SHAWL

Crochet Tension: 1 diamond with 4 love knots = approx 6 x 6 cm

Measurements: Top width approx 200 cm, length mid back approx 100 cm

Abbreviations: st = stitch, ch = chain stitch; sl st = slip stitch; dc = double crochet; tr = treble crochet; lk = love knot

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 4.5 cm long, yarn over needle, pull yarn over needle through st, put needle 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 needle* (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 26 rows (or desired length), cut the thread.





FLOWER ATTACHMENT

Use crochet hook no 6. Crochet 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st.

1st round: 1 dc in the ring *3 ch, 1 dc in ring*, repeat from *-* a total of 2 times and finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in the first dc from beginning of round = 3 ch-loops

2nd round: 1 ch and crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 1 sl st, 5 tr, 1 sl st. Turn the piece and crochet next round from the back.

3rd round: 1 ch, 1 dc round dc from first round. *3 ch, 1 dc at the foot of the 3rd tr from 2nd round (i.e. in the middle of the leaf’s lower edge), 3 ch, 1 dc round next dc from first round*, repeat from *-* until there are 5 ch-loops. Finish with 3 ch and 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round = 6 ch-loops. Turn the piece and crochet last round from the front.

4th row: 1 ch and crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 1 sl st, 3 tr, 1 sl st. Finish with 1 sl st in first ch from beg of round.

Cut and fasten ends and sew a safety pin at the back of flower.

I really love this shawl - so beautiful colour....Hope I will be able to make it some day..

Norunn 15.07.2013 - 00:20:

Holder på med dette nå, og jeg tror at sjalet på bildet er heklet med noe annet enn "Eskimo".. Det blir nok fint, men tipper at det ikke er ull som er brukt på sjalet som er avbildet..

Jag hade inte virkat på säkert 10 år när en kompis visade mig det här mönstret. Det gick jättebra och blev kanonfint! Det växer snabbt och har man väl lärt sig kärleksknuten så flyter det på hur snabbt som helst.
