Meandering Paw Prints Shawl FREE Crochet Pattern

Hello to all of my Amy B Stitched followers. It has been a super busy summer here on the Coastal Bend, but I have finally found time to eke out another pattern thanks to Julie! She private messaged me over on my facebook page and asked for my help to expand my Meandering Paw Prints pet scarf pattern into a full sized triangle shawl for her sister. So I went to work and came up with THIS design!! I contemplated a different name and asked my followers over on facebook their opinions. But I got an overwhelming response from the majority that I should "stick with the brand" that I had created and that they would always know it was my work if they saw it was "Meandering Paw Prints".




Remember....I am a human and sometimes make mistakes!!  If you find an error with my pattern, please let me know in the comment section and I will try to correct it as soon as possible!!! If you are having difficulty with my pattern, the best way to contact me for help is through my Amy B Stitched Facebook page.


This is an Original Design by Amy B Stitched. Feel free to make for profit, but remember to give credit to me, and link back to my blog www.amysastitchatatime.blogspot.com

MEANDERING PAW PRINTS SHAWL


SKILL LEVEL: Intermediate

SIZE
Small/Medium 63” across top x 40” sides x 27 “down the center. 
Large/X-Large 80” across top x 52” sides x 35” down the center. Changes for L/XL in bold type.

MATERIALS: Size I/9/5.50mm crochet hook, Worsted weight/medium/size 4 yarn (S/M 10oz (approx. 550 yds), LG/XL 21oz (approx. 1220 yds), scissors, yarn needle

GAUGE: without blocking. The first 2 rows of pattern from center bottom to top = 1 ½”, across the top of 2nd row = 2 ½” 

TERMS AND ABBREVIATIONS:
Ch – chain
Dc – double crochet
Sl st – Slip Stitch
St (s) – stitch (es)
Sk – skip (skipped)

NOTES
1) Ch 3 at the beginning of each row counts as the first stitch (first dc) of that row.
2) There are 2 sizes with the L/XL size changes marked in bold type.
3) To help keep track of your stitches, the row stitch counts are in parenthesis at the end of each row. Chains are counted as individual stitches, except where you are instructed to “2 sc in ch 4 sp” then the entire ch sp is counted as one and you will work into the next stitch following the ch 4 sp. 
4) Dc in last sk st: Insert the hook into the skipped stitch indicated and continue with your dc in the same manner as the other dc. This binds the two sts together into a cross stitch.



   5)       If you find yourself having difficulty with this pattern, please contact me via private message on my Amy B Stitched Facebook page. It is the quickest way to reach me and I am always happy to help.
