The Traveling Vine Crochet Shawl

Sharing is caring!

This year my husband and I celebrated our 10th anniversary by traveling a bit of Europe. It was a trip of a lifetime, but like a real crochet addict, I had to take some yarn for this The Traveling Vine Crochet Shawl.

Unfortunately for me, I didn’t bring enough yarn and ran out before I could finish my project.

But not to worry, I have an amazing husband who was willing to help me find some yarn shops along the way. We stopped at a cute little shop in Valencia, Spain and this is where I choose the colorful yarn for this project.

Of course, I still wanted you to see the version with the Olive & Two Ewe yarn so that is also included in this post.

And if you prefer your knitting needles, check out the Traveling Vine Knit Shawl Pattern.

The Traveling Vine Crochet Shawl Notes:

• Any yarn weight can be substituted for this shawl because of the repeat style. It will change sizing slightly, however for a shawl that’s fun to experiment with.

  • Traveling Vine wrap will be created in a crescent shape by increasing on one side until the desired depth is achieved and then decreasing to the opposite side.
  • Ch 1 at the beginning of rows does not count as a stitch.
  • Some rounds will increase in stitch count due to floating stitches and then decrease again on the next round.
  • If the cables pull in too much and the fabric does not lay flat, simply add one yarn over to each floating stitch.
  • If the cables are too loose, take away one yarn over from each floating stitch.
  • Cleaner cables are achieved by working the post stitch into (through) post stitches by grabbing two strands of the stitch instead of working around the entire stitch.

Special Stitches:

The vine shawl is a first-ever seen of it’s kind. Just like the many species of newly discovered plants, we can discover new ways to transform our yarn. While I’m still working on my green thumb as an aspiring gardener, for now, I find the vines in crochet are longer lasting.

Closing Curve (CC) – Counts as 1 sc stitch and no floating stitchesSk3fs, FFDC around 4th floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 3rd skipped floating st stopping with 2 loops on the hook, FFDC around 5th floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 2nd skipped floating st stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 6thfloating st. stopping with 2 loops on hook, FFDC around 1st floating st. stopping with 2 loops on hook, insert hook into next sc and pull up a loop, yo and pull through all loops on hook.
Front Float 3 Double Crochet (FF3DC)Yo, insert hook from front-to back-to-front around post of indicated st (or next available floating st, if no st is indicated) and pull up a loop, twice. Repeat for next 2 floating stitches.
Front Float 3 Treble Crochet (FF3TR)Yo twice, insert hook from front-to back-to-front around post of indicated st (or next available floating st, if no st is indicated) and pull up a loop, 3 times. Repeat for remaining floating stitch to work a total of two front float stitches next to each other.
Opening Curve (OC) – Counts as 2 sc stitches and 6 floating stitchesSkip 1 stitch, FF3DC around next sc one row below, sc 2, FF3DC around base of FF3DC previously made starting with the top floating stitch down.
Right Cross (RC) – Counts as 2 sc stitches and 6 floating stitchesSk3fs, FF3TR around next 3 floating stitches, sc 2, working over previously make floating stitches FF3TR.
