Seraphina Shawl

Seraphina Shawl, originally uploaded by fmirela.


Yarn: Lion Brand Fisherman’s Wool – 2 skeins

Hook: 3.5 mm (need to double check)

I fell in love with this pattern. It is very well described here and has a chart:…

This is my second shawl based on the pattern and it turned out to be a simpler pattern than I first thought. The important thing to remember is to do the increases only at the beginning and end of each row and on both sides of the point.

I will try the increases technique next time in a more precious yarn with a different stitch to see if I can reproduce the shape.

This keeps me warm in the office even if we are in Florida, the wool is breathable so it is perfect over a thin long sleeved blouse.

I would pair it with jeans for a poncho like casual wear or over a little black dress for a chillier evening.

    Hi, I am not sure if it’s just me but it seems that the chart is not available on the forum?

    I’m 85 and am on the 12th row of the Seraphina shawl. Not sure how to work the next few rows. Need help. thanks Berta

    @emy: the chart is here:

    @berta: from this point on you only increase with V Stitches at the beginning and end of each row, and before and after the point in the center.
    You will notice new shell motifs forming, just like the ones you’ve already made so far, look at row 8 only at the first shell motif to see how to create the new shells (one at the beginning and end of your rows, two on the sides of the center point.). The shells that already have 3 double crochet, chain, 3 double crochet will continue like that with no increases. I hope this makes sense…
