Make 6 YOs on hook, insert hook in 6th ch on beg of previous row, make 1 YO and pull yarn through this st, * 1 YO on hook, pull yarn through the next 2 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* 6 more times = 1 loop on hook.

See diagrams A.1 to A.6.

Worked back and forth, top down.

Beg with hook size 5 mm and Big Delight and work pattern according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been worked vertically, piece measures approx. 8.5 cm measured along inc in the middle of shawl. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! Now continue from row with arrow in diagram A.2-A.6 as follows: Work A.2 (= inc in the side), A.3, work A.4 (= inc in the middle), work A.5 and finish with A.6 (= inc in the side).
When diagram has been worked vertically, repeat repetitions from row with arrow, i.e. there are more and more repetitions of A.3 and A.5 between inc in the middle and in the sides.
Continue pattern like this until piece measures approx. 72 cm measured along inc in the middle of shawl - adjust so that last row worked is a row with dtr groups with 7 dtr.
Fasten off.


= Work 4 ch and form a ring with 1 sl st
= beg row with 6 ch
= finish row with 1 QUADRUPLE TR - see explanation above.
= 1 dtr around ch-space
= 1 dtr in st
= 1 ch
= 4 ch
= Beg on this row. Previous row has already been worked
