    Instructions:

    Note: I worked each color for two rows.  If you are unfamiliar with switching colors, check out the video!
    Ch 4, then in the ch furthest from the hook sl st to form ring.

    Row 1: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), the work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in center of ring, the work (ch 1, dc) in the ring.

    Row 2: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), the work 2 dc in the ch 1 space from the previous row, then ch 1. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the ch 2 space (top corner peak) from the previous row, then ch 1. Work 2 dc, ch 1 in the ch 1 space from the previous row, then a dc in the third ch of the turning chain.

    Row 3: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1), then work 2 dc, ch 1 in the ch 1 space. Work 3 dc, ch 1 in the chain 1 space. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the chain 2 space (top corner peak). Ch 1, then 3 dc in the ch 1 space, then ch 1, then 2 dc in the ch 1 space, then ch 1, then a dc in the last dc.

    Row 4: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1). Work 2 dc in the ch 1 space, then work (3 dc, ch 1) in each of the the next ch 1 spaces, then ch 1. Work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in the ch 2 space (top corner peak), then work (ch 1, 3 dc) in each of the next ch spaces, then ch 1. Work 2 dc in the last ch space, ch 1, then a dc in the last dc.

    Repeat row 4, adding a (3-dc in a ch- 1 sp) on each side for each row until triangle is about 65 inches across top edge, or desired size.  Please note I used every bit of the three skeins including tassels. You can add more repeats of row 4 if you'd like a larger shawl or less rows for a smaller shawlette.   

    Tassels (Make 3:): Using matching yarn, cut two strands of yarn per tassel roughly 9-12 inches long.  Set aside.  With the same yarn, wrap yarn around all four of your fingers 20 times.  Tie the first strand to the top loops of the bundle.  Tie second strand around the bundle to the upper third of the tassel.  Cut any loops on the bottom of the tassel and trim bottom straight.  Tie one to each corner of the triangle.


    Finishing:
    Weave in ends and your shawl is finished!
