PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 to A.3.

SHAWL:
Beg with Cotton Merino on hook size 4 mm and work pattern in the round according to diagram A.1. Work chain stitch ring and the first four round in the round, then work the rest of shawl back and forth. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION! When entire A.1 has been worked, continue from first row in diagrams as follows:
Work A.2a (3 chain stitches = 1 treble and 3 chain stitches), work A.2b 3 repetitions in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the first 9 chain spaces), work A.2c (= 3 chain stitches), then work the first 5 trebles in A.2b around same chain space (i.e. the middle chain space), then continue with A.2b until 3 repetitions have been worked in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the next 8 chain spaces), work A.2d around the last chain space = 46 trebles on each side of the middle chain space. Continue back and forth with A.2a to A.2b. When diagrams have been worked vertically, there are 75 trebles on each side of the middle chain space.
Now continue as follows:
ROW 1 (from wrong side): Work 7 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around chain space, * work 5 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 14 more times, but work last double crochet around the middle chain space on shawl, 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around same chain space, * work 5 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, work 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 14 more times, work 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space. There are now 16 chain spaces on each side of chain space in the middle of shawl.
ROW 2: Work 7 chain stitches, * 5 trebles around first/next chain space *, repeat from ** 15 more times, work (5 trebles, 3 chain stitches, 5 trebles) around chain space in the middle of shawl, * work 5 trebles around first/next chain space *, repeat from ** 15 more times, work 5 trebles around last chain space, work 4 chain stitches and 1 treble around the last chain space on row. There are now 85 trebles on each side of chain space in the middle of shawl.
ROW 3: Work 11 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around first chain space, * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 15 more times, work 6 chain stitches, A.3 around the middle chain space. Continue with * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 15 more times, work 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space, 8 chain stitches, 1 treble around last chain space. There are now 18 chain spaces on each side of A.3.
ROW 4: Work 11 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around first chain space, * 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from ** until chain space in the middle of shawl, work 6 chain stitches, A.3 around chain space in the middle of shawl. Then work * 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from ** until last chain space, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space, 8 chain stitches, 1 treble around last chain space.
Repeat 4th row 7 more times, but on every row worked repeat ** 1 more time (i.e. on every row worked there is 1 chain space more on each side of A.3) = 9 rows in total with chain spaces and 26 chain spaces on each side of A.3.
Now work pattern from first row in diagrams A.2, the same way as before, but work more repetitions in width as follows:
Work A.2a (3 chain stitches = 1 treble and 3 chain stitches), work A.2b 9 repetitions in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the first 27 chain spaces), work A.2c (= 3 chain stitches), then work the first 5 trebles in A.2b around same chain space (i.e. the middle chain space), then continue with A.2b until 9 repetitions have been worked in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the next 26 chain spaces), work A.2d around the last chain space = 136 trebles on each side of the middle chain space. Continue back and forth with A.2a to A.2d. When diagrams have been worked vertically, there are 165 trebles on each side of the middle chain space.
Now continue as follows:
ROW 1 (from wrong side): Work 7 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around chain space, * work 5 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 32 more times, but work last double crochet around the middle chain space on shawl, 3 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around same chain space, * work 5 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, work 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 32 more times, work 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space. There are now 34 chain spaces on each side of chain space in the middle of shawl.
ROW 2: Work 7 chain stitches, * 5 trebles around first/next chain space *, repeat from ** 33 more times, work (5 trebles, 3 chain stitches, 5 trebles) around chain space in the middle of shawl, * work 5 trebles around first/next chain space *, repeat from ** 33 more times, work 5 trebles around last chain space, work 4 chain stitches and 1 treble around the last chain space on row. There are now 175 trebles on each side of increase in the middle of shawl.
ROW 3: Work 11 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around first chain space, * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles *, repeat from ** 33 more times, work 6 chain stitches, A.3 around the middle chain space. Continue with * 6 chain stitches, skip 5 trebles, 1 double crochet *, repeat from ** 33 more times, work 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space, 8 chain stitches, 1 treble around last chain space. There are now 36 chain spaces on each side of A.3.
ROW 4: Work 11 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around first chain space, * 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from ** until chain space in the middle of shawl, work 6 chain stitches, A.3 around chain space in the middle of shawl. Then work * 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around next chain space *, repeat from ** until last chain space, 6 chain stitches, 1 double crochet around last chain space, 8 chain stitches, 1 treble around last chain space.
Repeat 4th row 7 more times, but on every row worked repeat ** 1 more time (i.e. on every row worked there is 1 chain space more on each side of the middle chain space) = 9 rows in total with chain spaces and 44 chain spaces on each side of A.3.
Now work pattern from first row in diagrams A.2, the same way as before, but work more repetitions in width as follows:
Work A.2a (3 chain stitches = 1 treble and 3 chain stitches), work A.2b 15 repetitions in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the next 45 chain spaces), work A.2c (= 3 chain stitches), then work the first 5 trebles in A.2b around same chain space (i.e. the middle chain space), then continue with A.2b until 15 repetitions have been worked in total in width (i.e. 5 trebles around each of the next 44 chain spaces), work A.2d around the last chain space = 226 trebles on each side of the middle chain space. Continue back and forth with A.2a to A.2d. Finish after 4th row in diagrams. Fasten off.
Diagram

= Work 4 chain stitches and form a ring with 1 slip stitch 

= 1 chain stitch 

= 1 double crochet in chain space 

= 1 half treble around chain space/around space between triple trebles


= 1 treble around chain space 

= 1 treble in stitch 

= 1 double treble around chain space 

= 1 triple treble in stitch 

= 1 triple treble around chain space 

= work 2 trebles together around chain stitch ring/chain space: Work 1 treble but wait with last pull through, work 1 more treble but on last pull through, pull yarn through all loops on hook. 

= round begins with 3 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch at beginning of round 

= round begins with 2 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 2nd chain stitch at beginning of round, then work slip stitches until first chain space 

= round begins with 2 chain stitches and finishes with 1 slip stitch in 2nd chain stitch at beginning of round 

= Begin on this row 

= row begins by working slip stitches until chain space, then work 4 chain stitches 

= row begins by working slip stitches until chain space, then work 7 chain stitches

Aan het einde van a2 heb ik in plaats van de benodigde 75 stokjes aan beide zeiden maar 65. Wat is de beste manier om dit op te lossen? Ik heb het patroon al een keer uitgetrokken en opnieuw gehaakt maar ik blijf uitkomen op 65.

Dag Brechtje,
Waarschijnlijk heb je toch ergens een lossenlus met een stokje op een vorige toer over het hoofd gezien. Als het patroon verder symmetrisch is en mooi doorloopt en niet trekt o.i.d. zou het verder geen probleem moeten zijn en zou je verder kunnen haken met minder stokjes.

I've done until just before A.3. So I have 6 chain stitches. Now I have to work 5 chain stitches (=A.3. row1) around the middle chain space. But how? Shouldn't the A.3. row1 be 1sc+3ch+1sc or something like that, instead of 5ch? Otherwise you can't get into the middle chain space. You'll end up 6ch +5ch (and then 6ch again).

Dear Mick, A.3 is worked in the middle of shawl, after the 6 chains work A.3 = 2 dc together+5 chains + 2 dc together around the chainspace from previous row, then crochet 6 chains and finish row as explained on the other side of shawl. Happy crocheting!

Todo bien hasta llegar a la parte segunda donde pone 75 puntos altos en cada lado. No sé dónde salen esos 75 puntos. A mi me salen 46 que cada lado
29.04.2023  15:34DROPS Design answered:
Hola Potxoli, después de llegar a 46 puntos altos, continuar trabajando A.2a y A.2b hasta llegar a 75 puntos altos. Los aumentos están incluidos en el diagrama.

Ik zit vast bij de toer waar je 46 stokjes hebt aan beide kanten....... Wat moet ik nu verder doen? Er staat; ga verder heen en weer met A2a tot en met A2d, tot er 75 stokjes zijn aan beide kanten. Betekent dit dat ik nog een rij van telkens 5 stokjes moet haken?

Dzień dobry! Czy w pierwszym akapicie w poleceniu: „ Dalej przerabiać schematy A.2a  A.2b w tę i z powrotem.” faktycznie robimy od schematu A.2a do A.2b czy jednak wszystkie schematy po kolei? Pozdrawiam ( :
30.06.2022  13:31DROPS Design answered:
Witaj Aleksandro, robimy schematy po kolei, na początku rzędu schemat A.2a jak wcześniej, następnie powtarzamy A.2b na jednym boku szala, na środku (czubek szala) A.2c, dalej powtarzamy A.2 b na drugim boku szala i na końcu rzędu przerabiamy A.2 d. Pozdrawiamy!

I just finished the last row in diagram A.2a with the 5 double crochets. I’m lost on how to begin the next 2 rows before making the arrow looking motif. These are shown in your diagram A.2b.Yep
03.04.2022  03:52DROPS Design answered:
Dear Mr Howell, after you have worked A.2a to A.2b and you have 75 dc on each side of the middle chainspace, work as described in the written pattern from ROW 1 to ROW 4 a total of 8 times (with A.3 in the middle as described). Then you will follow diagrams again with A.2a, A.2b and A.2c. Happy crocheting!
