Shawl to crochet


Lovely easy shawl to crochet!

Method
Row 1 Ch 4, 8 tr in 4th ch from hook, chain 3, turn.

Row 2 Ch 3, turn, 2 tr in last st of previous round (2 sts increased at beginning of row), ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 tr in next st, ch 1 skip next st, 5 tr in next st (4 increases made at centre point of shawl), ch 1 skip next st, 1 tr in next st, ch 1 skip next st, 3 tr in top of beginning chain (2 sts increased at end of row).

Row 3 Ch 3, turn, 2 tr in last st of previous round (2 sts increased at beginning of row), 1 tr in each of next two sts, tr in ch 1 space, tr in next st, tr in ch 1 space, tr in each of next two sts, 5 tr in next st (4 increases made at centre point of shawl), tr in next 2 sts, tr in ch 1 space, tr in next st, tr in ch 1 space, tr in next 2 sts, 3 tr in top of beginning chain (2 sts increased at end of row).
Rows 2 and 3 form the pattern.
Make increases as set on every row, bringing new sts into pattern, i.e. all even rows will start as row 2 and all odd rows will start as row 3.
Work a further 48 rows.
Rows 52 and 53 work another 2 rows of trebles increasing as set by row 3.
Fasten off and work in loose ends.
The increases form a very neat edge. Tussles also look great!
