For the lighter sample I used

Tunisian Hook
Choose a hook with a cord quite a bit larger than you would normally use. For the dk sample I used an L/8mm for the sock weight I used a K/6.6mm

Notes
This shawl started with just a few stitches. more stitches are added st the beginning of each row making an asymmetrical triangle.

Each row consists of a return pass.

Instructions

Ch 2.
Row 1: Pull up a loop in the front and back loop of the 2nd ch from hook (3 loops on hook), RP.
