dragfly, I rate this project as intermediate. With that saying I had lots of adventurous beginners that were able to complete it with a just a little bit of effort. Now, I am in process of putting together a Craftsy Workshop for the Triangle Shawl, and in the workshop I take you every step of the way, in pictures on how to make this project. Also, when taking part of the workshop I'm there as your instructor and you can ask me any questions you might have. The workshop is coming soon. If you wish, I can let you know when is available.
