Coral Semi-Hexagon Shawl

This semi-hexagon shawl is a great variation from the typical triangle! I love this shape with the pretty lace edging. 
I used about 1 1/2 skeins of Patons Lace in Calypso Coral with a G hook. 
Ch 6, join with sl st to form ring. 
Row 1: ch 4, (counts as dc, ch 1), (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 1, dc) in ring
Row 2: ch 4, (counts as dc, ch 1), turn, 2 dc in ch 1 sp, sk next dc, dc in next dc, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch 2 sp, sk next dc, dc in next dc, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch 2 sp, sk next dc, dc in next dc, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 1, dc) in ch 1 sp
Row 3: ch 4, (counts as dc, ch 1), turn, 2 dc in ch 1 sp, sk next dc, dc in each st until last st before ch 2 sp, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch 2 sp, sk next dc, dc in each st until last st before ch 2 sp, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in ch 2 sp, sk next dc, dc in each st until last st before ch 1 sp, sk next dc, (2 dc, ch 1, dc) in ch 1 sp

Edging: 
* count every ch as a st as well
You may have to fudge this a little bit to get it to work, which is fine. I made sure that there was a ch 5 loop over each ch 2 sp. 
Row 1: ch 1, turn, dc in 1st dc, (ch 5, sk 3 sts, sc in next dc) rep (to) to end of row
Row 2: ch 5, turn, sc in ch 5 sp, *9 dc in next ch 5 sp, (sc in next ch 5 sp, ch 5) twice, sc in next ch 5 sp; rep from * to end across, 9 dc in ch 5 sp, sc in next ch 5 sp, ch 2, dc in sc
Row 3: ch 1, dc in dc, *(dc, ch 1) in each of first 8 dc, dc in next dc, sc in ch 5 sp, ch 5, sc in next ch 5 sp; rep from * to end across, (dc, ch 1) in each of first 8 dc, dc in next dc, dc in 4th ch of starting ch 5
Row 4: ch 1, sc in sc, *(sc in dc st and ch 1 sp) 8 times, dc in next dc, sk next sc, 5 sc in ch 5 sp, sk next sc; rep from * to end across, (sc in dc st and ch 1 sp) 8 times, sc in next dc, sc in last dc 

Fasten off, and weave in any remaining ends. 
This coral color is my favorite! My finished shawl is 22" deep and 72" across the top. 
Here is a photo of the shawl laid out. It makes a half-hexagon, or a trapezoid, depending on how you decide to see it. 
I hope you enjoy this pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa

  2. Thank you! When you said it was a different type of shawl, I was very intrigued. This is awesome. I do a lot of wraps for the local nursing home and this would be just perfect for them. Thank you again.

  4. What is the repeat for the body of the shawl? The shape is so smart. I bet it helps the shawl stay in place. Thank you for the pattern.

    1. The body of the shawl is just row 2 repeated, until you would like to start the edging.

  5. Is it row two repeated or row three? Not clear in the pattern instructions. I've put my work down and now cannot recall if I need to do row 2 or 3 to resume!!! Help!!

    1. The body repeat is just row 3. I just realized that I told the commenter above that it was row 2!

    1. I would recommend about 40 rows, more or less depending on the yarn you use and how big you want the shawl.
