I do not consider this pattern a beginners pattern, you need to be experienced in front and back post stitches and adding new post stitches into a curve.

IMPORTANT NOTES: SIDE ROWS ARE  MOSTLY WORKED INTO THE SIDE OF ALL THE DC OF THE BASE BAND ON THE SHAPED SIDE NOT THE STRAIGHT SIDE, YOU START AND FINISH WITH 3TR IN THE FIRST AND LAST ST. 

All front post stitches are trebles and done on even rows and all back post trebles are done on the odd rows, all other stitches between post stitches are double crochet.

BASE: 
Make a base for the Fan Crescent then add the side rows to the shaped side not the straight side. This will make the straight base start to curve.

PATTERN:
ROW 1: 3tr, in first st, 2dc, in the side of each dc, 3tr in last st. Turn.





ROW 2: ch3, counts as first tr, 2tr in the first st, 1dc, in next 4 sts, frptr, into the first ridge of the base dc, 1dc in next 4 sts, 






repeat the front post in the space between the sets of 4dc, at a ridge in the base crescent, 1dc in next 4 sts, to end, finish with 1dc in last 2sts, 3tr, in last sp. TURN. [42 post st, ridges]






ROW 3: ch3 counts as first tr, 2tr in first st, 1dc in next 8sts, bptr, into the fptr, 1dc in next 4sts, repeat bptr and 4dc, to last ptr, dc in last 6sts,  3tr, in last sp. Turn.

ROW 4: ch3, counts as first tr, 2tr in first st, dc in next 4 sts, fptr into 3tr of row2, dc, into next 4sts, fptr into next post st, repeat to end. Turn


5 - 13: repeat rows 3 and 4, adding in a new front post stitch at the beginning and end of front post rows.

BIGGER VERSION: You could add more rows before adding the triangle edging but it will take more yarn than the 200g suggested.

TRIANGLE EDGING. Made in every 6 sts. post st, to post st, continuous.
sc in first 6 st, turn miss first st sc in next 5 sts, turn miss first st sc in next 4 sts, turn, miss first st, sc in next 3 sts, turn, miss first st sc in next 2 sts, turn, miss first st sc in last st, ch2, sc in each st to bottom of triangle, [6sts], sc into top of post st and repeat to end.

  2. Susan; I am experienced in these stitches but I want my shawl deeper but no weirder, I don't think than I see here. How do I achieve this. I'm thinking it should be distributed in both designs at top and the lower portion for cohesiveness. Could you email me or answer here?

    1. hI andi, not quite sure exactly what you mean but the base pattern would not be big enough with out more length? x
