Hello Everyone,

Has anyone tried the following pattern?
http://www.free-croc...C01214&cat_id=1

One of the pattern stitches calls for a 1/2 knot stitch. I can't find this stitch anywhere online. I see different knot stitches, but not "1/2 knot stitch". I'm wondering if I just following directions for any normal knot stitch? or is this one different. The directions to make this stitch are a little confusing to me. The picture seems a little misleading too. Do you think this shawl has a lacy look to it? I've attempted to start this pattern and it seems a bit more lacy look than what is pictured. I've been asked to make two of these shawls for girls that sing in the Scrooge play every year. I hope I can get this right. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
Sarah

The patern tells how to make he stitch, At the beginning under pattern stiches. It is one "leg" of solomons or lovers knot. Were you loking for a visual reference on how to make it?

The clearest instructions i can think of are in the Harmony Guides to Crochet.

It is a very open stitch, i don't think it would look much like that photo.

Good explanation video here http://www.nexstitch...omons_knot.html

Holding the back thread is essential.

Thanks so much for your help. I saw the solomon knot stitch and started working the shoulderette with that. The visual helped a lot. Wasn't sure that was the same as the 1/2 knot stitch. Thanks again. You're a lifesaver.
