I made this shawl. The body had a few errors in the pattern and when I put the fringe on the # of stitches did not match up to the pattern. It was disappointing that there was an error in the pattern when I had spent many hours knitting...

Hello I'm having trouble understanding the pattern. How is the edge added after you reach 203 stitches? And how do you make the points at the end? Bottom part of the chart is missing and chart is hard to read. Please help my email is sallyjh56@yahoo.com

I cannot understand the Shells Chart. The repeat pattern of the shell chart shown in my pattern is not symmetrical. Shouldn't the Central Double Decrease be included in the 'pink' repeat section? Why did someone say the open boxes are not stitches...shouldn't they be a knit stitch? I cannot make these stitch counts work. Is there a video on this somewhere? Thank you.

I, too, am baffled with this chart, but the open boxes ARE knit stitches according to the info on the second page of the pattern.

Ok, now I have a new question. I am up to row #25, where the double decreases are. I have counted my stitches and they are correct. However, when I do the double decrease on the "longer" sides, the ones with one more stitch, I don't have enough, yet, I have one extra on the part that has only one double decrease. My count is correct from the row before. So, were the double decreases put on the wrong "side" of the 11 pattern? I know they help with the shape and hate to just leave out the second double if needed. Did anyone else run into this?
Thanks

if you use markers there is a good chance that one has moved. count the stitches between the markers.

It doesn't look like the person that came up with the pattern is going to answer any of the comments, which is very unfortunate. I have not been knitting long and I love this shawl but like just about everyone else I am having a problem with the chart. When I printed the pattern there are many stitches in the chart that came out black, I am guessing that these should be just plain white and should be knit? I have finished the body of the shawl and have w03 stitches and I out in a life line in case I need to rip out but still having a hard time getting the shells started.

Ok, I can answer my own question. Those are not stitches. If you count, you will see, you just begin where the graph begins and you will have the correct number of stitches. I have looked at a few other graphs since then, and see that that is the case.

sorry, I reread and maybe not clear
K2, then start the pattern, ignoring the black like it is not even there, continue to middle, move marker, K middle, move marker, and continue the pattern over, omitting the K2, do it at the end.

Hi,
Beautiful pattern, but you might want to revise the stitch count for when you start the shells pattern. If, for half the shawl, it's 2 border stitches + 8 repeats + 13 additional stitches, that's

2 + 88 + 13 = 103

Double that and add 1 for the center stitch and you come up with 207, not 203 for when you start the shells. I checked and double-checked to make sure that I hadn't just skipped a couple rows, but I'm pretty sure that I haven't miscounted.

Marielle Pinheiro on craftsy.com

It's actually easily remedied though-- just get rid of those decreases in the non-repeat part of row 1 and it works out fine with 203 stitches. Cheers!

What I actually like to know is: Do you pick-up stitches along the sides of the main body for the shell part? At the end of the 203 stitches, do I bind-off as explained for the shells part? Please help me understand this pattern better.

I have completed 100 rows which comes out to only to 201 stitches, what have I done wrong & how do I correct? I also don't know where or how to start the shell pattern. Do I start with row 27 & work down to row 1? Does 1st (27) row start with yarn over & how can you knit 28 rows when chart is giving 27. Perhaps I have myself very confused but have read directions over & over. Please help!!!!

You must have forgotten 2 YO somewhere. Did you count your stitches at the end of each right row? Check your pattern to see where you're missing holes. As for the chart, once you have your 203 stitches, you simply continue the next row with the first row of the chart. Hope this help.

NR-I had the same question. When you look at Row 1 of the shell, there are the K2 and then 14 blank spaces before you start the shell. Do you skip stitches? That does not make sense to me. Is my computer missing something that should be in that space? That same "blank" space continues, narrowing to the end of the shell pattern. I am almost to row 100 and will need to know what to do next. HELP!

This is my first time lace knitting. I love the shawl and don't want to make any mistakes. I am on row 22 and still confused on where the lace edging comes in. In reading the pattern it does not tell you how to start the lace edging so not sure if I should be doing the main body (written piece) and the shell (charted piece) at the same time. Please help me to understand so I don't get too far and have to rip it all out.

Hi! I realized too that the pattern is missing a few instructions. But there it goes: You start with the body part (written instructions) until you reach the 203 stitches, then simply continue with the shell chart. The result comes in when blocking the piece... I hope this helps!

I have to agree with the others here who got lost with the edge. I ended up copying the repeat into excel and adjusting the number of stitches there because the finished body didn't match up with the chart that is very confusingly presented so I dumped my adjusted chart. into excel and copied the repeat until it reflected the number if stitches I had finishing the body. The way the chart is presented poorly. The shorter longside is what attaches to the body which is upside down from the way it's presented. This is a no-brainer the designer could easily have done for us. even so, the point there the two edges of the chart come together do not continue the central single knit stitch with yo's on either side the whole way so add k1 when turning the corner as the yo's for the increase are added. It's too bad the photos don't include a good shot of the point knitted up. Charting showing what the corner should be would have been nice too. I'm figuring this is a freebie to get us to report the problems so she can fix it then charge for it. I wouldn't mind so much if she at least said so so we knew to beware if things didn't work out and it would be nice if she gave us a pattern with the bugs worked out for our trouble. As this was my first adventure in lace, while I've been forced to learn a lot quickly, it would have been nice to know that in addition to the usual challenges wrenches were a possiblility also. As my first time also at Craftsy, I'm not impressed.

I found I needed to knit another round of the main body to get enough stitches for the beginning of the shell pattern.
Now I am on the shell part but I don't understand how to do it. The chart either does not read like any other chart I have used or I am doing something wrong. I know each row increases, but the chart shows the same number per half. I am ending up with too many stitches before I begin the repeats. I hope I am explaining myself well enough. Please Help!!:)

I'm confused. If I start with the main body of the shawl, and knit until there are 203 stitches, where and how do I do the shells edging? I'm sure I've missed something simple, but before I get far off the track ( I'm on row 24 or the main body pattern, I need some help! thank you!

Also there is one pink stripe at the left edge but shouldn't it be two knit stitches? It's such a pretty pattern, I'd love to finish it.

I need some help, too. I'm doing the main body of the shawl, but how and where does the shell pattern come in? It looks like it will be "attached to the main body, but somehow I don't think that is right. I'd hate to get all the way to 203 stitches on the needle and then have to rip it all out. I'm usually so visual. But I can't get in my mind how the shells pattern lines up with the main body. Ugh!

I hope my shawl will have points like the sample. I used a cotton yarn, so don't expect it to expand much with the blocking. It is not small, as one perso. Said, but not big enough for a tall or square-shouldered person. Donnna in sc
