How to crochet a V-Stitch Chevron Shawl – Rheanna
Looking for a rectangle shawl pattern with a difference. Rheanna is just what you need. A v-stitch chevron shawl. Great for beginners, read on to find out more about this shawl and how to make your own Rheanna.
V- Stitch Chevron Shawl inspiration
I let the yarn tell me what it wants to be, 100% of the time. For a while now, I have been tossing around the idea of a rectangle shawl with a ripple. Like with most things, this kinda of stayed on my list until this yarn appeared in my house. A v-stitch chevron shawl wasn’t something I immediately thought of, however, once I came across it, I knew I had to have one as it would almost certainly be flattering in the layout I wanted – with ripples across your back.
Continuing the theme of naming shawl designs after members of my family, this design is named after my niece Rheanna. To see some other designs in the collection, check out Joanne, Lena and Simone.
Yarn and Materials
To create my Rheanna, v-stitch chevron rectangle shawl, I used a custom colourway from Flo’s Yarn Basket which is now called Aegean. Although I didn’t intend on creating something that reminded me so much of the sea when I chose the colours, the way it has worked up, especially in this rectangle shawl pattern, is undeniably reminiscent of the sea. Luckily, Flo allowed me to help in choosing the name and I chose Aegean because there is a sea with that name close to Cyprus where Flo lives. It also occurs to me that the Caribbean sea looks very similar and then it was a short leap to Rheanna as a name. No relation, different spelling.
Anywho, back to the important details. This cake is made of 1250m of 60% Cotton 40% Acrylic yarn, hand wound by Flo and using 6 different shades from her range. To find out more about Flo, her yarn and to get a hand on your own cakes check out her website here. For other designs featuring Flo’s yarn, check out the Estelle Wrap.
Pattern info & tips
Rheanna is a beginner crochet pattern. I know some people may be intimidated by the ripple, but they shouldn’t be. The hardest part of this pattern is the set up, once you get into it it works up quickly and flies off your hook. It is easily customisable and would work fabulously in a thicker weight yarn. I would probably use less yardage if I went higher than a dk or 3 weight yarn.
