FO: Scallop Wrap

One preschool teacher down, two to go! Mrs. P.'s shawl is complete! This was a pretty quick project that I whipped off in just a few hours. I think it might work better in a Super Bulky yarn as recommended. Nonetheless, I still like it.

Project details:
Pattern: Moda Dea Scallop Wrap
Yarn: Caron Perfect Match 'Cape Cod Blue' worsted weight acrylic, double stranded, ~600 yds
Hook: 11.5mm P hook
Pattern Changes: (as always)
  1. Hook size was increased to meet gauge.
  2. I wanted the shawl to be a bit longer down the back, and the scallops just seemed like they needed a bit more bulk to them at the bottom. So, at the end of row 13, do not finish off, turn.
  3. Row 14: ch3, dc in first ch-3 space, 2 dc in next ch-3 space, *3 dc in next ch-3 space (8 times)**, 1 dc in next ch-3 space (3 times), repeat from * across, ending at ** with 2 ch-3 spaces remaining, 2 dc in next ch-3 space, 1 dc in last ch-3 space, 1 dc in 3rd ch of ch-5, turn.
  4. Row 15: ch5, dc in the space after first 2dc group, ch 2, dc in the space after 2nd 2dc group, [(ch 1, dc in 2nd dc of 3dc group, ch1, dc in space between 3dc groups) 7 times, ch 1, dc in 2nd dc of 3dc group, (ch1, skip next dc, dc in next dc) twice] 5 times, [(ch 1, dc in 2nd dc of 3dc group, ch1, dc in space between 3dc groups) 7 times, ch 1, dc in 2nd dc of 3dc group, ch1, skip next dc, space before next 2dc group, ch 2, dc in the space after next 2dc group, ch2, dc in 3rd ch of ch-5. Finish off, weave in all ends.

Very pretty! I'm wondering if it will have ribbon at the top? The first row reminds me of baby sweaters that have ribbon woven through the spaces.

Emily - it's not designed to, but I had the very same thought, as the top spaces are huge. I'll have to go ribbon shopping...

That's a nice way to end the wrap -- I'm working on the same pattern, but to be used (hopefully) as a hip wrap for over a swimsuit. I'll need to extend the length a bit more than that, but I like how it finishes the edge -- thanks for sharing.

I have 2 of these wraps (in other yarns) which I had deemed "not long enough", sadly I shelved them until I could work out an extension. THEN, I found this link in ravelry... Thank you, thank you, thank you!
