Note: You can use any yarn you like, make sure you use the recommended hook
4mm crochet hook
8ply/DK yarn
Scissors and darning needle

US Terms
Ch - Chain
DC - Double Crochet
St(s) - Stitch(s)

Make slip knot.  Ch4, 2dc in 4th ch from hook.  Ch3, turn

Row 1:  1dc in same st as ch3, 1dc in next st, 2dc in last st, ch3 turn (5dc sts.)

Row 2: 1dc in same st as ch3, 1dc in next 3 sts, 2dc in last st, ch3 turn.  (7dc sts)

Row 3: 1dc in same st as ch3, 1dc in next 5 sts, 2dc in last st, ch3 turn (9 dc sts.)

Carry on increasing two dc each end and 1dc in each st in between to the size you wish your shawl to be. 
When you’ve finished getting to the size you wish, fasten off yarn and sow in yarn tails. 

You can also add a fringe border.

Taking the color of your choice, either the same color you used for the shawl or a completely different color and your crochet hook you used.

Insert your hook into the bottom 2sts when you started your shawl.  Pull yarn through and secure with a slip stitch

Start by working your single crochet on the top edges.  You have to decide where to put the sts and sometimes it might curl up and that means you’ve not added enough single crochet stitches, which might make it a bit tight.  It needs to look flat when laid down.  Don’t work into the gaps or you’ll end up with a gapping whole.  Work single crochet to the end.

When you reach top row edge, work 3sc in corner st, which will make it go around the corner, otherwise it will curl up.  1sc each st of top of last row.  Into last corner stitch, work 3sc. 

Work the other side down like you work it up the same.  When you get to the last st which would the beginning, slip stitch into first stitch and fasten off.  Sew in ends.
