I am really surprised... I thought most knitters routinely read/used patterns from both sides of the ocean. Maybe it's an Australian trait that we're culturally ambidextrous and subscribe to mags from the US and Europe, so the abbreviations, etc., don't seem so confusing.For download issues, try double-clicking on the shawl itself; it should open a separate box that says "Thank you for purchasing this pattern [a technical untruth] download this pattern" It should then be in your "download" folder.. .
I can't down load the pattern ...... help any ideas please
What is the difference between k2tog and k2tosg?
I looked t hru this entire pattern and did not see K2tosg.. It means knit 2 together.
I just don't get row 8 on the lazy zig zag shawl. Please make me understand the row. I have been knitting for 25 years and I just don't get it. Thanks you!

I am totally lost with the abreviations..... I think this in American, is it possible to put it into English and explain what the abreviations are please. Thankyou.i
I wish someone would help me on this.
K = Knit (So K5 means knit 5 stitches)SSK = Slip, Slip KnitYou can also look up the glossary on Craftsy to find common knitting terms
Thank you, Beth!:)Violet, I'm using abreviations that I thought are common. I've just uploaded the new version and this one includes charts. I hope that will be helpful.
Trying to work out what SSK means in the pattern. Please help!!
Slip, slip and knit... It should be
Thanks for that hian. I was trying slip stitch knitways, only to find that it wasn't working. Initiall, I thought it was pass slip stitch over, then realised the initials were all wrong. I'll give it a go and see how I get on. I'm very hopeful.I'm using cobweb wool that i had originally got to knit a shawl with, but the pattern was getting too complicated for me, then I saw this pattern, thinking that I could at least get a shawl done. Many thanks.
Thank you, Hian!SSK is a left leaning decrease; it's two sts knitted together, but with the right one on top.
No matter how I try I cannot get the details of this pattern so I may print it.....HELP!!
I get an error message when I try to download this pattern. Please help. Would like to get yarn for it during the yarn hop April 27th!
Can you give me an idea of how many stitches were cast on for the size shawl that is shown in the pattern photo, please?
Looking at the picture, it looks like there are 6 repeats of the pattern, so 99 stitches were cast on. [ (15*6)+9 = 99].
Got a hint of what size needles?
It says size 8 in the pattern, front page at bottom.
Does anyone know what knid of parn was used to make the examples with that gorgeous tones of blues?
Kind of yarn.
Alize angora gold batik design. You have to order it overseas...
Yes I get an error message also. Someone please help!!!
I had to go back and reopen it without Facebook, only way to get it to work.
Does anyone know if chunky weight yarn would work with this pattern?
I knitted it with a little thicker yarn than the pattern calls for. It was a little heavier, so it was more for winter months than a summer shawl. But, I used a ombr type yarn and it turned out really pretty. Just lays a little different.
love this shawl!I am going to use my handspun Alpaca in natural shades to get the light & dark tonal effect
In one of the views of the Lazy-Zig-Zag Shawl, the yarn is a variegated style with light thru dark turquoises turning to light thru kind of a cherry color lilacs. It is a color combination I have been trying to find! Can you tell me what the yarn is?
Love this pattern. Made it on a cross country trip recently and enjoyed every minute of it.
Love this shawl but want the blue tones color yarn shown in the picture. Is it possible to buy that color? Thank you.
YES! I bought the yarn wiht my Pay Pal account through the company listed in the directions...it is a combo of mohair, wool and acrylic; it was shipped from Turkey and took just a few days. I found several lovely shades and bought three different ones: the same blue as in the picture, one that goes from white to grey to black, and one that is gorgeous in shades of white going to fuscia and then to green. I just made the lasty one and it is stunning!.
I made a shorter, and thinner one for my dear friend (3 repeat wide). I found the repeat of stitches easy to remember, so it was a great pattern to carry around, as I dd not need to carry around instructions at all. My yarn changes color from plum, to lilac, then green, to white, and back to green, lilac and plum. I started and ended on the plum color and it is stunning! Forgot to take a picture before I mailed it to her for her birthday, though... Thanks to the designer for a beautiful but easy scarf!
That sounds lovely! What's the yarn called, do you remember?
Sorry... I bought the yarn at Walmart... It's one of those "unknown fibers" type I found a few years back... Had enough for the scarf, a cardigan, and I still have a few balls left... I just had a look at Knitpick's yarns, and it would be similar to their Chroma yarn (fingering weight, but mine is a bit more "mohairy"). They don't have the same color though... I read on a comment above tht someone purchased the yarn thru a link on the pattern page... Good luck!
Just wondering if the teacher is left handed? Cause my mother was right handed and she had a really hard time teaching me anything cause when she handed it to me it would always be reversed!!!
Hi LaurieI'm right handed.When I did it I replaced the SSK with a S1,K1,PSSO decrease.I think it looks about the same.I hope that makes it easier to handle.
