1 dc-group = 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in same ch space.

See diagram A-1 (the diagram shows the pattern from RS).

Ch 5 with 1 strand of each yarn on hook size 3.5 mm/E.
Work in 1st ch as follows: 1 tr, ch 2, 2 tr = 1st row in diagram A-1, turn.
Continue to work rows 2-5 in diagram A-1.
Then repeat rows 4 and 5 so that 1 dc-group is worked in every ch space and inc 2 tr and 2 ch in each side on every even numbered row (ROW 6, 8, 10, etc.).
Continue like this until piece measures approx. 65 cm / 25½'' in length mid back (finish with an uneven numbered row), turn.
Then work an edge around the entire shawl.

ROUND 1: Sl sts until 1st ch space, ch 1, 1 sc in same ch space, * ch 5, 1 sc in next ch space *, repeat from *-* the entire row.
Continue to work along the diagonal edge as follows: Work * ch 5, 1 sc in next 4-ch space, ch 5, 1 sc in next tr *, repeat from *-* along both diagonal edges – NOTE: Work 1 sc, ch 5, 1 sc in the tip of shawl, finish with 1 sl st in 1st sc.
Adapt the pattern so that the number of ch spaces are divisible by 2.
ROUND 2: In first ch space work 3 dc, ch 3, 1 sl st in 1st ch, 3 dc, * in next ch space work 1 sc, ch 3, 1 sc, in next ch space work 3 dc, ch 3, 1 sl st in 1st ch, 3 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl in 1st, cut yarn and weave in the tails.
