See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagram A.2 shows a enlarged square of A.1.
The first 2 rows are explained below:
ROW 1: 12 ch. Work 1 tr in the 10th and 11th ch from hook, in the 12th ch from hook work 1 tr, 2 ch, 1 triple tr.
ROW 2: 9 ch, 2 tr in 1st ch-space below, 1 tr in each of the next 3 tr, 2 tr in ch-space below, 2 ch, 1 triple tr in ch-space on previous row.

MEASURING TIP: Because of the weight of the yarn, all measurements should be done when the shawl is held up.

Worked from the tip and up. Use 1 strand Alpaca on hook size 4 mm. Work PATTERN according to diagram A.1/A.2, see explanation above. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Continue inc in the sides and work according to diagram A.1. When piece measures approx. 56 cm in the middle, continue with 1 tr in every st below until finished measurements while AT THE SAME TIME continuing inc in each side = approx. 283 tr on last row. Fasten off when piece measures approx. 58 cm vertically and approx. 141 cm in width at the top.
