Crochet gauge: width of 6 diamonds x height of 10 diamonds = 10 x 10 cm [4’’ x 4’’].

Pattern: See diagrams M.1-M.4 and Fig 1 and Fig 2.

Crochet info 1: In diamonds crochet dc in ch-loop. In rose pattern crochet as shown in Fig. 2.

Crochet info 2: Replace the last dc on each row with 1 tr (see Fig. 1). Do this to make sure the edge round the shawl doesn’t become too tight. If it is still too tight, replace 1 dc with a dtr.

Tip: Press the shawl before use for best result.

Crochet from point mid back and up. Crochet 14 ch on crochet hook size 3 mm [US C] and form a ring with a sl st in the first ch = Row 1 (see Fig 1). Continue from start arrow in Fig. 1. After the last row in Fig. 1 repeat the inc each side (= X) until finished measurements. At the same time on row 18 beg the rose pattern. Beg with chart M.1 in the first diamond inside the full diamond along the outer edge (see arrow at the bottom of M.1 and Fig. 2). At the same time on row 42 beg chart M.2 and M.3 at the sides. M.2 begins in the first diamond inside the full diamond at the right side and M.3 begins in diamond no 38 on the same row. After the pattern is complete there are a total of 83 diamonds on row. Continue inc according to Fig. 1 for another 6 rows = 91 diamonds on row. Now crochet 1 row with dc in dc and ch over ch and then 1 vertical repeat of chart M.4. Finish with 1 row with dc in dc and ch over ch.

Crochet border: Crochet round the whole shawl from the top on the right side, down towards the point and up along the left side as follows:
Row 1: 1 sc in the first ch-loop, 4 ch (= 1 tr), 3 tr in the same ch-loop, 1 ch, *4 tr in next ch-loop, 1 ch*, repeat from *-* and finish with 4 tr and 1 sl st in the last ch-loop.
Row 2: 4 ch (= 1 tr), 2 tr in the first ch-loop from previous row, 4 ch, 3 tr in the same ch-loop, *3 tr in the next ch-loop, 4 ch, 3 tr in the same ch-loop*, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in the last ch-loop.

US english explanation to pattern diagram:

34 rader/varv = 34 rows
1. rad fra høyre = first row from the right

22 rader/varv = 22 rows


dc-group = 3 dc in the same st
sl st
1 dc, 4 ch, 1 dc
1 dc, 4 ch, 1 dc, 4 ch, 1 dc
2 dc, dc-group (see explanation), 2 dc
This is how the shawl is crocheted - Repeat X
