The finished item seems to have some sort of seam for sleeves but no mention of it on the pattern

Ref: Goddess Shawl__Going from row 15 to 16 is a problem. There are 3 ch6 spaces before you get to a ch3 space of increase shell. I have all my counts correct in row 15. Please send a correction, I'm almost done. This is for a wedding and I have 3 more to make:(

Hi there, For specific pattern-related questions, we suggest contacting the pattern designer directly (Caron Yarn). There is a link in the byline above (below the project name). We also suggest posting your question on Facebook - our fans love to help one another. Thanks!

I had no problem and I mad 5 count careful,its easy to skip somethings.God bless your project

I am stuck on row eleven and no matter what I try it is just not working. I need help with this could some one show me step by step how to do this row so I can continue on. Thanks

help please I'm stuck with row 7 & 8 row 8 has 24 clusters but I have only 22 ..

maybe you forgot cluster in the beginning and end of row

I've made two of these and just deciding on a new colour before starting on the next. I made a smaller version for my 8yo daughter by using trebles (US double crochet) in stead of the double trebles and it scaled down beautifully. Thanks for a great pattern.

Why doesn't the pattern indicate how many picots you make during Row 10? It only mentions 24 clusters. Kindof leaves me hanging.

23 picots in Row 10 BTW (=

In response to the confusion over Row 10 and the 11 triples, you just skip them...it's that easy! Check the pictures to see for yourself (=

I'm curious about Row 1...do I end the row with sl st at the top of the ch-4 and then turn OR just turn without sl st at the ch-4? So I guess I'm not working a circle??

re: Row 1. You are not going to be working in a circle but you are working out of a semi-circle at the base of the back of the neck.

help stuck on row 10 what do you do with the 11 trebles from 8 and 9 am I missing something? help it was going so well and looking great! can somrone tell me what I am missing?

I am having the same problem.. Where is the corrected pattern?

You aren't missing anything--just skip over the single trebles and don't ask why--only the designer knows for sure (o=

I am done with the shawl, but I am stuck at the edging, I have no idea how to pivot, can someone help?

Does anyone happen to have a picture of the picot stitch portion of row 10? I understand how to do the stitch in general, but I don't understand "slip st in top of last st made"

the stich you slst in is right at ege bottom of your ch 6 ex sc ch 6 you slst in sc did I explain all right? hope so

I'm still lost on the edging. Are there any diagrams/videos...anything to help with just the edging???? Greatly appreciated.

I'm nearly to the edging. I admit I've had a couple of do overs along the way. I just wondered if you got any response to your request for help.

I'm a big girl, so I carried the edging about 20 more rows than the pattern called for to get the coverage and drape I wanted. But if someone could tell me how to do my increases in the pattern before the "pineapples", I would love that alternative too. kat in sNJ

row 15 is an increase row could u not make a fewv more increase rows then make sure u keep count on rest of rows u should be able to do this I have not tried but it should work as long as u don't lose count its worth a try

I'm almost finished with the last row of edging on this and I must say the only trouble I've had with it is when I did not trust the pattern (rows 10 and 17) or when I didn't read carefully (row 10) and possibly once when I had one too many glasses of wine ;). This is a gorgeous shawl! I used 2nd Time Cotton by Knit One Crochet Too (a recycled cotton/acrylic blend) and I've shown it as I've been completing it and gotten many compliments. It's a very easy pattern when you trust it and it comes along very quickly with the tall treble stitches. I started 8 days ago and will finish this morning. Thank you for the pattern!

how do you make a folder?

I made this in a blue self striping boucle yarn - absolutely beautiful - you can see the pattern in the boucle, which I've found is very hard to accomplish with most patterns. I love the drape and the pineapples - delicate without being too "old fashioned". Caron has some very beautiful patterns that they offer for free. I'll make a few more of these for the fall.

Absolutely love it! Am working on my third shawl. My friends call it an Angel Shawl cause it looks like wings.... Anita

This is a lovely shawl and I'm finally almost finished. So much fun to crochet. I have a question on the Edging - second row. It states "ch 3, slip st in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in next ch-3 space" - I have chained 3, but don't know how to proceed to chain 4 for the beginning of TrCl. Do I do that in the slip stitch ch3 space (and have 7 chains in a row - or is there a stitch in the next chain before the ch 4 start of the TrCl? Thank you.

hey did you ever get a reply to this?

Hi, love this pattern thanks! It's so quick to do I made it as a gift for my sister in a week in any spare moments i could grab between work, kids and socialising. I'm starting one for me now! Just a note for any other non-American crocheters out there; be aware that American patterns are not the same as English ones; the stitch names are the same but generally refer to different stitches! (eg: American sc= English dc , etc) If in doubt, check this out in a book where they actually show the stitches being worked and you'll see what I mean. To anyone having trouble working this shawl, read the pattern closely row by row and don't try to second-guess; do just what it says. I found it to be absolutely correct. All the best; happy crocheting!

Can someone help me with these directions to the Goddess Shawl??? On row 16 it says Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space, [sc in next ch-6 space of pineapple, ch 6] twice, *[trCl in next trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3] twice, trCl in next trCl, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space, [sc in next ch-6 space of pineapple, ch 6] twice; repeat from * across to last shell, trCl in next trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in last trCl, turn37 clusters, and 12 pineapples. Do I really skip all the first pineapple stitches??? That creates a large hole. Any help would be appreciated. On my piece I have the beg-trCl and then it is the pineapple, then the cluster of 3 tr-cl, then another pineapple.

oH wow think I got it LOL as I was reading other people had the same problem. Had to redo row 15. Thanks anyway :O)

Have just completed Goddess Shawl, and loved every minute of it. Can somebody tell me has the one shown in pattern been caught somewhere to make it appear to have sleeves ??

Yes, the way it's worn in the picture is a bit misleading isn't it? It would be easy enough to add a fastening at the front and catch it in under the arms with a stitch on each side once you see how it fits you, as it does look pretty worn that way. I love the one I made so much that I want to make at least another 2!

Love the shawl, but could someone please tell me if there is an error on 11. Row 10: Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch5,sc in 5th ch of next 9ch space, picot, ch5, trCl in next trCl, ?picot?, trCl in next trCl, ch5, sc in 5th ch of next 9ch space, picot, ch5, trCl in next trCl; repeat from * across, turn - 24 clusters. The error is where I have placed ? I have followed it twice as printed but it looks wrong, help please.

Have just done it 3rd time and looking ok, so my mistake, whoops !! Sorry.

This beautiful shawl is on my must make list.Shall make it as soon as its cool enough to pull out my woolen yarns.

is row 16 correct? it doesn't make sense

i just got my answer on page 2, row 15 start & end are tr cluster SHELLS

beautiful

How much yarn is needed to crochet this???

9ozs of yarn needed to make this shawl

When I got confused with the instructions I enlarged (ctrl+ to make larger) and ctrl_ to reduce) and you can look at the photos and count rows and also see the placement and I had no problems. It turned out Beatiful and it looks just like the picture. Hope this helps

Thanks, I didn't know you could do that.

is there a way to PRINT the comments as well?? There are some good notes here from prev hookers that I would like to keep with the pattern.

tets

I am still having trouble crocheting the goddess shawl. Can someone contact me and give me a talking to about the instructions or a site I can go on the internet that I can read about it. thank you,

why cant I print the first pg to all of your paterns?

@suezannmiller 8337743, We have noticed a few users having a similar problem, though the patterns are printing fine on our end. We are currently monitoring this issue and apologize for any inconvenience it may have caused you. For the time being, we recommend copying and pasting patterns into a Word document and printing that way. Many users prefer to print this way so they can adjust font, delete text, etc. Thank you for your patience and understanding! --Editors of FaveCrafts

for Row no. 10, the picot goes on top of the first trCl...just chain 6 and slip stitch back into the top of the trCl...so there is one picot in the middle of each 9chain and one between each trcl...thats how i did it and its come perfectly in the next row also...so I'm assuming its ok :) hope this helps...

I, too, had trouble with row 16 and redid row 15 three times before I checked the website to see if anyone else was having difficulty. That is where I discovered my mistake regarding the beg. tr cluster shell secret. I have learned to slow down and read the instructions more carefully. Thanks for your help. The project is now almost completed.

why do I have so much trouble with row 16? The row after the increase shell row. Am I over thinking this row?br br Carol Moorebr

@lollipop2281 8396341, I'm sorry to hear of your trouble. I have two options for you: 1. You can contact the pattern designer directly for help. The designer is specified in the byline. 2. I might also suggest that you try posting your question to our sites Facebook page. It is monitored by the editor and is a great resource for helpful tips and suggestions from our Facebook friends; perhaps they can offer some guidance! Here is the link: http://www.facebook.com/FaveCrafts --Editors of FaveCrafts

Row 8: Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 5, trCl in next trCl, *ch 3, tr in next tr, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 5, trCl in next trCl; repeat from * across, turn24 clusters and 11 tr ok I am not making 24 clusters and such. I am messing up here somehow. anyone have issues there or can explain to me how I may have? this is my first time not making a scarf :)

Are you ending up with 22 instead of 24? Perhaps you missed that the first and last clusters in row 7 are actually cluster shells?

Hi gcarletti 2963972, It looks like the shawl is just pinned to shape in those places. It's an optional addition. You could also sew it in those spots to create sleeves. Thanks! -Editors of FaveCrafts

Your shawl appears to be fastened together under the arms, to form sleeves, the pattern does not show this.The shawl is also fastened in the front, and the pattern does not show this either.

If you are having trouble on Row 16 go back and redo Row 15. I made the mistake of just doing Beg trCl instead of a Beg trCl SHELL. So in the end there are supposed to be two clusters instead of one. Small mistake but I found where everyone is getting stuck on this row.

thank you, i just got my answer

Here are some clarifications that helped me so far... I have just completed Row 12. Row 7 - is the first time we see the Beginning Treble Cluster SHELL - as opposed to the Beginning Treble Cluster. The SHELL is twice as big as the cluster! The Treble Cluster SHELL is written (trCl, ch 3, trCl). It is helpful to circle all clusters, shells, and increases in the pattern so you don't accidently miss them. Later on in Row 15 (the pattern does call attention to it) there is a treble cluster shell INCREASE and it is written ([trCl, ch3]twice, trCl). Row10 - the second picot is made in the top of the next tr, from the row below. This worked as I completed Row 11 with no problems. When I first started crocheting, following the directions used to be confusing with a pattern like this so I would write out in long hand the directions, limiting just one instruction to a line and if the abbreviations are confusing for you - write out the whole word. I also would recommend a size "I" hook for this pattern if I ever made it again. I remember what it was like to be a beginner. I was self-taught so I had lots of problems but no one to help me. Now with computers, others are just a click away - I think in the interest of carrying on the craft and what it means to love crochet we should extend ourselves to each other happily... that's just how I see it.

I am making the goddess shawl and am stuck on row 16. Do i skip the ch6 and pineapple and ch6 then sc in the ch3 of trcl increase? it seems too far but that is the next ch3 i have. What do i do?

I have just received information about this Goddess Shawl from Carrie at Caron (www.naturallycaron.com). They published the original pattern under "Aphrodite Shawl". Carrie says: We have had this pattern reviewed many times. The most common error people make is to confuse the Treble Cluster and Treble Cluster Shell. Also note, when a ch-3 space is referred to, it is created in the previous row whenever a treble cluster shell is worked. Notice the definition for treble cluster shells (below), they all include a ch-3. Sometimes a crocheter may accidentally work the treble clusters, not treble cluster SHELLS. Beg-trCl shell: Beginning treble cluster shell(Beg-trCl, ch 3, trCl) in indicated stitch. trCl shell: Treble cluster shell(trCl, ch 3, trCl) in indicated stitch. trCl shell-inc: Treble cluster shell increase([trCl, ch 3] twice, trCl) in indicated stitch. I hope this clarifies this pattern for all of you. Helen

For further information about this pattern, please contact the designer at Naturally Caron. Their website is: http://www.naturallycaron.com/index.html Thank you, -The Editors of FaveCrafts

After reading the comments I see that Row 10 has puzzled many of us. Can anyone tell me where the picot goes?

I am almost through with my second one and have not found any mistakes, just take it one step at a time. My husband thought the first one was so beautiful, he told me to go buy a dress to go with it!

Along with several others here I too found that row 10 is NOT CLEAR OR CORRECT in it's instructions. There is no way this shawl comes out right and as it should with the way the instructions are given for row 10!!..and I gave it several attempts at trying before giving up! It's a shame that whoever posted this pattern has not checked back to read the comments to give assistance, or that those who claim they managed to complete this would kindly share and assist in understanding of row 10!! As a result I have now moved on to a much prettier and very well written pattern! :)

I made this in less than a week in my spare time with two small kids. I found it to be quite clear, and one of the easier patterns I've done. I really don't understand what the confusion is, because if you read what you're supposed to do it works exactly right. It's a beautiful shawl!

hi ifound row 10 is not clear also why u dont send a diagram for each project it will be more easy for us thank uuuuuuuuu

I think the reason there's trouble on row 10 is because row 9 is missing 2trCl in each trCl because by the end of row 9 there are supposed to be 24trCl, and 11 tr. I'm just afraid to alter it until there's been some sort of official correction because I want it to fit correctly. HELP!

Hi, I'm having trouble with row 10 also! I have flown through the pattern up till now but I am not understanding the placement of the picot... I get that the 1st one goes in the 1st sc, but on the next one, does that go into the next trCL? after the 1st picot the pattern says "ch 5, trCL in next trCL, *picot, trCL in next trCL, ch5, sc in 5th chain of next ch-9 space, picot, ch5, trCL in next trCL; repeat.... so from the * where does THAT picot go, in the top of the trCL you just did or does it go into the next trCL before you do the trCL??? Please help I'm so confused and really was loving this pattern until now!!!!!!

I'm stuck on row 16. It says " Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, " but the row above didn't have ch-3's until the trCl shell INCREASE. Where is the first sc placed? After the Beg-trCl, I've got a ch-6 and then the bottom of a pineapple.

Goddess Shawl is the third name given on favecrafts.com for this shawl that I have found in less than a week. However, this time I now have a designer name - by Karen Drouin for Naturally Caron. As I am relatively new to favecrafts.com can anyone tell me if it is customary to keep changing the name for a popular pattern. I have patterns that date back to the 40's and never saw one with a name change and ran again.

I've tried and tried row 8. Not coming up with the 24 clusters and 11 triples. Only 12 clusters and 6 triples. What am I missing?

Just wanted to say thanks to DS's post on july 29. I appreciate your picot stitch tip. When put together with the photos it all made sense! Woo Hoo! This is fun! How many projects do I have going now? Hmm. Never a dull moment.

I am making this shawl for my dear Aunt who is going to have knee surgery this month.I need help with # 17 (row 16): Beg-trCl in first trCl,ch3,sc in next ch-3 space (does this mean I skip the ch-6,the [sc in next ch-6 sp of pineapple,ch-6] 3 times.the ch-6 ,and the first trCl of shell increase ? If I do this it is like I am making a loop (arm opening?) on this row.It doesn't look big enough to be an arm opening though.I would so deeply appreciate any help with this.I have to get it finished and on its way by Aug.9th.Thank You. Wanda (Sunnyskies11@aol.com)

I used James G. Brett's marble yarn in amythest and it is so beautiful. This pattern worked up so quickly and I had no problem with the directions. I'm going to make several others for Christmas gifts.

I am a seasoned knitter but REALLY REALLY want to do this suppose it can be transfer to a knitting pattern???? Suppose I could learn to do this? Sounds very very hard to you who have done this for years!!! l so maybe better transfer to knitting pattern....for me???? help??? knittingDeva

Looking at the directions for the picot stitch......it's not worked into the row below. It says to chain 6 then slip stitch into top of last stitch made. So in #11 (row 10) where it says chain 5, sc in 5th chain of ch 9 space. That next picot is worked into the top of that sc that you just made.....not into the base. Does that make sense? I'll try to be more clear if you need me to be......happy stitching!

o.k. I completed the shawl by Saturday and wore it over a brown dress. I got numerous compliments. I also brought the shawl to my knit/crochet group and everyone absolutely loved it. I found the shawl to come more fuller than the picture showed and as I posted previously, I would have used a smaller hook. I have been crocheting for many, many years and this is one of the hardest projects I have made. I had to be in complete silence to follow the instructions. As I said in my previous post, Row 10 was confusing. I worked it out with where to put the picot; but, to be honest, I can't tell you what I actually did. All I can say is that the finished product was beautiful!!! P.S. if I have time, I'll sit down and figure out where the picot goes on Row 10 and post it. good luck everyone!!!

Did you ever figure out what you did right??? I am stuck on row 10 - where does the picot go after the asterisk?

I am making thus shawl and have gotten to Row 10. It says ch 5, trCl in next trCl, *picot, trcCl in next trCl, ch5, where does the picot go? Is it made in the 5th ch of 9 space? If so why doesn't it say so? can anyone help me as I am making this for my 2 aunts who are in their 70's.

Just started tonight, got to row 11. No problem yet. So far the instructions are very good and easy to follow. Hey, and I'm German... Until recently American crochet instructions were like Chinese for me... :-) What is it after row 6 that causes you problems? Is it the shell? The shell is made of 2 clusters with chain in between. Let me know. Maybe I can help.

I am making this Goddess Shawl. I find it confusing that each step is numbered and does not coincide with the Rows. Anyway, I got stumped with #11, Row 10. The instructions didn't indicate where to put the picot. So far, I am up to #17, Row 16. It seems to be coming out right. I guess I won't know until I finish it. I'll try to remember to come back on here and post more comments. I know one thing. I'm sorry I didn't start this shawl with an "I" hook instead of a "J". I guess I crochet loosely. I found it a little hard to check the gauge. I'm hoping to finish this by Saturday as I plan to wear it out. I hope my comments have helped you.

Has anyone tried to make this Goddess Shawl using these instruction and did you have trouble with the instruction? Looking at the instruction and counting the rows on the picture something is not right. I do not know if it is the instruction or what, I need help I'm at row 6 instuctions and can't get any futher. Help please if you can.
