Coral Fringe Triangular Shawl
This easy mesh stitch is crocheted into a triangle, to make a lovely shawl. Knotted fringe is then added, to continue with the diamond shapes of the mesh. This is a nice shawl for spring because of the color and open stitch, but is also warm enough for winter.
Ch 8, dc in 1st ch
Row 1: ch 8, (counts as dc, ch 5), turn, sc in 3rd ch, ch 5, sk 2 ch, dc in next ch
Row 2: ch 8, (counts as dc, ch 5), turn, sc in ch 5 lp, ch 5, sc in next ch 5 lp, ch 5, dc in 3rd ch of beg ch 8 from previous row
Row 3: ch 8, turn, (counts as dc, ch 5), *sc in ch 5 lp, ch 5; rep from * to end across to last ch 5 lp, dc in 3rd ch of beg ch 8 from previous row
Rep row 3 until your shawl is the desired size. Without cutting yarn, sc around the two side edges of the the triangle. I fit 3 sc in each dc space, and 9 ch in the center beginning loop. Fasten off and weave in ends.
To attach the fringe, cut 10" lengths of yarn. With a crochet hook, knot two pieces onto every third sc. One you have done that all the way around, knot two pieces from one clump with two pieces from the next one. Then repeat this step again so you have another row of knots. This will make this diamond pattern.
Hopefully this picture will show you how to knot the fringe. My finished shawl is 23" deep and 80" across the top, not including fringe.
