The Solomon’s Knot Shawl is definitely my most popular pattern. There aren’t that many patterns out there that use this stitch, but it’s a shame… the Solomon’s Knot stitch (aka True Lover’s Knot Stitch, Hail Stone Stitch, or Love Knot Stitch) is beautiful and a great way to show off special yarn.

More pictures here.

You Will Need:
Lion Brand Incredible Ribbon Yarn (2 balls)
OR the yarn of your choice (use appropriate hook)
Size H/8 hook (5.00mm)

SK = Solomon’s Knot
sk = skip

Click here to learn how to make the SK. They call it a love knot, but it’s the same thing.
Or click this one for a different site’s take on it.

Foundation: Ch 1. Make 22 SK, each 2.75 inches long. Make 2 SK, each 2
inches long.

Note: From now on, make each SK 2 inches long.

Row 1: Sc in 3rd SK from hook.
(Make 2 SK, sc in next st) 21 times.
Turn.

Row 2: Be careful that you don’t twist your work during this row!
Make 1 SK. Sc into first st.
(Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) 21 times.

Note: The skipped stitch is the sc from the previous row. From now on, you will always crochet into a SK stitch, not a sc.
Turn.

Row 3: Make 1 SK. Sc into first SK.
(Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) 20 times.
Turn.

Row 4: Make 1 SK. Sc into first SK.
(Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) 19 times.
Turn.

Row 5: Make 1 SK. Sc into first sk.
(Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) 18 times.
Turn.

Row 6: Make 1 SK. Sc into first sk.
(Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) 17 times.
Turn.

Rows 7-22: Follow the pattern established above.
On Row 22, you should only (Make 2 SK, sk 1 st. Sc in next st) once.
Turn.

Finish: Make 1 SK. Sc into first SK (the point of the shawl).
Finish off.

Cut pieces of yarn for fringe. Choose how long you want it to be, and how
many pieces you want per knot. Attach fringe to each knot on the bottom two edges of the shawl, pulling the beginning and ending “tails” into the fringe to hide them.

If you use this pattern to make a shawl, please post a link to your blog entry or your photo in the comments. I’d love to see it!

I would really like to use this pattern for a wedding veil. Could I possibly use a modified version of your pattern for profit?

I would really like to know the sharing program you are using. I have been trying to find one that included Pinterest. I would appreciate a reply. Thanks.

Just wondering what the finished dimensions of this are?

Also, when it says 2 inches for the loop, does that mean 2 inches from the base to the hook (ie a 4 inch circle) or 1 inch each direction ( ie a 2 inch circle)

Thanks

I made your shawl and added beaded flowers to the edge. I’m loving it!

back in the early when i was 46 yrs younger, i made lace edgings on handerchiefs for sale while i ran a double cord switchboard pair. I have not done them in a while but have never used anything larger than tating thread. i am happy it is still beinh used to dAY AND I BELIEVE THAT IF THE STITCH WERE A BIT SHORTER IT WOULD BE SAFE TO PUT ON BABY ITEMS. YHEY NEED THAT LOVE ALSO. THANKS FOR PUTTING THIS WHERE I COULD FIND IT. FLO

The stitch brings back memories. One year I made my mom and sisters lover’s knot shawls out of a yarn that had a irridessent shimmer to it. I like the effect with ribbon. Very pretty.

I'm trying to make this shawl as bridesmaids' gift for my daughter's wedding. It was a last-minute idea because my daughter found a beautiful shawl for sale on Etsy, some crafty Ebay-type website where people sell their wares. I'm having a heck of a time. I wanted to attach the photo of my progress because it just doesn't look like your stitches AT ALL and I NEED HELP QUICKLY. Is there any way I can send a photo so you can tell me what I'm doing wrong? PLEASE HELP!!!

Please help me: This might sound like a dumb question, but when it says “sc in next stitch” does it mean the loopy part of the know or the sc between? I'd be so happy if anyone could reply.

Hi there! A customer of mine recently turned me on to this shawl. Do you think I could add it to my website with full links back to everything you do here? I would even be willing to send you some free yarn for the privileged. If you'd like to see pictures of her creation (made from my Desert Caravan recycled sari ribbon) just email me. It is breathtaking and wouldn't have been possible without your craftiness!

Thank you for posting this- it helped me nail the materials for an upcoming art installation. I found the image on flickr as part of an image search for the stich. I hope you don’t mind- I used your image in my art blog (http://marycoreymarch.wordpress.com). I credited you- let me know if that’s okay.

I’m still fussy on this in net-form, getting the dimensions I want, but the yarn store should be able to sort me out.

Thanks so much and I love your blog!

Oh no! I didn’t realize that the Annie’s Attic link didn’t work anymore… the other site is still a good reference, and if you study the pictures (including the drawings) you should be able to get it. Maybe I’ll write up a solomon’s knot tutorial later though.

Hi! I can’t get help from Annie’s Attic to make a Solomon’s knot. I want to show my 2 nieces how to do this on Sunday. Not sure if the other pix will be enough. Got other sites I can check? I am a new crocheter and I’m trying to get my teen nieces interested. I got some Incredible ribbon yarn
for $1.00 each and I am ready to go! :)
Thanks for any help.

Michelle Bello ;)
Bethlehem, Pa. XOXOXO to all critters!!!

Hi Michelle,

Are you still in Bethlehem? I’m in Easton… always looking for fellow crocheters in my area. Was thinking of starting a club here in LV. Let me know if you think you’d be interested, if still local, or in just swapping some crochet patterns. :00

Congratulations, Irene! I look forward to seeing a picture of your shawl in five years, when the baby is in kindergarten.
hehe.




Irene (6 comments)

I will, eventually. But don’t hold your breath: my baby is due in 2 weeks, I’m trying to prepare the baby’s stuff and to finish all kinds of projects before that, and then the baby comes and it will be “I’m so sleepy!!” all the time, so I probably won’t be doing any crocheting for quite a while.

But sooner or later – I’ll get to it!




admin (152 comments)

Oh man, Irene. I’m crazy-jealous!
Enjoy the sale. :) When you make the shawl, please link to your pictures. I’d love to see!

Thanks!!! A local yarn store is going out of business (sniff, sniff) and they had a great discount on a beautiful ribbon yarn. I wanted the yarn, but couldn’t figure out out to do with it. Now I know!!! Thanks again!!!
