ASSEMBLY:
See diagram X.1 on how to place the squares. The diagonals towards the left (seen when shawl is flat in front of you) are worked tog with coral and the diagonals towards the right are worked tog with red. Place 2 and 2 squares on top of each other WS against WS, and work them tog as follows (also see diagram X.2): Work 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop in the corner on 2nd square, 4 ch, skip 3 tr on 1st square, 1 dc before next tr on 1st square, 2 ch, skip 3 tr on 2nd square, 1 dc before next tr on 2nd square, 4 ch, skip 3 tr on 1st square, 1 dc in next tr on 1st square, 2 ch, skip 3 tr on 2nd square, 1 dc in next tr on 2nd square, 4 ch, skip 3 tr on 1st square, 1 dc before next tr on 1st square, 2 ch, skip 3 tr on 2nd square, 1 dc before next tr on 2nd square, 4 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop on 1st square, 2 ch, 1 dc in ch-loop on 2nd square.
Continue to work squares tog like this. NOTE: Make sure that the transitions between every square are pretty when the squares are worked tog alongside.
