20 sts and 14 rows in rows in half treble crochet only to 10 cm/4 in using 3.5 mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension)
Basic crochet stitches, working in rows, raised (post) stitches, decreasing, increasing.
The shawl starts at the point at one end with increases on each edge and decreases around the central line of raised trebles to create the biased fabric. At the central point the increase and decrease pattern alters to keep the stitch count even but continue to create a biased fabric.
