SHAWL
The shawl is made up of 21 squares and 7 half squares crochet as explained below, and crochet together as explained in diagram 1 and diagram 2 (see how to crochet together below).

1 whole square:
Ch 4 with 1 strand of Alpaca and 1 strand of Vivaldi and make a ring with a sl st in 1st ch.
1st round: 3 ch (= 1 dc), crochet 11 dc around the ring and finish with a sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round = 12 dc.
2nd round: *4 ch, 1 dc in the 1st of the ch 4, skip 1 dc, 1 sl st in the next dc*, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with a sl st in the sl st from the end of the previous round = 6 leaves.
3rd round: ch 3, 1 sc in the top of the 1st leaf, *7 ch, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf* repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with a sl st in the sc at the top of the 1st leaf = 6 ch-spaces.
4th round: *4 ch, 1 dc in the 1st of the ch 4, 1 sc around the ch-space, ch 4, 1 dc in the 1st of the ch 4, 1 sc in the sc between the ch-spaces*, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with a sl st in the sl st from the end of the previous round = 12 leaves.
5th round: ch 3,*1 sc in the top of the 1st leaf, ch 7, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf, ch 7, 1 sc in the next leaf, 11 ch*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times and finish with a sl st in the 1st sc from beginning of round = 4 corners with 2 ch-spaces in between.

1 half square:
Ch 4 with 1 strand of Alpaca and 1 strand of Vivaldi and make a ring with a sl st in 1st ch.
1st round: 3 ch (= 1 dc), crochet 11 dc around the ring and finish with a sl st in the 3rd ch from beginning of round = 12 dc.
2nd round: *4 ch, 1 dc in the 1st of the ch 4, skip 1 dc, 1 sl st in the next dc*, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with a sl st in the sl st from the end of the previous round = 6 leafs.
Now crochet rows back and forth instead of rounds.
3rd row: ch 3, 1 sc in the top of the 1st leaf, *7 ch, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf* repeat from *-* a total of 3 times = 3 ch-spaces. Turn the piece.
4th row: *4 ch, 1 dc in the 1st of the ch 4, 1 sc into the sc between the ch-spaces*, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with a sc in the sc from the end of the previous round = 6 leaves. Turn the piece.
5th row: *11 ch, 1 sc in the top of the 1st leaf, ch 7, 1 sc in the top of the next leaf, ch 7, 1 sc in the next leaf*, repeat from *-* 1 time and finish with 11 ch and a sl st into the 1st ch from beginning of previous row = 3 corners with 2 ch-spaces in between.

How to crochet the squares tog:
Crochet 1 whole square (= square 1), crochet 1 more (= square 2), but on the last round crochet square 2 tog. with square 1 as shown in diagram - this means the last round on square 2 is crochet as described under "1 whole square" but in 1 corner ch 5, then a sc into a corner of square 1, 5 ch (instead of 11 ch).
Now crochet square 3, but on the last round crochet square 3 tog. with square 2 and square 1 as follows: ch 5, 1 sc into the corner of square 2, 5 ch. 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 3, 3 ch. 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 2, ch 3, 1 sc around the the next ch-space on square 3, 3 ch. 1 sc into the next ch-space on square 2, 3 ch. 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 3, 5 ch. 1 sc into the sc which holds the corner tog. of square 1 and square 2, 5 ch. 1 sc into the next ch-space on square 3, 3 ch. 1 sc around the next ch space on square 1, ch 3, 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 3, 3 ch. 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 1, ch 3, 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 3, 5 ch. 1 sc around the corner of square 1, ch 5, 1 sc around the next ch-space on square 3, now crochet the last round as explained under "1 whole square".

Continue to crochet together as follows:
Put the work flat as you go along as it becomes easier to control each square which needs to be crochet tog – Note: Solid lines in diagram 1 indicate crochet as described under "1 whole square"; dotted lines indicate the number of ch’s and sc’s where crochet tog.
When you have crochet 6 rows of whole squares, crochet the 7 half squares, at the same time crochet them tog with the whole squares – see diagram 2.

Crochet edge:
Crochet an edge along the whole shawl with 2 strands of Vivaldi as follows:
Begin in one of the top corners and crochet downwards as follows: 1 sc into the ch space at the corner, *7 ch, 1 sc into the next sc*, repeat from *-* around the whole shawl, but along the flowers in the half square at the top of the shawl crochet ch 3, 1 sc in between 2 leaves, ch 3, 1 sc into the top of the leaf, ch 3, 1 sc in between the next 2 leaves and so on.
When you have crochet 1 round around the whole shawl crochet 1 more row but only along the sides (i.e. not along the top edge): *4 ch, 1 dc into the 1st of the ch 4, 1 sc around the ch space, ch 4, 1 dc into the 1st of the ch 4, 1 sc into the sc in between the ch spaces*, repeat from *-*.

Bobbles:
Crochet 15 bobbles, and sew to the shawl at the point where 4 corners meet up – see photo. 1 bobble = Ch 4 (= 1 ch + 1 dc) with 2 strands of Vivaldi.
Crochet 3 dc into the 1st of the 4 ch crochet (= 4 dc), turn the piece.
Ch 3 (= 1 dc), crochet the next 3 dc tog (i.e. crochet 1 dc into the next dc but wait with the last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), crochet 1 dc into the next dc, but wait with the last pull through (= 3 sts on hook), crochet 1 dc into the 3rd ch from beginning of previous row, and pull through all 4 yo’s.
Cut the yarn, form the bobble and use the 2 ends of threads to sew the bobble to the shawl.
