I did make one change to the pattern and did a crocheted border instead of fringe. I can’t stand fringe.
I worked the shawl until I had 101 half-double crochets in the middle of the pattern (doesn’t count the chain three, 2 hdc in one space at the start of the row or the 2 hdc in once space, chain one, hdc at the end of the row).
Then I did 106 sc across the top of the shawl and continued around doing once sc in each row, three in the “point” (the original circle made at the start of the shawl), and one sc in each row going up, joining with the first sc.
I finished off by doing *2 dc in one space, ch 4, slip stitch into first ch, 2 dc in same space, skip 2 spaces* and repeated from * to * all the way around.
