Attached is a pattern for making a ruffled shawl with hood.

RUFFLED SHAWL/CAPE BY LINDA KAYE SMITH

Dec. 21, 2009 - LKS-001

Based on Lion Brand’s Day to Night Poncho & Caron Brand’s Ruffle Scarf with Bliss Patterns


GAUGE:
9 dc + 5 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Chunky Yarn, Weight #5, 140g/153yds per skein. Shawl as shown in pictures required 14 skeins of Wool-Ease Chunky #5 or equivalent weight.
Crochet Hook Size: K (10-1/2 MM) is what I use to get this gauge. Check your gauge!


Body
MAKE 37 ROWS FOR 33 INCH LENGTH FROM NECKLINE. I’m showing the rows with the number of increases for each row since that helps me keep track. I use a ‘flag’ beside the row I’m working on.

Ch 26 (Make 2) Note: When adding the 2 dc at end of rows, I add the extra dc in the next to last stitch and then end the row with a double crochet. This reduces the ‘hole’ that is often visible when you end a row with an increase.

Row 1 Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across; turn = 24 dc
Row 2 Ch 3, dc in each dc across; turn (Tie a piece of yarn through a stitch to mark as Right Side)
Row 3 Ch 3, dc in next 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc, (dc in next 5 dc, 2 dc in next dc) 3 times; turn – 28 dc

twice; turn – 36 dc
Row 11 Ch 3, dc across; turn – 36 dc
Row 12 Ch 3, dc across; - 36 dc Finish Off

NOTE TO MAKE A HOOD WITH A MORE ROUNDED CENTER, mark the edge that will become the back seam, then reduce one dc on center back edge, beginning with Row 8. This will make the seam curve more and reduce the pointy appearance. If you like the point, then just use the pattern as above.

FINISHING
Sew in all loose ends. Assemble the two pieces on a counter top or other flat area so that you can see the lineup of the stitches. Line up bottom edges and neck edges and top edges and pin in place so that stitches are matching. BE SURE YOU HAVE THE RIGHT SIDE UP SO YOU CAN SEE HOW YOUR STITCHING IS LOOKING. THIS WILL BE THE CENTER BACK SEAM SO YOU WANT IT MATCHED AND SMOOTH.

Thread a yarn needle with yarn and beginning at bottom edge, weave back and forth from left side to right side pulling the seam tightly together and making sure that stitches line up properly. I use small stitches to be sure that the double crochets are pulled together and that there are not any ‘holes’ visible. Sew the pieces together from bottom edge to top edge adding some extra stitches at neck where the hood portion was added to the body portion.

Sew in all loose ends. Decide which side is best after you sew the seams together. Whichever side you choose, mark it so that you have it facing you when you start the ruffle.

RUFFLED EDGE
With right side facing you. Begin at left hand lower edge and continue around the outside edge.
Row 1, Attach yarn with slip stitch to a dc on bottom edge of left side. Single crochet around to
beginning stitch; when you come to the edge of a row, just put two single crochets in stitch or
whatever it takes to keep the item flat. Continue around the outer edge and slip stitch into
beginning stitch – do not turn
Row 2, Ch 3; dc into ch3 just completed; then 2 dc in each sc around, end with slip stitch in
beginning ch 3 stitch – do not turn
Row 3, 2 dc in next dc and 1 dc in next dc; continue alternating 2 dc and 1 dc around in this way –
do not turn
Row 4, slip stitch in each stitch around and fasten off.
WEAR AND ENJOY!

What size person does this fit? I really like this. I wear 1-2X, so I'd hate to get this all made just to find out it doesn't fit. Also, I am 5'10" tall but it doesn't look like that is a problem.

Hi, I'm glad you like the pattern. It is quite full around so it will fit just about any size. And, I am 5'9" and it come almost to my knees. If you want it longer, you can add more rows following the increases called for. Just be sure to buy more yarn! I've made 5 of these using Lion Brand's Wool Ease Chunky and now plan to make one using Jiffy. It needs the #5 weight yarn.

Ooooh, I'll bet this will fit me, and you must have been reading my mind, because I thought I would use Jiffy also. It's a wonderful yarn to work with and I have lots of skeins I bought on sale. I've been saving it for large projects.
