Pattern Info - Jaali Crocheted Shawl Variations

‘Jaali’ is Hindi for ‘Mesh’. The word has various applications including architecture, textiles, utensils etc. If you are not already aware, I am completely multicractual. I always try and learn new techniques and ways to express my creativity and imagination. Most of my designs ideas come randomly to me, while working on something completely unrelated. In this case however I wanted to create a crocheted version of my first knitted shawl design. The motif and idea of the body pattern are very close to my original knitted version. Take a look below for more details.

Here are my original triangle kerchief samples for the design.

Full scale triangular versions by Pixie56.

Merripurdy also made the triangular version but she improvised on the motif portion at the edge. She made it so that each motif in the second repeat falls between two motifs from the first repeat.

Trapezoidal versions from Madinina

By Bizyhands

& By Amerz

Full square version from LinteeBean
