  1. Have done a lot of crocheting and your pattern is very unclear.. Row 2in ch-2 what? space? Most patterns are VERY much more clear.

  2. Do you have an easy way to calculate how many stiches/DCs there should be at the end of each row? I am using a yarn that is very difficult to see actual stitches and the only way I will be able to make this accurately is to make sure my counts are correct at the end of each row.

      • thanksfor the stitch count for dbl crochet stitches at the end of the odd rows. Sorry but could you also give me # of stitches for the even rows too?odd rows change by 16 more and even rows would change by ????

  3. In case you didn’t know, Lion Brand has cut the size of their balls from 518 to 481 yards, nearly 120 feet less. You WILL run out of yarn!

  4. OMG! The pattern’s of shawl is sooo beautiful! I have a pink and grey colours angora yarn and this pattern will be the best for it! Thank you very much!
