Cotton blend Shawl

Shawl for my boyfriend's mum!

Your number of stitches has to be dividable by 6+7.

This yarn is also a cotton blend, and calls for a 6 mm hook.

First row: 1 dc in 7th ch from hook. *2 ch, skip 2, 1 sc in the next stitch, 2 ch, skip 2. Crochet '1 dc, 5 ch, 1 dc'* in the next stitch. Repeat from * to * until end of row.

Row 2: 7 ch. Crochet 1 sc in the chain of 5, then 2 ch, '1dc, 5 ch, 1 dc in the next stitch, 2 ch. repeat from * to *, end with 1 sc in the 'turning-chain' of the last row.

Rest: Repeat row 2, but only make 1 dc in the last sc of each row, and then 5 ch, and one sc in the edge. Start next row with 1 ch and 1 cs in the first chain of ch's. Continue until all stitches have been taken in.
