Shamrock Shawl






I found this beautiful stitch on MyPicot.com and I thought it would make a lovely shawl. I've adjusted the stitch somewhat to make it work for my purposes.  Enjoy!

Materials
  • Red Heart Shimmer Yarn , 4 skeins Peacock and 1 skein Turquoise
  • H Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry needle

Gauge

1 Shamrock is 2 3/4 inches wide and 2 1/4 inches tall.  4 rows are 6 inches tall.

Abbreviations
Ch(s)--chain(s)             Sc(s)--single crochet(s)           sl st--slip stitch        beg--beginning
hdc(s)--half double crochet       dc(s)--double crochet(s)       * *--repeat instructions between asterisks      

Shawl

Ch 9.
Row 1; Sc in 2nd  ch from hook and in next 6 chs, ch 12, sl st in 5th ch from hook to form a loop,

 *ch 5, sc in loop formed by sl st* 3 times to form 3 loops (they will form the lobes of the shamrock), turn



do a sc, hdc and 2 dcs in loop, sl st in beg sc



do 5 dcs, hdc and sc in same loop

do *sc, hdc, 7 dcs, hdc, sc* in next 2 loops

do 6 scs over the stem ch (you may have to slide the scs over the ch)

sc in last ch. (1 shamrock)

Now you will start to increase.

Row 2:  Ch 7, dc in 2nd dc (4th st) on 3rd loop, Ch 7, dc in 5th dc on 3rd loop, ch 5, dc in 2nd dc on middle loop, ch 7. Turn.

(I know these next few pictures are in the wrong color, keep using your main color, in my case Peacock)


Row 3:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 6 sts, ch 12, sl st in 5th ch from hook to form a loop, *ch 5, sc in loop formed by sl st* 3 times to form 3 loops, turn, do (sc, hdc and 2 dcs) in 1st loop, sl st in beg sc, do (5 dcs, hdc and sc) in same loop, do *sc, hdc, 7 dcs, hdc, sc* in next 2 loops, do 6 scs over stem ch, sc in next ch.

Sc in next 7 sts, ch 12, sl st in 5th ch from hook to form a loop, *ch 5, sc in loop formed by sl st* 3 times to form 3 loops, turn, do (sc, hdc and 2 dcs) in 1st loop, sl st in sc just after the stem of the previous shamrock



do (5 dcs, hdc, sc) in same loop. do (sc, hdc, dc) in 2nd loop, sl st in the 3rd st (1st dc) on the lobe of the previous shamrock




do (6 dcs, hdc, sc) in same loop, (sc, hdc, 7 dcs, hdc, sc) in last loop, do 6 scs over stem ch, sc in next ch. (2 shamrocks)
