Good morning! This shawl is named after my paternal grandmother, Coletta LeGrand. She taught me the stitch which she called "Lark's Head". I have seen this stitch in several places with other names. But for me, it will always be the Lark's Head.
Pattern Stitch = multiple of 4 sts + 1
Each color is worked for 2 rows. This pattern lends itself very nicely to 3 colors or using up scraps.
Begin with 2 foundation rows.
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook and in next ch, * ch 1, skip 1 ch, dc in next 3 chs. Repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: dc in next 2 dc, *ch 1, sk 1 dc, dc in next 3 dc, repeat from * across. Ch 4, turn.
Row 3: Change color. sk next dc, * dc in next dc, work a long dc in next ch 1 space 2 rows below, dc in next dc, ch 1, skip next dc, repeat from * across ending with last dc in the 3rd ch of the turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Row 4: *dc in next 3 dc, ch 1, skip next dc, repeat from * across ending with last dc in 3rd ch of turning ch. Ch 3, turn.
Row 5: Change color. *work a long dc, dc in next dc, ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc, repeat from * across. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat rows 2 - 5 to desired length.
Repeat rows 1 and 2, fasten off.
