Important to realize, the wrap is worked in a triangle starting in the middle of the long side. Consequently, you start building a triangle formed by a cluster stitch defining the right angle of the triangle: 2 dc + 2 ch + 2 dc.

Furthermore, the modern lacy stitch for this modern crochet shawl is very easy: dc stitches with a ch1 separating them. To clarify, you’ll place each dc stitch on top of the dc stitch of the previous row.
