I first got the inspiration for this crochet wrap when my family and I recently took a trip to Charleston, SC. We’ll be moving there this summer and I CAN’T WAIT. I love everything about this place. You could spend days exploring downtown Charleston alone. I was so inspired by every beautiful detail about this city. One of the things I love is the spanish moss draped over almost every tree. The big twisted oak trees with spanish moss swaying in the breeze are so dreamy. I instantly thought of a drapey crochet wrap to wear on cool evenings.

Could I trouble you to provide the measurement down the center back to the point? I am very short and some triangle scarves are too long. The picture looks like this shawl is shallow enough to work for me, but I need to see the length to width ratio before I risk wasting my time.
Of course, mine is 30” down the center to the point, blocked. Just for reference I am 5’2”, let me know if you have any other questions.

This is beautiful! I’m not one for shawls and was wondering if this could be made into a light weight throw. Thank you for any reply!
It absolutely could! You could either use it in the same triangle shape or you could make two and seam them together on the longer side.
Every time I work this pattern (love it by the way) on row 7 I end up with a DC just before the ch2 sp, I then DC ch2 DC, and then DC, ch1, sk1, dc… and then on the repeat I end up with DC, ch1, sk1, DC (into ch2 sp) ch2 DC, then ch1, ski, dc… Does that sound right?
Hi! Do you have any tips for modifying this pattern to make a scarf instead of a shawl?
Hi Emily, if you just wanted a rectangular style scarf you could follow the st pattern in the shawl. So do the same amount of dc rows and the same amount of dc,ch rows. You would just have to figure out how long you want it and ch that number when you start. Hope that helps!
