Crochet Tension: 1 diamond with 4 love knots = approx 3.5 x 3.5 cm

Pattern: The shawl is crochet from bottom up (see diagram 1: chain = A, knot = B).

1st row: crochet 1 ch (= C in diagram).
*Pull the st on needle approx 2.5 cm long, yarn over needle (hook), pull yarn over needle through st, put hook through chain (see diagram 2: chain = D), yarn over needle, pull yarn through chain (= 2 st on needle), yarn over needle, pull yarn over needle through both sts on hook* (from *-* = 1 love knot)
Repeat from *-* 3 times (= 4 knots) and connect them with a dc in the first ch to form a ring.

2nd row: Turn the piece, crochet 3 lk, 1 dc in the 3nd lk from 1st row (crochet dc in B – see diagram 1), crochet 3 lk and 1 dc in the 2nd lk from 1st row (= 2 diamonds on the row)

3rd row: Turn the piece, crochet 1 lk and attach with a dc in the 2nd lk from previous row (ie the last diamond) - you’ve now turned so that you’re ready to continue this row: crochet 3 lk, 1 dc in the top lk in diamond from previous row, 2 lk, dc in the top of the next diamond, 3 lk, 1 dc in the 1st lk in diamond from previous row (= 3 diamonds on the row)

4th row: Turn the piece, crochet 1 lk and attach with a dc in the 2nd lk in the last diamond from previous row – you’ve now turned so that you’re ready to continue this row: crochet 3 lk, 1 dc in the top lk in diamond from previous row, 2 lk, dc in the top of the next diamond, 2 lk, dc in the top of the next diamond, 3 lk, 1 dc in the 1st lk in diamond from previous row (= 4 diamonds on the row)

Continue like this, turning the piece as explained under 3rd row after each row (crochet 1 lk and attach with a dc in the 2nd lk in the last diamond from previous row), and create an additional diamond in each row. You crochet 3 lk at the beginning and end of a row and 2 lk on the diamonds in between.

When you have crochet 24 rows (or desired length), cut the thread.

Crochet border: Crochet along the 2 sides of the shawl using crochet hook 4.5mm and Vivaldi as follows:
1st row: 1 dc in the outermost st at the top of the shawl, *7 ch, 1 dc between 2 lk (i.e. in the middle of the knot), 7 ch, 1 dc in next lk*, repeat from *-* along the 2 sides. NB! Crochet 2 extra ch in the diamond at the bottom in order the border doesn’t become too tight = 98 ch-loops, turn the piece
2nd row: Crochet slip stitches to the mid of the first ch-loop, *7 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* and turn the piece – NB! Crochet an extra ch-loop in the diamond at the bottom in order the border doesn’t become too tight = 98 ch-loops, turn the piece
3rd row: Crochet as 2nd row
4th row: *4 ch, pull the st on hook approx 1-1.5 cm, pull st through a bead, put hook through the st again, yarn over hook, pull yo through st, 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 7 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop, 7 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop*, repeat from *-* and finish with a ch-loop with a bead.
