See diagrams A.1 and A.2.

The shawl is worked back and forth from the middle of the edge at the top of the shawl and down to the tip.
Work 5 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm and Delight and form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue back and forth according to diagram A.1. When A.1 has been completed, work as follows: Work A.2a and A.2b over the first chain-space, repeat A.2b over the next 3 chain-spaces, work A.2c over the next chain-space (= middle-space), repeat A.2d over the next 3 chain-spaces, work A.2d and A.2e over the last chain-space. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When A.2 has been completed in height, repeat A.2 in height upwards with increases, i.e. work as follows: Work A.2a and A.2b over the first chain-space, repeat A.2b as far as the middle-space, work A.2c over the middle-space, repeat A.2d until there is 1 chain-space left, work A.2d and A.2e over the last chain-space. Repeat A.2 in height with increases until the piece measures approx. 75 cm measured along the middle-space. Finish with a row of double treble crochets, cut and fasten the strand.
