Half Lace Shawl

So, I've designed yet another shawl and this one is my favorite so far.  I've thought of this as a half and half shawl: half lace, half solid.  It is just like the Lacy Shawl except that half of the rows are filled in with dc.  It is not as warm as the Cozy Shawl, nor is it as open as the Lacy Shawl.  It is comfortably in between. 

Here's the pattern:
Chain 2
Row 1: 3 sc in 2nd chain from the hook (3 sc)
Row 2: ch 1, turn, 2 sc in first sc, sc, 2 sc in last sc (5 sc)

Edging:
Row 1: ch 1, do not turn, 2 sc in corner, sc, 3 sc in point, sc, 2 sc in corner (9 sc)
Row 2: ch 3, turn, 2 dc in corner, ch 3, sk 3, (dc, ch 3, dc) in point, ch 3, sk 3, 3 dc in corner
Row 3: ch 3, turn, 2 dc in corner, (dc in dc, 3 dc in ch 3 space) to point, 7 dc in point, (dc in dc, 3 dc in ch 3 space) to corner, 3 dc in corner
Row 4: ch 3 turn, 2 dc in corner, (ch 3, sk 3, dc) to point (dc, ch 3, dc) in point, (ch 3, sk 3, dc) to corner, 3 dc in corner

Rows 5-26: repeat rows 3 and 4 (11 times)

Row 27: ch 3, turn, 2 dc in corner, dc, 4 dc in next dc, sc in dc, (7 dc in dc, sc in dc) to point, 7 dc in point,  sc in dc, (7 dc in dc, sc in dc) to last 3 dc, 4 dc in next dc, dc, 3 dc in corner

Finishing: ch 1, turn, sc across the top, slip stitch, fasten off, weave in ends.

I made this using Simply Soft Dark Pine and a J hook.

  5. Is there supposed to be something more after Row 2 or does it go straight to the edging?

    1. It does go straight to the edging. Essentially you're just making the first triangle the rest of the shawl will be built around.

  6. umm I see this was post june of last year but I must be missing something it gives the first 2 rows and jumps right to the edgeing so I would like to know where is the rest of the pattern unless I am missing looking somewhere there is no rest of the pattern after 1 and 2 rows

    1. The pattern does have just 2 rows, and then the edging. The two rows, then the first row of the edging makes the initial triangle that the rest of the pattern is built off of.

    I too am having trouble with row 2 jumping to the edging. I think it would help is I had a visual tutorial. I hope to show this to my crochet group once I figure out the pattern. I hope you can help me with this.

    1. So what you do is make the first triangle with rows 1 and 2. Then you are going to add the edging to the non-hypotenuse sides of the right-triangle. Then you turn, and do the next round of the edging, and so on. The shawl is almost entirely edging.

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern. I fell in love with it first because of the color. Then because of the pattern itself. I am almost through with my second shawl. I love this pattern. It is everything I was looking for when I found it. The first shawl I made using LION BRAND SHAWL IN A BAWL. It is a brand new sized yarn to complete a shawl. It was perfect for this pattern. The second I am using Caron Simply Soft Snow Camo. It too, has worked up beautiful. Again Thank You. <
