Now that we're all up to speed, let's jump right into our shawl, shall we?


The finished shawl in the pictures measures 23 inches wide and 86 inches long.  If you would like to adjust the size of the shawl, use the stitch multiple below to adjust the width.  For length, simple work more or less rows of the pattern.

Ch 92 (Multiple of 10+2)

Row 1: Work a dc into the third chain from the hook, then work a dc in each of next 4 chains, *skip the next 2 chains, then dc in each of next 4 chains, chain 2, work a dc in each of next 4 chains *, repeat from * until there are 6 chains left.  Skip the next 2 chains, then work a dc in each of next 3 chains, 2 dc in last chain.

Row 2: Ch 3 (counts as the first dc) and turn your work.  Then work a dc into the same beginning stitch.  Work a dc in each of next 3 stitches, * skip the next 2 stitches, then work a dc in each of the next 3 stitches.  Work a (dc, ch 2, dc) in next ch 2 space, then a dc in each of next 3 stitches.  Repeat from * across until there are 6 chains left.  Skip the next 2 stitches, then work a dc in each of next 3 stitches, work 2 dc into the topmost chain of the turning chain at the end of the row.

Repeat row 2 your shawl is as long as you like.  The shawl pictured 86 inches long.
