Lesson 1: Chain + Double Crochet Stitches: I'm going to teach you how to chain and double Crow Shea before we start the project, our project requires a group of 3 to 4. Double crow Shays for this instruction, I'm just going to show you double crow. She's in a row. So the chain we're going to start by making a little slip stitch, put it on the hook and tighten it enough that it still slides along the top of the hook. We're gonna yarn over and bring that yarn through at first hoop to create our first change . You are over. Pull through yarn over, pull through, yarn over. Pull through, yarn over. Pull through. And this is how we just create a chain. That's the chain stitch. Two. Double Crow Shea. Whenever you start a project that just goes back and forth, you have those two first chains, and that acts is your first post. So double Cochet is yarn over. Go into your stitch to the back to get some yarn. Bring that new yard to the front yarn over. Pull through to you're in over. Pull through to we'll do that again. Yarn over. Go into the stitch below. Get some yarn from the back. Bring that to the fronts. We have three stitches on her hook. Yarn over. Pull through to yarn over. Pull through to do that again. You aren't over to start. Go through the stitch to the back to get some yarn. Bring that yard to the front. You're in over. Pull through to there are over. Pull through to there's another double Cochet. I'll do that again. We aren't over. Go into the stitch to get some yarn. Bring that yard to the front yard over. Pull through to yarn over. Pull through to, and that's how you make the double Croce stitch. 3. Lesson 2: Material + Anatomy: for the show project will be using Red Heart Boutique, Unforgettable yarn. This one is called Sunrise. It's a self striping herself pattern yarns. So our project will change colors automatically. We won't have to do it. This pattern requires just two stitches. The Chain Stitch and the double Croce stitch. This is a small version, a very small version of what will be creating. I just wanted to go over the anatomy of the show. Before we begin, we start with a circle, we're gonna crush a four chains and make it into a circle. And then along the top will all have four Double crow Shay's. Then between each section will have one chain, and then the rest of it will be three double Croce groups. So we have our Circle four. Double Crow, Shay's a Chain four, Double Crow, Shay's and then we will make three chains to be the first post of this, a group of four double crow shays. So it will be three more Double crow Shay's a chain and the Miss is the center. This will be the center, and when I say the point, I mean the point on the bottom so When we come back, we'll have three. Double Crow, Shays one change three Double Koshis, One chain and then three Double Crow, Shay's and ending with the fourth double Cruciate because along the top is for a double Crow Shay's, then Wolf three. Chain three. Double Cochet. So you have a group of four. Chain three. Double Crow, Shays, Chain three, Double Crow, Shay's and then Chain and then in that same area. Three. Double Crow, Shays Chain three. Double Crow, Shays Change four. Double Cocis And then we'll be doing it along this way. So we'll be working back and forth in a V to create this shoal triangle shape. The hook that I'm using is a six millimeter J size that works very nicely with this weight of yarn. 4. Lesson 3: Crocheting Part 1: to begin the shoal. We're going to Chain four. I'm gonna create that slip, not put it on the hook. Tighten it up a little bit and then make four chains Urine over. Pull through urine over. Pull through urine over. Pull through your over. Pull through there. We have four chains. We want to create a circle now, So we're going to take that last stitch and bring it together with the 1st 1 and that will create this circle rate in there. And we're just gonna pull that through with a slip stitch just to slip it all together. I'm using to begin the tail as well. This way. Don't have to weave it in at the end because I'm just weaving it in at the beginning. Here's our circle and this circle is this part of our example. So now we need to create four Double Crow Shay's and then a chain and four double crow Shay's to start that first double crow Shea, we chain 31 to three. So see that tail just disappeared into the work, which is fine. And now we need three more double crow Shay's. So we're going to yarn over go right into that circle. Go to the back to get some yarn. Bring that. Yearn to the front. We have three stitches on the hook. You're in over to get four. Pull through to yarn over. Pull through to just gonna bring that together with the other stitch. So there's two of the four. Let's do that again. A double Cochet, you are in over right through the center of the circle. Get some yarn. Bring it to the front. You are in over. Pull through to yarn over. Pull through to there's three. We need four. You're in. Over. Go through the circle to get some urine bringing to the front. There are over. Pull through to urine. Over. Pull through to So there we go. So this is get our example again. This is this part of our example before Double Crow Shays. So now we're gonna do a chain and double Cochet up the other side. So Chain One and now we're going to four. Double crow Shays up the other side. Yarn over into the circle. Pull the New York to the front. You're in over Double Cochet urine over double Cochet. Let's do that again. You aren't overthrew the whole bringing to the front. Pull through, pull through another double crow, Shea And one more double crow Shea Because the top gets four groupings of double Crow Shay's There we go. So this will be the top. This will be the point, and we're gonna build on. From there. We start that top with three chains as our first post for Double Cochet. 123 And now we're gonna double Crow Shea three more times into this stitch you're in. Over, into the stitch. Get some urine from the back. You're in over. Pull through to here on over. Pull through to I mean, just move this out of the way. Any two more you're in over into that stitch. Get smear and bring it to the front. You're on over. Pull through to urine over, Pull through to one more double crow Shea into that same stitch. And then between every grouping, we have one shape. So here we go. So there's the top. And now we're gonna work this way into that. Okay, so this is our point right here. So we'll need to groups of three double Cochet with one chain in the middle. It's gonna yarn over. Go into that empty section. Double Crow Shea Three times there is one. Double Crow, Shea two, Double Crow, Shay's three Double Crow, Shay's That's one group We chain between the groups and now we're gonna three double Cochet up this way. So this is our point. That's the bottom part of the show. Three more double Crow Shay's into that same area and three and one chain between groupings . So here, that's the point. That's the top we're going to do. Four. Double Crow Shays because this is the top. So come into that last stitch hunt for it sometimes. And Double Crow Shay's, That's the second double Crow, Shea, the third Double Crow, Shea and the fourth. Okay, let's compare this to our example. So here's our example with our hoop that we started with at the beginning. And then we went this way. So here it iss see. So now we're gonna work the V this way. This is the top. So we need four double crow Shays and we start our double crow Shea at the top with three chains. That's the first post. And going into that very first stitch for a second double Crow Shea into that stitch again for the third double. Crow Shea into the stitch again for the fourth double Cochet. And then we chain between every grouping. Here we have the next spot that we're gonna put three. Double Crow Shay's. There's one to three, and between every grouping there is one chain, and now this is the point. So in the point we need three Double Crow, Shays and a Chain and three double Crow she hates we're going to come into that point. There's one Double crow, Shea two, Double Crow, Shay's three Double Crow, Shay's That's one grouping of three. Now we need one chain. That's the bottom. So we're going to do another three. Double Crow Shays in that same area. Double Crow, Shea one double crow she to double Crow, Shea three and a chain between groupings. One chain now, three Double Crow Shays into the next empty spot, one to three and the chain between every group one chain. And now that's the top. So we need four Double crow Shays at the top. Just go into the first available stitch Double Crow Shea, the second double Cochet. They're Double Crow, Shea and the fourth double Crow. She Let's look at our example again. So here it's starting to look a little bit more like the example. I'm going to do a couple more rows with you and then I'll continue on my own and you can continue on. And then when we achieve the rose that we want anywhere between 20 rows and 40 rose, really this pattern can be as large or small is you like. Then we'll come back together and I'll show you how to weave in the ends. So let's do a couple more rose. I'm going to three chain for that first post Double Crow Shea Double Crow Shea. One more double Cochet to make. Four. There's our group of four cause it's at the top chain between all of our groupings and there's our space. So we'll do. Three. Double Crow Shays in here. Three. Double Crow. She is here, and there's our point where we do three Double Crow, Shay's a chain and three double crow Shays And then we start up dissent. We're going to double Cochet into this next area. One to three and one chain and now into this area. One two. Double Crow. Shay's three Double Crow, Shay's one chain to separate our grouping and this is our point. So we do three in this next area, a chain and three so one to three one chain and into that same point three more times, one to three and chain between groups. And now we come up into this area and do three Double Crow Shay's in that empty spot, one to three and one chain. There's Theo Empty spot. We're going to do three Double Crow. She's in there, one to three on a chain, and then this is our top. So we do four Double Crow Shays in that last stitch, one to three and four, and then we'll do one more road together, and then we'll continue on until we get the roads that we want. We'll meet again to weave in the ends to complete the project. So here we go. One more row. 123 and Double Crow, Shea Third, Double Crow, Shea Fourth Double Crow, Shea and one chain coming to the next empty space with three Double Crow, Shay's one to three, Double Crow, Shay's and a chain between the groupings one double Cochet to three and a chain to separate the next 11 to three. I change a separate, and here we're coming to the point now. So here we're working upside down because this is the top. And this is the point. Look for that empty space in the point and do three Double Crow, Shays one to three and one chain. And then in that same point, three more one to three. One chain to separate the groups and finish off this end one to three. One. Chain one to three. Double Crow Shay's one chain and again, one to three. Double Crow, Shay's one chain. And then this is the top. So we do four Double crow Shays in that last stitch. One to three. 123 and four. And there we go. So we'll be continuing toe work are four. Double Crow, Shays Chain three, Chain three, Chain three, Chain three, Chain three, Chain three, Chain three, Chain Three chain and four. And then you add your change three. And then three more Double Cochet. So that top has four. And then again, chain three, Chain three, Chain three Chain three misses your point. So you chain and then do three again and then chain three, Chain three. And you just keep going until you get the number of rows that you want. And in the next lesson, we will finish up the project. I'll see you there. 5. Lesson 4: Crocheting Part 2: Welcome back to class. I completed 32 rows and have one more road to go, and I thought we would do it together. And then we'll show you how to end the show by just weaving in the ends. So here's my top with my four double crow Shea. So now I'm going to continue on here by changing 123 because this is my top. I need four Double Crow Shay's. I'm coming right back into that same stitch for two Double Co. Shays three Double Crow, Shay's and four Double Crow Shays and one chain between every grouping. And now I can continue on with my three double crow chase, and I always just want to go in those empty spots. I've got a lot of the now one to three and a chain between one oops to three and the chain between one to three and one, chain one to three and a chain going to speed this up a little bit until we get down to the point. - Okay , here we are at the tip off the bottom, so we'll do this one together. There's are opening and we do three Double Crow. Shay's one chain and then three. Double Crow Shays. Right back into that hall at the bottom, one to and three and chain. And now we're going. Teoh, continue our three Double crush A Chain three, Double cruciate, Chain three, Double crush A Chain three Double Crow, Shea chain. I'm going to continue this on my own, and you do the same, and then I'll meet you back when we'll finish it off and we've it in. 6. Lesson 5: Crocheting Part 3: Let's finish off the last couple of stitches Double crow, Shea Double Cochet, double Cochet chain. And then we're at the top. So we'll do four Double Crow Shays in that top stitch and our last one and just a chain I used to steins of yarn And this is what I have left Save the balls that you've got left because I have a really fun project that I want to introduce to you in another class. So I'm going to just take about six or eight inches and just weave it in by just pulling through. So that's a bit of a not there. But we want to make sure that this is secure. So I'm just gonna We've it in to a couple of stitches. We'll do one more up here, but I'm gonna pull that through and then give that another little not I really want to secure this, some going to put through and then pull through this little tail just through a different part. And then while I've got ah who pin a tail, I'm gonna tie this together to give it real secure finish. I do four knots and then with scissors could it's close to the last, not as you can. And there you go, 7. Review: thank you for taking this class. I just want to go over a little review of the materials that we used. I used a six millimeter Croce Hook, the J Size, and I used Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarn. This one is called Sunrise. It comes in a lot of beautiful colors. This is a scheme of yarn, and I used to schemes to make the shoal. The show measures almost five feet wide. It's just under five feet wide and two feet long, so it's a big, beautiful shawl. The arms acrylic so washes and dries very well. It will keep its shape and its warm. I hope you enjoyed this class. It was a pleasure to teach if you liked it. Please give the class of thumbs up.
