Triangle Snapdragon Shawl

Tish Hoar. 2008 All rights reserved.

This pattern is an easy to intermediate pattern.
N hook.
2 skeins of 7 oz. Red Heart super saver yarn (728 yds- some do end up using 3 skeins)
one safety pin or stitch marker that you can move every other row or so.

Stitches:
v-stitch Dc, chain 1, Dc
shell stitch- 5 Dc
middle shell stitch 7 Dc

Note: put safety pin in middle shell. Doing this every 3 or so (whatever makes you comfortable) rows so you know when the middle shell is coming up is easier. After I started doing this. I had to frog less often.
Keep track of starting and ending stitches. the chain 4 always counts as one dc and one chain one. The dc in turning chain after completes a v stitch for the beginning. to end rows, it should always have a v stitch to end with. The stitches always goes up to the middle shell then repeats backwards for a mirror image of shawl, in a way of a pattern. After row 20, a repeat of 3 different rows will continue to the end.
