Skylark in Wonderland ~ Free Crochet Pattern by Jessie At Home for Frabjous Fibers

Skylark in Wonderland
Free Crochet Pattern
Easy/Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot for Frabjous Fibers

After designing the Skylark scarf, I had a few ideas for a spin~off pattern. The opportunity to bring life to the idea came when I was contacted by Frabjous Fibers to make a version using 2 of their mini~skein packs of Mad Hatter (sport weight). It was a perfect pairing, and I am madly in love with the result!

Size:
11.5″ tall, approx 67″ wingspan

Yarn:
Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter Mini Skein packs:
1 Dark Rainbow part 1
1 Neon part 2

Hook:
G/6/4.0 mm – Furls Odyssey hook used

Gauge:
20 sts by 11 rows in 4″ in double crochet ~ use whatever size hook is necessary to obtain gauge.

Other Notions:
yarn needle

Stitches and Skills used:
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
st(s) – stitch(es)
*optional stitches*
Fsc – foundation single crochet
Fhdc – foundation half double crochet
Fdc – foundation double crochet

Getting Started:
If your gauge is too large, you will not have enough yarn to complete each set of repeats for each color. There is only about 2 oz of colors 2~9 left over when worked in the proper gauge.
This wrap will need to be blocked when done for the best look.

    Jessie, you are so talented! My favorite thing in the crochet world is shawls! I can’t get enough! But, I am so slow now, when I crochet, because of a chronic illness that affects me in many ways… Neurological issues affect memory, I have to concentrate really hard on pqttern changes and cannot keep count. If I dont stick to one stitch for an entire row My brain fatigues to the point that I cant stay awake. I only get a few rows completed before I fall asleep. It doesnt get better for days, and I have to put the project away. I also have lost my coordination, motor skills and fine motor skills. I am as clumbsy crocheting now as a toddler trying to learn to crochet.. I have to concentrate really hard. The more physical use of my hands (changing colors, crocheting over tails,) make my hands swell, tendonitis issues flare, and pain levels go through the roof.
    Sadly, I haven’t been able to continue work on my beloved Skylark shawl that I was crafting using the original pattern with the beautiful, but fine yarn you used. Just to tiny for me to handle. It makes me so sad!
    Now, this shawl, with the easier color change (blocks of color without the two strips of another color) makes it possible for me to maybe concentrate on the stitch changes per row, and I’m very excited! I will need to use a medium weight yarn, and the larger size of shawl I’ll end up with is ok. I’m bedridden, and the more cozy the better! So I am really excited about this new version!
    One question: which of those colors is at the beginning of the shawl? I need to know for point of reference and color placement. I only went into such a long description of my health issues that affect my crochet because I wanted to let you know that this new pattern, which you are offering for free, is making it possible for ill and handicapped crocheters to craft a version of Skylark, that beautiful shawl, for themselves! It boosts our spirits! Thank you so much, and I will be purchasing some yarn and supplies from your offers here, to support you in your selfless spirit of giving. You rock!

      Maschelle, thank you for your kind words! I am so glad you have found a way to make the shawl that will work for you.

      I started my shawl with a deep pink, then went to red, and continued in rainbow order. If you are on Facebook, I would love for you to join my group (it is linked toward the bottom of the post) and share pictures.

      Thanks again, your reply has made me quite happy.

    I am trying to attempt the Jullette Shawl. I just started it and Im trying to understand the rows…is row one only a few stitches or do you work it thru the 87 double crochets???Can you explain if the rows work all around the 87 stitches or is it only partial rows? My brain cant grasp it..lolol

      The rows start small and get bigger. Basically, you make a neck opening round, and you then work a triangular shawl into the round, so each row adds a few more stitches from the neck. Sometimes you go all the way around, and those are labeled row/round. If you follow the pattern as it is written, turning when it says, and using markers as it says, you should be fine.

      Just don’t repeat as many times. It’s a 4 row repeat, so you can make it as big or small as you want. It is only about 12″ wide, so that should not be a problem, and the length is determined by how many times to make the 4 row repeat.

    Hi. I love this pattern and have 10 colors of Classic Elite Firefly that I am going to use for it. I just started and am confused by the stitch count/instructions. After row 1 there are 102 sts. Row 2 is confusing me – after “Ch 6, turn, DC in 4th ch from hook”, it says “dc in next 2 ch” (there are no chains from the previous row – just sc, hdc and dc), then DC in 30, hdc in 34, sc in 34 – that uses all the 102 stitches, but there is still “skip 1, sc in next, sk 1, hdc in next – that is supposed to be 104 stitches, but seems like it would be 106. The counts don’t match and I don’t know where to work those last 4 (sk, sc, sk, hdc). Since this row pretty much repeats every other row, I need to understand what it is supposed to do. Do you have a video by any chance for these 2 rows or can you explain it so I understand, please?
    I’m really looking forward to making this as well as the Skylark Scarf and Juliette Shawl. Your designs are beautiful.
    Thanks.

    Maybe I need to take a shower like Cathie B. But I don’t understand your second row on the Skylark. My count is off at the end of the row. I’ve done it several times and I only have no stitches left to skip 1, single crochet, skip one, hdc. Sorry I just don’t get it. Help please. Really want to make your pretty shawl.

      Lol! In case the shower didn’t work, let’s see if I can help. 😉

      After the first row you will have 34 sc, 34 hdc, 34 dc.

      You will finish the first row and NOT turn yet. For the second row you ch 6 and THEN turn. Next you dc in the 4th, 5th & 6th ch from the hook. This will effectively add on 4 dc (as the turning ch counts as a dc). Now you dc in the next 30 sts, hdc in the next 34 st, and sc in the next 34 st. You will have 4 sts left. You skip the first, sc in the second, skip the third, and hdc in the last.

      Hopefully that helps.

            I’m having trouble with the counts too. I seem to be counting too many at the end of my rows, but the pattern seems to be working up the proper shape?? I’m still pretty new to crochet so I must not be adding some things together that make it all click. I feel 95% sure I’m crocheting in all the right stitches though.

          • Jessie
            July 31, 2016 at 7:17 am (9 months ago)

            Just remember when you crochet 2 stitches together, that only counts as 1 stitch.

    Hi Jessie – I really love this shawl – it reminds me of the Danish Tie Shawl that was on the cover of Spin-off a couple of years ago, and I have been looking for a crocheted version ever since that time. Yes, I am a spinner of yarn – and my guild decided that we should have a “spin-along” and then do a Knit (or Crochet) along to make ourselves a poncho. Well, I was very enthusiastic about this project to start off, I even had a perfect bunch of roving to make my yarn. Which I have been making – grey wool with teal mohair combed in – then I decided to do some “ombre” work and mixed in some other nice roving in blue and teal and green – it’s been a fun project – then, all of a sudden, I realized – why was I making a poncho – I would never wear a poncho – I hate ponchos – project screeched to a halt until I saw your lovely Skylark Shawl. Now that I’m back on track, I have az question for you – I am a plus sized lady and I’d really like to make sure that this shawl is going to be sized correctly – do you have any tips – do I want to start with a longer chain to begin – or what. I’d appreciate your help – I’m also thinking about adding a hood – any ideas? Thanks a bunch. Tina T-P

      If you look at the picture of the shawl laying flat you will see it is sort of wing shaped. If you want it to be longer, you can either use a larger gauge, or you can add stitches. It is crocheted at an angle, so the math will not be fun. You could add 15 or 30 stitches to start, adding 5 or 10 of each kind of st to each row (there are sets of sc, hdc, and dc in each row). That should add about 2 or 4 inches to the length, and a lot of yarn to the finished amount. You can make it longer by just repeating the 4 row repeat more times.

      I’m not sure how you would add a hood as it is not a cape, and it would greatly reduce the amount of ways you could wear it.

    Hi Jessie, I have several of your patterns I’m going to make, this is the one I’m doing next (now). Like some other people, I’m sure, I don’t have the funds to get more yarn but I have some in a stash. I know about substituting and all I have enough of for something like this is Caron’s Simply Soft in many colors that would look great – BUT I know the weight is wrong! What exactly would happen here if I use it, would it simply be twice as big as normal? I’m on row 3 and this is what I see happening, which to me wouldn’t be the end of the world, I wear 2X. While I don’t want this to be a long coat, lol, I like it well enough to have a really long piece. Before I go any further tho, is there any stitch count reduction you can suggest tome that would keep this thing a little smaller, but looking enough like the pattern for me to use this yarn? I love the piece and appreciate all of your free knowledge and wonderful patterns!

      It shouldn’t double the size. It really depends on your gauge. I honestly can’t give you a good answer without writing a new pattern in your gauge. All I can say if is you want it to be smaller, you can make it with 15 less sts each row by removing 5 of each kind of st from each row.

      If you made it through row 2, row 4 is basically the same, but you put 2 sts in the ch sps and skip the sts between the ch sps. Just take it one step at a time. Be sure your st count for row 3 is correct before starting row 4.

          The spaces are the chains, the abbreviation are listed at the beginning of the pattern. Make sure to read through the whole pattern (including the beginning) before starting. Just go one step at a time. If you want more help, you should join the facebook group listed in the pattern and post a photo of where you are stuck with a clear description of what is confusing you. I can’t really help you more without photos.

        Maybe this is terminology I am not familiar with but throughout the pattern it states” carrying color B/A under the stitch” I thought that meant that you are to carry the yarn not being crocheted
        at the time along with the one in use and crochet it on top of the row being worked.

          I don’t see that anywhere in this pattern, are you sure you are commenting on the pattern you are using? Maybe you are using the regular Skylark pattern (NOT Skylark in wonderland) in which case there is yarn carried under about 4 sts of many of the rows, but not under ALL the sts.

            No bother, I just was confused because I didn’t realize that was the pattern you were using at first. Yes, you do carry the yarn for a few stitches in that pattern, so that you don’t have so many ends to weave in.
