Gold Shimmer Shawl

This shawl has a soft gold shimmer, catching the light every way you turn. You will be sure to receive compliments from this half-hexagonal shawl. 
I used three skeins of Vanna's Glamour in Topaz with a G hook. 
Ch 6, join with sl st to form ring
Row 1: ch 4 (counts as dc, ch1), (3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1) in loop, dc in loop
Row 2: ch4 (counts as dc, ch1), turn, 2dc in ch 1 sp, *sk next dc, dc in next dc, sk next dc, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in ch 2 sp; rep from * across once more, sk next dc,dc in next dc, sk next dc, 2dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1, dc in last dc
Row 3: ch4 (counts as dc, ch1), turn, 2dc in ch 1 sp, *sk next dc, dc in each dc until last dc before ch 2 sp, sk next dc, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in ch 2 sp; rep from * across once more, sk next dc, dc in each dc until last dc before ch 2 sp, 2 dc in ch 1 sp, ch1, dc in last dc

Repeat row 3 until shawl is desired size. I repeated row 3 35 more times. If you repeat it a different amount of times, you may have to play around with the edging, and fudge it a bit. 
For the edging: 
Shell: 2dc, ch2, 2dc 
Row 1: ch3 (counts as dc), turn, shell in ch 1 sp, (sk next 3 dc, *shell in next dc, sk 4 dc; rep from * across to last 3 dc before corner ch 2 sp, sk next 3 dc, shell, ch1, shell in ch 2 sp), rep from ( to ) once more, sk next 3 dc, rep from * across to last 3 dc before ch 1 sp, sk next 3 dc, shell in ch 1 sp, dc in last dc
Row 2: ch3, turn, shell in every ch 2 or ch 1 sp across, dc in last dc

Fasten off, and weave in any remaing ends. 
The finished shawl is 50" across the top, and 18" from the top to the bottom. 
I just love this soft color! So neutral, and will match so much!
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa
