Chevron Net Shawl

I have started this project months ago and I finally got around to finishing it.  I had made this a scrap yarn project. I had found that I would want to change colors every few rows so you can see chevron pattern.  I had found that there wasn't much give along the "points" of the chevron and along the edges. But I think this is necessary to give the chevron pattern some stability. With the right yarn this could make a light and airy shawl. So here is the pattern on how I did this

Worsted Weight Yarn
Size H Crochet Hook

Chain 98
Row 1: sc in second chain from hook, *ch 5, skip 3 stitches, sc in next stitch* repeat until end. ch 1, turn. You will have 24 chain 5 loops

Row 2: sc in next sc and chain 5 loop, [*ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat once , ch 5, sc in next sc (this creates the top peak) *ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat 2 times, sc in next ch 5 loop (this creates the bottom peak) ] Repeat brackets 2 more times.
*ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat once, ch 5, sc in next sc  *ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat 2 times, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn

Row 3: sc2tog over the next 2 sc's, sc in the next ch 5 loop. Repeat the bracket instructions from row 2 three times. 
*ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat once, ch 5, sc in next sc  *ch 5, sc in next ch 5 loop,* repeat 2 times, sc2tog over the last 2 sc's, ch 1, turn

Repeat Row 3 until the piece measures 60 inches or desired length.
