Lunasadh Fires shawl

I've been working on a number of shawl patterns and this one is the first to be finished.  I've had this Elvincraft yarn in my stash for a loooong time and it has been started off as a number of projects but I've never been happy with how the colours worked with the pattern so it was high time I came up with my own pattern.
Lunasadh Fires shawl is made using a 4mm hook and 800m of laceweight yarn.  It's a nice simple pattern, perfect for working on when you need a mindless project that can easily be picked up and put down at a moment's notice. (US terms in pattern)
1. Ch3, 3 hdc in 3rd ch from hook, ch1, 4hdc in same space, turn
2. Ch2, 2 hdc in first, hdc in next 3, in centre ch sp work *hdc, ch1, hdc*, hdc in next 3, 2hdc in top of ch2, turn
3-9: Ch2, 2hdc in first, hdc across to centre ch sp, *hdc, ch1, hdc* in ch sp, hdc across to last st, work 2hdc in last st, turn
10: Ch3 (counts as hdc, ch1), hdc in first (beginning v st made), *ch1, sk1, hdc* across to centre ch sp, work *hdc, ch1, hdc, ch1, hdc* in ch sp, *ch1, sk1, hdc across, in last st work *hdc, ch1, hdc* (v st), turn.
11-24: Work as rows 3-9
25: Repeat row 10

Continue with 14 rows of solid hdc and every 15th row as an eyelet row.  My shawl had 5 eyelet rows and 6 solid hdc sections.  Block as needed.

This pattern would be good to experiment with adding a lace border but I didn't feel that would work with this yarn as it is too busy.

This pattern is for personal use only.  Enjoy :)


  1. This is beautiful! I'm going to try one with worsted weight yarn.

  2. Thankyou, let me know how your project goes :)
