic, or you are using a larger hook than what the pattern calls for, you can change the 2dc in the ex-dc to just 1dc in the ex-dc, you can even choose to make this a fpdc if you like.  This should reduce the ruffling.  If this is not enough of an adjustment, you can change the [3dc, ch 2, 3dc] to a [2dc, ch 2, 2dc] or alternate between them both.  

Edging Row 2 (RS):  This is your very last row... congrats, you are almost done. Continue with accent color and your 5.0mm H/Strawberry Furls Candy Shop hookCh 3 and turn, 2dc in same st, skip next 2-dc, 2dc in the next ex-dc, skip next 2-dc, *[3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in the ch-4 of next shell (figure 3), skip 2-dc, 2dc in the next ex-dc, repeat from * to the last ex-dc before the marked shell, skip first dc of shell, dc in each of the next 3-dc of the shell, [3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in ch-4 of shell, dc in each of the next 3-dc of shell, skip last dc of shell, 2dc in next ex-dc (figure 4), skip 2-dc, **[3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in the ch-4 of next shell, skip 2-dc, 2dc in the next ex-dc, skip 2-dc, repeat from ** to last dc, 3dc in last dc.

FINISHING

Block your shawl to finished measurements, or as needed.  I prefer the wet blocking method for this pattern, but you can use whatever blocking methods you prefer, or that will work with your yarn.  If you are not sure how to block, or what method to use, we can discuss this in the facebook group, Fun with Furls.

This was a really good CAL. The times alloted for each section was generous, the pattern was easy enough for those with lower level skills, but beautiful enough to attract all levels of experience. A really well designed, people friendly CAL! Thank you!
