Make sure you end the row with 3 double crochets as the beginning, ch1 and turn

Row 4:  dc1 in 1st st from hook, dc1 in next st, dc1 in next st,*[ ch4, skip 1st, sc1 in next st, skip 1,sc1 in next st, skip 1 st,sc 1 in next st, skip 1st, sc in next st, ch 4, skip 1st, dc1 in next 3 stitches]* repeat from * to * for a total of 14 times. Ch 1 and turn

Next is Row 6:  dc1 in 1st st from hook, dc1 in next st, dc1 in next st,*[ ch1, tr1 on top of 1st sc from prev row, , ch1, tr1 on top of next sc from prev row, ch1 ,tr 1 on top of next sc from prev row, ch1, tr on top of last  sc from prev row, ch 1, dc1 in next 3 stitches]* repeat from * to * for a total of 14 times. ch1 and turn

Row 7: dc1 in 1st st from hook, dc1 in next and in every st to end of row. Make sure you have 171 stitches, ch1 and turn

Row 8+9 repeat row7

This is the end of the pattern repeat. 

I used only one skein of yarn, so I made 3 repeats of the pattern.

At the last repeat instead of 3 rows of double crochet stitches, I worked two rows of half doubles like at the beginning.

If you decide to make this shawl wider and keep working pattern repeats, make sure to end with two rows of half dobles.

Before you leave 🙂
