Having trouble printing pages 6-7 for the pattern Grace Kelly Bolero Shawl Crochet. All other pages print well.

Hi there, We suggest copying and pasting this pattern into Microsoft Word - that way you can control what you print and how it looks. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Thanks for the respond. All ready tried that. Really funny that it is just 6-7?

On the Paton's website this is called the "From the Middle Bolero". The downloadable pattern is 9 pages long and has what looks like some very helpful diagrams showing orientations and sizing differences.

is there a video for the Grace Kelly Bolreo Shawl? thank you

Hi there - We do not have a video to go with this project - we suggest crocheters contact Patons with any pattern-related questions. Thanks!

How do you increase for the larger sizes of this pattern. The directions say that the numbers in the brackets or for the larger sizes but surely those numbers cant be for all the sizes. Your help will be appreciated. Thank you

Hi there! This pattern was sent to us directly from Patons Yarn, so these are the exact instructions from their site. If you're confused or would like more information on how to put this pattern together, we suggest contacting Patons directly and asking for more information. They might be able to provide you with a chart or maybe even a video to help you create this pattern. Thanks!

I am not very experienced in crocheting but would love to make the Grace Kelly Bolero Shawl. I have a question about the instructions. Its about making the front and back. There is an abbreviation that I am not familiar with. Could you please explain to me what "rst" means. Your help will greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I am struggling to make this - the pattern for the fronts is very confusing and I can't tell whether I'm working it upwards, downwards, sideways or what! I have got stuck after the "proceed as follows" stages and have got wonky edges now that don't look right. Also, when I've got to the "shaping the armholes" row we are told previously to repeat the previous rows until it matches the back, ending at the "armhole edge" (which I can't tell which is which anyway) but then goes on to shape the armhole at the opposite end of the so-called "armhole edge". Help!!

Hi sterlingsop--Thanks for the comment. This pattern was sent to us directly from Patons Yarn, so these are the exact instructions from their site. If you're confused or would like more information on how to put this pattern together, we suggest contacting Patons directly and asking for more information. They might be able to provide you with a chart or maybe even a video to help you create this pattern.--Hope that helps! FC Editors

what does rst mean? in the first instruction for the back it says to ' join with a sl st to the rst ch to form a ring' is this an American term?

Hi heatherrannekemp--Good catch! That should actually say "first"! I'll change this right now. Thanks for bringing it to our attention! --FaveCrafts editor

I'm confused with Step 4 where it says, "Sl st in next dc and ch-2 sp." I think the dash before the 2 is confusing the meaning for me. Could you help me? I love this shawl and am trying to make it for my daughter. Thank you!!

Duanejones35 3090792 don't know if you have gotten your answer. It just means to sl st in the next dc & ch 2 sp.
