I downloaded this project and am eager to start I just have a question about the edging. Do I follow the written pattern until I have the 203 stitches and then follow the chart (thanks to those who have written out the charting instructions)?

Lovely pattern but the edging is charted only. Would be nice if written instructions were included, since I and many others don't read charts.

Hi. Thank you for offering this lovely pattern for free. I'm very eager to get going on it but am coming up with a problem right away. I casted on the 5 stitches, knitted the two rows of garter stitch, then knitted four rows of pattern. On the fifth row I'm one stitch short. I've ripped it out and reworked it from scratch, being VERY careful that I'm reading everything correctly. Still come up one stitch short. Any help appreciated.

Thanks for this lovely shawl and it was greatly admired for its simplicity. I used 6 mm needles and fingering to get the airy textures.
The body was very easy, the edge, however, needed a bit of concentration and focus. Stitch markers and a life line was helpful.

Thanks for sharing this beautiful shawl pattern! I am excited to try this since it does seem easier than other shawl patterns I have seen. I had no issues downloading, saving the pattern. The chart does not appear to be complex and gives us all great experience learning how to read a chart.

I am able to read charts, but I have come to the lace edging with 207 stitches on the needle. I have worked the first row of the chart, but do not have enough stitches to have an even number of pattern repeats (pink section) worked across. I need two more stitches to finish the repeat before working the last stitches to the center. Help!

I have the same problem. My first shawl and I am stuck on the edging. I'm sure I'm doing it wrong as so many others have had success. Here's what I understand to be the first 1/2 of row 1: K,K, yo, K, K, K, (yo, SK2P, yo, K), K, K, yo, ssk, yo with the parenthesis being the repeat. Anyone care to see if they can see what I did wrong?

I got guidance from the author- so you start row one of the edging with (from right to left on the chart: k,k,yo, k,(k,k,yo,sk2p,yo,k), k,k,yo,ssk,yo with pattern repeat in parens. What threw me off was the black no stitch squares- the author said to basically ignore those and start with the first actual chart stitch. So it looks like you're OK, except the pattern repeat strarts with two knit stitches. Hope this helps.

Beautiful shawl. This is my first time kniting with a chart and I don't understand the black square(no stitch) should I pass the stitches to the right niddle without knitting them? Thank you for your help.

The black squares are just blank squares and not to be knitted. It's to show in the chart that you add four new stitches on every other row as you have don in the body and that building up the triangular shape continues. This is the only way center panelled triangles can charted on squared paper.

It is so great to find this beautyful pattern for free!
But I need some help please, anyone? I have never knitted a shawl before, it's my first time. So far it's rather easy, I'm at ca. 2/3 of the body - but what I completely do not understand, is how this will look like when finished? If I read the pattern it seems to me that the edge chart will be knitted at the top of the shawl, so at the broadest part that is put on the shoulders - while on the pictures the edge is on the sides? Am I missing something?

Just hang in there. It works out to where the zigzag is on the edges. When you start this shawl, you are starting at the top and working your way down.

Love the pattern. Love written directions more. Written directions for everything except the lace edging and it's charted. I don't read charts and have tried. Please put written instructions for lace edging.

Please do yourself a favor and try " Charts Made Simple: understanding knitting charts visually" by JC Briar. It's around $16 on Amazon,; you may be able to get it from your local library. It's small, but powerful. I really wanted to try lace, but I could not read charts, and I would get lost in the words with descriptive patterns. Since using this book I have knit at least 10 pieces successfully using charts. In fact, now I make charts if the pattern is only descriptive. It's so much easier. Give it a try.

If you can't read charts try writing each line of the pattern on a separate small piece of paper in a column instead of horizontally.

I CANNOT read charts because of a brain recognition problem. If I was threatened with death I still could not read one because I cannot see the symbols. So, please, if you offer a free pattern, don't make half of it impossible to finish. There are many thousands of us who could never do a charted pattern because of vision or brain problems but we absolutely love to knit lace and there is not a book or tutorial available that would help us.

I, too, have serious problems trying to read charts - dyslexia - I'm going to have my daughter write the chart out for me because I love the pattern that much! Thank you.

Thank you, Maiden Brooklyn, for offering the pattern for this lovely scarf/shawl for free. I have not done lace, nor have I knit from a chart, but I should have books that tell me how somewhere in my knitting library. And I am certain I have just the right materials hiding in my stash room. Thanks again!

there is a key on page 2 of the pattern download. The easiest way for a beginner is to get out a pice of paper and write it out. circles are yarnovers for example. before you know it you will understand and be knitting from charts with ease. In this particular chart the parts shaded blue always stay the same...the two stitches on the edges and the center stitch. The pink sections are your repeats. black squares are nothing.. Just folow the chart from 1 on up. This chart only shows what to do on the knitted side as the purl side is the same as it is through the entire piece.

Thank you for the lovely pattern, this is my first attempt at a shawl, and it's name attracted me in the first instance. I am knitting this from a handspun English Leister wool, in its natural fleece colour, and I have assumed that the needles are US sizing so have opted for a UK4.5. I am almost out to the zig zag edge and my shawl seems quite small. I am probably a tight knitted but also wondered whether I had made the right assumption about the needle size - hopefully all things will ease in the wash and blocking it will release the tension. Cheers & thanks again (PS, I didn't have a drama downloading the free pattern, it was as you say, easy as pie and did it on the iPad!).

Thank you for offering this as a free pattern. It helped to take a look at the pattern to gauge the difficulty of the chart along with the written directions. I like to stretch my learning curve, which is part of the reason why I knit, but I also recognize when something is beyond my ability. The download couldn't have been easier and I'm not sure how you could've written the pattern any clearer, in written form or chart form. Wish me luck, if this goes well, I'll step up on the chart difficulty scale. ;-)

I agree, and it does say also that you need certain basic lace knitting and chart reading skills.
