Pattern Note

The shawl is worked flat.

I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each row instead of ch 3. Another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, then dc in same stitch (counted as first dc). In the pattern, I simply state dc into first stitch for every first dc of each row, so just choose your best technique.
