... is now being hosted at the ville with permission from AmyS and Doni - the amazing designer who thought it up in the first place!

Serafina Shawl

(The above is made with Joann's Sensation's Boucle)

Those of you that know me know that I LOVE this shawl,

love it so much that I've lost count of how many I've made.

The most
WONDERFUL things about this pattern are that
it can be made in any size with any combination of colors or yarns.

HUGE Serafina's

Tween to Adult Size

and even Itty Bitty

I make mine a little bit different from Doni's but I worked very closely with her pattern to create mine. My pattern for the Serafina is a little bit different and a little bit tweaked and written completely in my own words. It also lays flat using the appropriate hook for the size of the yarn. The full PDF can be downloaded below.

... but first - links to the original patterns:

There have been made many, many beautiful shawls from the original pattern.

What's truly amazing is that you can change the look of it by adding stripes which come out looking VERY cool!, using varigated or shaded yarn. It's such a versatile and beautiful pattern that I'm honored to be able to share my version of it with you.

Helpful Notes



RRs Version of Serafina
Notes


NOTES -

- When there are 7dc's next to each other - you will break it up into (4dc, Vst, 4dc ) in the next row.

- This pattern is the same, forwards and backwards, on both sides of the center shell (not including the
edges)

- What I cal the shell column in the line of shells that go across the shawl vertically.

- You will increase in 4 places in each and every row. As part of the BR and ER - the dc in the ch1sp AND
on each side of the Center Shell - the dc in the ch1sp.

- the ONLY place you put a dc in a ch sp is next to the edge or next to the center shell.

- following the shell column row counts is not exactly mandatory. It just makes it look neater in the finished
product.


Misc

- The BR & ER is just because I'm lazy and don't feel like typing it out for every line. It's very important
that you keep the 3dc groups neat because these create the edges of the shawl.
- Row 4 begins the 1st shell increase.

all shell columns will be made with hdc. - you'll see
{hdc, ch1, hdc) begins the shell column.,

R1 - in R1 you begin your edges (3dc, ch1) on either side of the 1st center shell

R2 - the center ch2 space may seem crowded but it is necessary. There are now 5dc's in a row. The next
row will have 7 and then we will begin our first shell increase.

R3 - you're now set up for the shell increase in the next row. has 7 instead of 8 dc's in a row because at this
point we are increasing on each side of the dc block. In the future, all dc blocks willl contain 8dcs.

R4 - because we are working right next to the center shell, you'll divide the 7dc's next to each other. In all
of the following increases, you will only be increasing on 1 side of the dc group. The beginning of the shell
column will be a hdcVst with 4dc's on either side.

R5 - the 2nd row of the shell column will separate it from the row with a ch on each side. ch, hdcVst, ch

R6- the hdc, ch2, hdc now has enough room to hold a 2dcshell in the next row.

R7 - There is a 7dc block and your first 2hdc, ch1,(2hdc, ch1, 2hdc) in Vst s, 2hdc

R8 - has 8dcs in a row, you will split this in half in the next round. it also has the last 2hdcshell, making it
ready for the full shell in the next row

R9 - you put your first hdcshell in your shell column on the same row as you start a new column with the
hdcV1

Thank you RoseRed for posting all this! I have made 2 of these but not in awhile...this makes me want to make one using your changes. I love the red one and the way the coloring is! Is that JoAnn's sensations yarn that you used for it?

Just to let everyone know, we're having a technical problem with the pdf file RoseRed tried to upload in the first post.

We hope we'll have the file available to download a little later today.

All better now. I found out that you can only post 10 uploads in a post. Once you upload your 11th one - it kicks the 1st on out. It still says [Attach whatever] but it's no longer there.

I've been gone all day. I'm glad I checked in before heading off to bed.

How very wonderful of you to share this beautiful adaptation with the 'Ville!

It is just lovely and I always love to see how the Sensations Boucle striping just seems to run out perfectly over the shawls - I have done a few of Doni's and am now looking forward to try your pattern!

Thanks so very very much for sharing!
