Section 10: Tss
Row A: Forward and Return- Tps in all stitches, work last as you normally would. Return.  (This creates a defined break between the stitch combos).
Row B: Forward and Return: Edge and increase sts, Tss across this side, Tip Instructions, Tss across this side, Increase and edge sts. Return.
Repeat Row B for a total of 6 rows with Row A as the 7th.

I always try to repeat stitch combos within a piece to create unity and symmetry in the overall piece.  For the remainder of this shawl, I repeated the various sections up to #10. This will allow you to add as many sections as you need to create a shawl your size.

Last Row: Switch to a regular crochet hook 1-2 sizes smaller than your long hook. Using a Purl Foundation, Sc into each stitch and Yo Sp.  

From there you can add Back Crossed Dc across the top edge of your shawl, if so desired.  The Dc will help disguise uneven edges and the Back Crossed stitches will easily adapt to the tension and gauge of TC and not cause any binding or ripples.
