CIRCULAR “COBWEB” SHAWL. ***This is an authentic pattern from The Delineator magazine published in 1891. While the original pattern is now copywrite free, the present copy is copywrited. © Galynn Zitnik 2012. .

This shawl is generally made of Shetland floss or Iceland wool in white or some delicate tint, and is begun at the center. The work is done very loosely with a coarse hook and the stitches are drawn out long. In making this shawl, the rows are worked in groups of double crochets. The groups are single, double and treble. A single group is 3 double crochets. A double group is 6 double crochets separated into 2 groups of 3 by a chain stitch between the 4th and 5th. A treble group is 9 double crochets separated into 3 groups of 3, by a chain stitch between the 3rd and 4th, and the 6th and 7th double crochets. Make a chain of 4 and join to form a circle. Make a loose chain of 3, and 3 double crochets in the 1st chain of circle, 1 chain, 3 double crochets in 2nd chain of circle, 1 ch., 3 double crochets in 3rd chain, 1 chain, and 2 double crochets in 4th chain, joining the last double crochet to the 3rd stitch of the chain made after closing the circle. This will make 4 single groups of double crochets. Now thread a needle with a piece of the wool and run it through the groups close to the circle-chain drawing them up tightly by tying the wool in three or four hard knots.


Second row.—Pull up the loop on the hook very long. (This is to be done at the beginning of every row). Then make a double group of double crochets in every space underneath, with 1 chain also between the double groups; and join the last stitch of this and every row to the first one of the row. Third row.—Make a treble group of double crochets in every space underneath, and a single crochet in the chain stitch between the double groups. Fourth row.—Make a double group in each space of the treble groups, making no chain stitch between the double groups; and make a single crochet in every single crochet underneath. Fifth row.—Make a treble group in every space of each double group underneath, and one single crochet in the threads between the double groups, and a single crochet in each single crochet underneath. Sixth row.—Same as 4th row. Seventh row.—Make a double group in the space of every double group underneath, and a single crochet in the threads between the double groups and in every single crochet underneath. Eighth row.—Make a double group in the space of every double group underneath, and a single crochet in each single crochet underneath. Ninth row.—Make a treble group in the space of every double group underneath, and a single crochet in each single crochet. Tenth row.—Same as 4th. Eleventh row.—Make a double group in the space of every double group underneath, and a single crochet in the threads between the groups of doubles and also in every single crochet underneath. For the next four rows.—Make a double group in the space of every double group underneath, and a single crochet in every single crochet underneath. For the Border—Make 9 double crochets in each space of the last row with a single crochet in the single crochet underneath. For the extreme edge make 1 single loose crochet in the upper loop of every stitch underneath.
