What are you most proud of? The short rows worked!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Short rows really do disappear in the garter stitch, so you don't have to worry about the more complicated wrap and turns. Just turning worked out fine.

I have a question..on the 10 row lace pattern, do you just repeat the stitches in each row til the end? Thanks

Yes. There are a few edge stitches that aren't in pattern, but you just keep repeating the lace pattern line across the shawl. After you finish all the rows of the pattern, you repeat them again four times to add length to the leaf pattern.

I made this shawl using 328 stitches instead of 248.... 4 stitches on each end and 64 extra stitches to do the lace pattern. The problem is when I started the short rows and tried to figure out stitch counts for rows 53 thru 56. I have ripped out 4 times. Any thoughts? I have asked Cascade for assistance but after 4 days have not received an answer. Argh!

I'll give you my best guess. I hope it works out and doesn't cause more frustration. Row 53: work 168 sts and turn. Then work row 54 the way it is described, just K8, K2tog, K4 and turn to work row 55 as written with K12, K2tog, K4 and turn. For row 56 which is repeated over and over until you get to the end of your stitches, K until the "end" where there is a gap in the stitches, K the last stitch together with the one on the other side of the gap. Then K 6 more and turn. I think this will keep the proportion of lace and garter sections about the same as in the pattern. I didn't do the math exactly though, so you may have to adjust and knit a few more, or fewer, stitches after the turn as you get closer to the end. If you change the number on each end so that they match, it will still have an even look to the curve. I hope I'm on track with this advice. Good luck!

Thanks! I'll give that a go and let you know how it turns out! I'm making the shawl as a gift and need to get it finished!

I'm curious to know. Did it work out? I made the pattern again but didn't change the stitch count. It didn't work out perfectly, but I don't know if it was me forgetting to count correctly or an error in the pattern.

I've been making this shawl from the kit that I purchased here. I've knit to gauge and have made not changes to the pattern, but don't have enough yarn to finish the shawl. Hoping Craftsy has some matching yarn for me!

I had that happen recently but got lucky and found a discontinued color by searching on the internet. Good luck!

I'll never buy a kit from Craftsy again. They're virtually unresponsive to my requests for help in finding the right dye lot. Yes, I bought another skein of yarn and am praying that the dye lot matches, but Craftsy never replied to my pleas.
