Shawl measures 77" wide (across top edge) x 34" long (not including fringe).
 
STITCH NATION by Debbie Stoller™ "Bamboo Ewe™": 6 balls 5410 Mercury.
 
Crochet Hook: 5mm [US H-8].
Yarn needle.
 
GAUGE: 1 pattern repeat = 9½"; 6 rows = 4". Notes: One pattern repeat consists of a pineapple pattern at its widest and the surrounding ch-spaces and shells. Gauge is not critical for this project. CHECK YOUR GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.
 
Special Stitches
Shell = Work (2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc) in indicated stitch or ch-space.
Increase-shell = Work (2 dc, [ch 2, dc] twice, ch 2, 2 dc) in indicated ch-space.
 
NOTES: Shawl is worked from lower edge upwards. Work in stitches and ch-spaces indicated only, skip all other stitches and ch-spaces.
