SHAWL:
ROW 1: Ch 5 (= 1st tr + 1 ch) with Delight on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 . Work in 1st ch as follows: 1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc, and 1 tr, turn. NOTE: Beg every row with ch 4 (= 1 tr), and finish with 1 tr to avoid tight diagonal sides.
ROW 2: ch 4 (= 1st tr), 1 dc in 1st dc, ch 2, 1 dc-group in next ch-space - Read CROCHET INFO above, ch 2, finish with 1 dc in next dc and 1 tr in 5th ch from previous row (inc sts in each side = 1 tr, 1 dc and 2 ch).
Turn piece and work sl st until 1st ch-space.
ROW 3: In 1st ch-space work: ch 4, 1 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc, then 1 dc-group in next ch-space, in the last ch-space work 2 dc, ch 2, 1 dc and 1 tr, turn piece.
ROW 4: ch 4, 1 dc in 1st tr, ch 2, then 1 dc-group in each of the next 3 ch-spaces, ch 2, finish with 1 dc in last dc and 1 tr in 4th ch from previous row, turn and work sl st until 1st ch-space (inc sts in each side = 1 tr, 1 dc and 2 ch).
ROW 5: In 1st ch-space work: ch 4, 1 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc, then 1 dc-group in each of the next 3 ch-spaces, in the last ch-space work 2 dc, ch 2, 1 dc and 1 tr, turn.
Repeat 4TH and 5TH ROW so that 1 more dc-group is worked in every ch-space on row - but inc 1 tr, 1 dc and 2 ch in each side of shawl on every even numbered row (6th, 8th, 10th row etc.). Continue like this until piece measures approx. 60 cm / 23½'' lengthwise mid back (or until desired length), fasten off.
