How do I make a half circle?

the only thing is I can't figure out how to make a half-circle. Could anyone help me?

i don't think that is made in a half circle. just steady decreases on both sides of a dc or sc (with a large hook), then on the side edges, dc's to give it a softer-round look. probably the same with the collar thing, with decreases to come to make the point where it comes together, then a big 'ol rose pin.

Here is a pattern for a half a watermelon rug ...I'll bet if you play around with this pattern you may end up with something you are looking for.

Half Circle Lapghan
Row 1: Ch 2, 6 dc in second ch from hook
Row 2: Ch 2, dc in same st as beg st, 2 dc in each remaining dc across
Row 3: Ch 2, dc in same st as beg st, dc in next st, *2 dc in next st, dc in next st* across ending with 2 dc in turning chain
Continuing Rows: Ch 2, dc in same st as beg st, increase the number of *dc in next st(s) by one for each row, then 2 dc in next st* and repeat across.
IOW, Row 4 would be ch 2, dc in same st as beg st, *dc in next 2 sts, 2 dc in next st* across ending with 2 dc in turning chain
Row 5 would be ch 2, dc in same st as beg st, *dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in next st* across, ending with 2 dc in turning chain and so on until desired size is reached.
Howerver, I agree....the pic you posted isn't a half circle. It's like if you cut a pie into 8 pieces and took away two adjacent pieces. What remains -the six pieces- is the shape you're looking for to make the shawl in that picture. )
