Here are some more details to help with crocheting the start of my shawl design Squidge.
See the main post here.
I've made an oversize version of the starting point of the shawl, and blocked it mercilessly :)
You'll see that each ch-sc stitch forms a triangle shape with 2ch on one side, a single thread on the other side and a double thread across the top. (When working a ch-sc into the 1-ch spaces, make sure that you insert the hook to the left of the single thread of the ch-sc in the row below.)
The double line on the sides of each ch-sc represents the 2ch part of the stitch as described above, and appear as you see them.
Note that the stitch count increases by 1 ch-sc every second row.
I hope this helps!
