Pamela's Lattice Prayer Shawl

This pattern is very simple and quick, since half of it's chaining. It only took me three days of dedicated work. I used Lion Brand's 'Pound of Love' baby yarn, and used about half the skein.

H hook
G hook

United States terminology.
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
dbc - double crochet

  1. Using the H hook, ch 36 or another uneven multiple of three. ch 2, turn.
  2. Dbc in third ch from hook and next two stitches. *ch 3, skip next 3 sts, 1 dbc in each of next three sts.* Continue from * to * to the end of the row. You should end up with 3 dbc at each end of the row, forming a solid border at each side of the shawl. 
  3. Repeat step two until the shawl has reached your desired length. After the first row, dbcs should only ever be in dbcs, never in the chains. 
  4. Using the G hook, sc around the edges of the shawl.
  5. Fasten off and weave in ends.
