Solomon’s Knot Shawl

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.

You Will Need:
Lion Brand Incredible Ribbon Yarn (2 balls)

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.
