Up in "General Techniques" a new member asked about the pattern shown in this link:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/68697355/dreamy-wrap-hand-knit-mohair-lace

Even though the Etsy seller calls it "hand knit" I think it might be crochet. I know nothing about crocheting other than which end of the hook to hold, but looking at the Harmony guide to crochet stitches, I thought it looked like Solomon's Knot.

What do crocheters think?

It looks incredibly like "Horai" shawl I just fell in love with over on Ravelry.

Yes but it does look knit to me, because I've knit a similar pattern to it. I'm also a long time crocheter. The way it's done is with big needles, somewhere around size 13, and it's got a lot of YO repeats, I'm pretty sure of this.

Horai is gorgeous! Thanks for the link.

PS. Look at the edge of both.

The Horai pattern is knitted. It appears here in "Random crochet-related chitchat" because I thought the original might be a crochet pattern. LJ identified it and answered here, because that's where I posted the question.

Sorry for the confusion.

Thanks Flicka for your detective work.
I love the stitch, but the shawl looks unfinished.MOP. I would have a border for this stitch. Three to five stitches along the length.

It is definitely not the Solomon's love-knot stitch. I have made shawls using this stitch and I am currently finishing up another one.

I posted this a while back in the patterns section, but take a look at this. It looks VERY similar.

Thanks, Margaret for the link. I have some mohair in my stash and would like to knit something like that. You saved me from searching through all my stitch dictionaries. Cathy
