After The Flames Shawl
This After The Flames Shawl was inspired by the colours in the yarn that I used to create this shawl. There were lovely, seamless colour changes from red to black to grey which incredibly resembles the glowing coal or wood embers and then to the grey embers that float in the breeze. Even though this yarn is lovely, I struggled to find a stitch that would do justice to this yarn until I saw how to do that V Stitch pattern as a triangle. I was utterly amazed at how easy it was to crochet and the After The Flames Shawl was worked up in no time. This shawl is extremely versatile as well as you can make into a shawlette or scarf depending on how many rows you choose to do. Please find the written pattern and sketched diagram for the V Stitch pattern and the YouTube Tutorial below.

After The Flames Shawl Free Crochet Pattern
Form a magic ring (MR),
Row 1: Ch 3, dc 1, ch 1, dc 1 (v st) into the MR, turn your work at end of row 1 (1 ch-3 and 1 v st)
Row 2: Ch 3, *dc 1, ch 1, dc 1 into each ch 1 sp from the previous rows v st*, rep * to * along the row, to finish each row dc 1, ch 1, dc 1 (1 v st) between the dc 1 and turning ch, turn your work at end of row 2 (1 ch-3, 2 v sts)
Row 3 – onwards: Repeat row 2 until you have your desired length.
Connect the balls of yarn to each other as needed as your shawl increases in size.
To finish the shawl, secure the work and weave in all the ends. Now you are all set to wear this shawl!
– Each row increases by 1 v st e.g. row 3 = 3 v sts and 1 ch-3, row 4 = 4 v sts and 1 ch-3, row 5 = 5 v sts and 1 ch-3 etc.
– For the shawl, I did a total of 67 rows but this After The Flames Shawl can be made into a shawlette or scarf by decreasing the number of rows that you do.
I have also made an After The Flames Cowl using the 1 ball of Moda Vera Bouvardia in Embers. If you are interested in learning how to do this please click on the link: http://www.allcrafttv.com/flames-cowl-crochet/
