As you may have guessed, I’m a bit of a yarn hoarder. And since I’ve been having issues with nerve pain in my hands, I’ve been focusing most of my crochet time on super quick projects, like baby hats and chunky yarn projects.

But since this is my birthday month, I decided it was time to make something for ME. And I found a lovely skein of merino silk blend fingering weight yarn in my March KnitCrate that was absolutely perfect! I rarely get the chance to use fingering weight yarn, so I wanted to make something I could wear year round here in Florida. Don’t you love how beachy and open this shawl is? It’s so soft and flowy that I want to wear it everywhere!
This is also a part of the Design Create Repeat Collab,which is themed Light and Flowy for April! Check out Melanie’s Caitlin Desert Top pattern here!
I chose to use the Solomon’s Knot stitch, because it’s so airy and lacy. Plus it let me finish the entire shawl with just one skein of yarn! This shawl pattern is perfect for stash busting, and gifting. I love that I can wear it as a shawl, scarf, or wrap, too! I still need to find a good shawl pin for it, though.
H/8 5.0mm Crochet Hook- I tried the Addi Swing and it really helped my hands!

Sol K -Solomon’s Knot
Solomon’s Knot: lengthen the loop on your hook to desired length, yarn over and pull the loop through, insert hook into the tall loops, yarn over and pull up another loop, yarn over and pull through both loops on hook.
Gauge / Finished Size
Each Solomon’s knot should be 1” in length.
Finished pattern is 2 Solomon’s Knots and 3 rows in 2” square.
Shawl is worked flat in turned rows. I worked my shawl in wide rows, but I’ve included instructions for short rows in parentheses. The finished look would be the same either way.
Row 1: Ch 2, work 72 (28) Sol K,
Row 2: Turn, work 3 Sol K, skip those 3 Sol K and the last Sol K from previous row and sc in 4th st, *2 Sol K, sk 2, sc in next,* repeat * to * across.
Rows 3 on: repeat Row 2 until shawl reaches desired length or width.
Finish off and weave in ends.
