Easy Quick & Beautiful Shawl

 Easy, Quick and Beautiful Shawl
Original pattern idea from E. Moreland at
Changes and additions by Berta Gilholm
I'm a size adult 12 -14, but you can stop or add rows any where you reach the width and length required befoe you crochet the border area.
Caron Simply Soft 100% Acrylic, medium worsted weight yarn, color #9811 Embroidery
Crochet Hook size US I/9 – 5.5mm
Yarn Needle

Abbreviations: Ch = Chain, Sc = Single Crochet, Dc = Double Crochet, Sp = Space, Jwslst = Join with slip stitch, FO = Fasten Off.

Instructions: Worked in rows from the tip at the bottom up to shoulder area. Ch 3 at beginning  always counts as “dc, ch 1”.
Make a magic ring,
Row 1: Ch 3, *“dc, ch 1 in ring”, Repeat from * 1 more time, dc in ring, tighten magic ring and weave in, turn (4 dc + 3 ch 1 sp)
Row 2: Ch 3, dc in same st (increase made), *ch 1, dc in next dc, Repeat from * 1 more time, ch 1, 2 dc in last dc, turn (6 dc + 5 ch 1 sp)
Row 3 through Row 65: Repeat the Row 2 pattern adding 2 increases on each row, 1 at each end.

Last Row and Border:
Work around the corner, Do not turn, “Ch 3, dc, ch 1, dc” in the corner,
Going down side 1: 
Ch 1, 1 dc in bottom of same corner sp,
Ch 1, 1 dc in the end st of next row,
Ch 1, 2 dc in the end st of next row,
Ch 1, 1 dc in the end st of next row,
Ch 1, 2 dc in the end st of next row,
Repeat this pattern all the way down the side, so you have 3 dc, ch 1 in each 2 end rows. You will have a total of 98 dc + 97 ch sp down the side.
Going up side 2: 
Repeat from “Work around corner through down side 1” going up for second side.
Across Top:
Repeat “Work around corner”, ch 1, dc in each dc across up to first ch 3 in corner, jwslst to top of corner ch 3, FO, Weave in ends.
