AAW Shawl -tutorial
If you have not crochet before or much, click the link to see BlanketNo1 -tutorial. There is a video about it how to crochet this web. See it first.
If you have done a bit before you can jump in right here.
I use pale fog blue AAW yarn for this project. Of course you don't have it but you can use any other yarn. 100g of AAW means 238 meters and I used 250 g for this shawl but at the end it all is up to the yarn and hook size you use.
You need to find the correct rhythm which means if you are going to make the wed to be fastened to every 3rd single stitch (like I did here) you need to make the chain stitch start width that is able to be divided by 3. BUT at the end if you miss one or two it is not so serious, no one will notice the result so don't stress about it.
Bigger thing is to understand how the web begins to form out. If you fasten it to every 3rd single stitch you need 3 chain stitches and then fasten it by one single stitch to the 3rd one. By using one extra stitch compared to single stitch amount forms out smaller eyed web and so the shawl turns out thicker. If you use 2-3 extra chains instead of 1 the web hole will be bigger. If you use similar amount of stitches you won't get much web at all.
OOW BabyScarf No1 if you need some help to stretch your shawl a bit. (You don't need to wash it, just see how the weights are loaded.)
