Un Deux Trois Shawl
At this point I am still working on a second shawl – pattern will be provided shortly.The shawl is named the Un Deux Trois as it’s made in three stages and because I adore the cakes with the three tiers in different colours and slants.
Un is the alternating shells, Deux is the FPDCs andTrois is the Half crescent border.
This shawl is designed for a Fingering weight yarn – I have used 12 balls of Yarntreehouse’s Melody which is the same yarn as Jojolands’ Melody. Any fingering weight yarn could be used, and I used 2440 metres.
There is no guage requirement and I used a 3.5 ( E) hook. This pattern is in US terminology – yes I know I’m Australian but the US terminology makes more sense.
This is a yarn eater because of the the Deux stage – the alternating Half Double crochet / Front Post Double Crochets- takes a lot of yarn.This gives the shawl a lovely weight and drape around you.This pattern is copyright to myself – you may not sell it or reproduce it by any means (paper or ecopy) without my express permission.

Un – this section is the triangular body of the shawl. The repeats are worked over nine stitches, with an extra 6 for the points (will become clear shortly) and a turning chain of 3.
