keck collection

the Keclyn shawl is part of the Keck Collection.
This group of 4 patterns is a celebration of the sc v-stitch. I absolutely love the way it looks, love the ease of stitching, love that it is detailed and lacy and yet somehow still a solid fabric. Truly a versatile stitch.

Keclyn shawl yarns

The grey, fuzzy yarn is, unfortunately, no longer available. However, If you are wanting to create a Keclyn with the same, cozy feel and fuzzy halo, I recommend:

Upcycle Suri Alpaca by WeCrochet.
Fiber Content – 100% Suri alpaca
Amount – 109 yd [100 m]│1.76 oz [50 g]
Weight – #4 Medium│Worsted

“When our mills spin our yarn, a little bit is left over from each batch. Instead of wasting it, we work with our mills to create new limited-edition yarns. WeCrochet™ Upcycle yarns are made by blending these small batches of high-quality fibers together so they don’t go to waste!

Upcycle Suri Alpaca is a wonderfully versatile weight yarn that gets its flexible gauge from the brushed fibers that create a soft halo. Crocheted at a loose gauge, Upcycle Suri Alpaca creates a sheer fabric that allows the halo to take center stage, and at a denser gauge, it creates a playfully fuzzy fabric that is perfect for decorative toys and accents. Work it up alone or carry it along with another yarn for a unique effect.” –WeCrochet.com

King Cole Timeless Chunky
Fiber Content
– 50% cotton, 50% polyester
Amount – 392 yd [358 m]│7 oz [200 g]
Weight – #3 Light│DK

“Tran seasonal and trendy, Comfy Cotton Blend is a 50% cotton, 50% polyester yarn with subtle flecks of color against a natural base. This lightweight CYC 3 yarn is perfect for summer shawls, tops, shrugs and adorable baby gifts. The large 200 gram convenient cake put up allows for crafters to make an entire scarf or small baby blanket with one cake and no ends to weave in!” –LionBrand.com

NOTES

CONSTRUCTION

Shawl is worked flat, turning after every row; stitched from bottom up, growing in width and depth with each row, side edging stitches are worked at the same time as shawl body.

GENERAL

  • Pattern is written in US terms with imperial and metric measurements.
  • Yarn amount given is for hat as shown│written. Yardage [m] will vary with any alterations of pattern.
  • Read through each line before beginning to avoid any confusion during stitching.
  • Refer to Special Stitches instruction {below}, and Tutorial(s) as needed, and customizations {within pattern} if desired.
  • The Special Stitches instructions‭ ‬are detailed, written directions on how to complete specialty stitches as worked within this pattern (◊ pdf provides illustrations when needed).

GAUGE

  • Gauge information is given in Details {above} as well as within the pattern; verify that project matches given measurements.
  • While gauge is not crucial for this project, any deviation from gauge given will vary the size of shawl created and the amount(s) of yarn used.
  • It is always recommended to make a swatch {in this case, work through ‘Gauge Check’ within pattern}; using same yarn as intended for shawl; stitch, wash, and block a gauge swatch in the same manner you will be using for your hat to ensure fabric created is as desired and will result in proper measurements│size intended {refer to Swatch Guide for basics on proper swatch creation}.

UNDERSTANDING THE PATTERN

  • Pattern is written for 1 size. 
  • Number after period (.) at the end of round is the stitch count; 8 sts. This means the round just completed should have 8 stitches.
  • If no stitch count is given at the end of round, stitch total did not change from previous listing.
  • PM as instructed for identification│future stitch placement│reference.
  • When working into a V-st, work around the chains, encasing the ch.
  • Samples shown were lightly blocked without stretching│pinning; laid flat and steamed to relax stitches.
  • Samples shown are exactly as written with no alterations to pattern.
  • Model is 5’2″ with 45″ [114.5 cm] chest circumference.
