See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

Work squares with different colours on every round, therefore divide 1 of the balls in several balls out based on colour change in ball.

The piece is worked top down. READ COLOUR CHANGE SQUARES. Use crochet hook size 3.5 mm and work according to diagram A.1. NOTE: Switch colour for every round in A.1. When A.1 has been worked, switch to an entirely new ball and continue according to diagram A.2 (do not switch colour for every row in A.2). Work according to A.2 until 29 rows have been worked in total according to diagram A.2 - REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION. Fasten off.
Work 27 new squares according to A.1 – REMEMBER COLOUR CHANGE. When squares are ready, place them in a nice order along the last row worked according to A.2. Fasten them tog and then to edge. NOTE: Fasten one square at the tip of shawl and the 2 outermost squares at the long side should be half a square outside edge.
Then continue according to A.2 in under side of squares as before (i.e. work 3 tr around every ch along the side/around each corner space and 1 ch over every tr-group, but around tip work 4 tr, 3 ch and 4 tr). Work 11 rows in total according to diagram A.2. Fasten off.


= 3 ch at beg of round, finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch
= tr around ch/ch-space
= 6 ch that form a ring with 1 sl st
= ch
= 5 ch at beg of a row
