SHAWL:
Worked back and forth from bottom of tip and upwards.

Work pattern according to diagram A.1 with Alpaca on hook size 3 mm. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, continue with A.3 over each of the squares in pattern, AT THE SAME TIME continue inc in each side as shown in A.2. NOTE: Work inc in A.2 reversed in the other side (only left side is shown in diagram). When A.3 has been worked vertically, continue with A.4. NOTE: Square pattern will displace as shown in A.2, i.e. ½ repetition towards the side, so that mesh pattern between square form a zig-zag line.
Continue inc in each side as shown in A.1. When A.4 has been worked vertically, continue with A.5 2 times vertically. Then work A.3, AT THE SAME TIME continue inc in each side as shown in A.2. There are now 3 pattern squares at the most vertically. When A.3 has been worked vertically, continue with A.4. NOTE: Square pattern will displace as shown in A.2 and as before in piece. Continue inc in each side as shown in A.1. When A.4 has been worked vertically, continue with A.6 1 time vertically (1½ pattern square vertically). Now work an edge at the top as follows: Work 1 dc in every tr until mesh pattern beg, * 3 ch, 1 dc in next tr *, repeat from *-* along the entire edge at the top until only tr remain on row below, work 1 dc in every tr. Cut and fasten the yarn.

Diagram

= ch
= dc in st below
= dc in ch-loop below
= tr in st
= tr around ch-loop
= 8 ch
= 4 ch
= Work 1 tr in next tr but wait with last pull through (= 2 sts on hook), work 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr the same way, pull yarn through all 4 sts on hook
= beg here
= triple tr
