Getting Started:
It’s OK if your gauge is off from mine, just know that it will affect the finished size of your piece.
You will want to block your finished piece. I recommend using Unicorn Fibre Rinse when you block.

Pattern:

  1. All of the crochet is beautiful. I thank you for the pattern. I can hardly wait to get started on my Christmas gifts for the ladies in my family. Thanks again…….Lois Harper, 400 S. 2nd Street, Santa Anna, Texas…..76878

  2. Hello! This is such a beautiful piece, and I’d really like to make one myself. But I’m new to crocheting so I’m still trying to learn to read patterns :). At the end of Row 2 it says “dc in last st” – is that the 3rd chain of the Chain 5 that started Row 1?
    Thanks for your help & for sharing this pattern!

  3. Thank you for this lovely pattern. I made this shawl linen blend yarn in soft grey and rose colors and it turned out beautifully. The pattern was very well written. Thank you!

  4. Hi – I am also new to crochet and I guess sort of stupid too – what are the number of chains used in the foundation row? I can’t seem to find this anywhere in the pattern. I also plan to make this in deep purple and lavender and light lavender. Thanks.

  5. This is so beautiful, but I’m not sure if I made a mistake early on. I’ve completed row 8 and the non-point end is a semi-circle, curving inward. Is this correct, or should it be straight?
    Thank you.

    • I just added in stitch counts at the end of each Row. You should have 72 sc at the end of Row 8. If you have the correct number of sts you should be fine. Sometimes the shape looks that way at the start of a shawl.

  6. Hi Jessie,

    I’m on row 21 approx. The pattern is well written and it’s turning out lovely, but I can’t seem to figure out why my work is so wavy.

    Do you have any hints, please?

    Thanks

    • If you’re on Facebook, join my group linked at the end of the pattern. Then you can share a picture and it may be easier to figure out what’s going on. Without seeing a picture, I’d say make sure your stitch counts are correct, and that you haven’t skipped too few stitches when you skip stitches.
