Assembly:flower panel
Sew 8 flowers together in a straight line, using 2 adjacent petals of each flower and the 2 adjacent petals on the opposite side of each flower. (see photo).
**With right side facing and starting at one end of long panel of flowers, slip stitch into center of last petal. Ch1, sc in same space. Ch5, sc into center of next petal (on same flower), ch5, *dtr into stitch that binds this flower to the next flower, ch5, sc into next petal (second flower now), ch5, sc into center of next petal (of same flower), ch5* repeat from * to * 6 more times, but omit the last ch5. Fasten off.**
Repeat from ** to ** on other side of flower panel.

Final Assembly:
Note: Make sure that the flower panel and half-flowers are all facing in the same direction (RS) when sewing into place. The triangular sections are reversible.
Using the photograph as your guide, sew each long side of the flower panel to a shorter side of each of the triangle sections, making sure that you choose the shorter edge of each triangle so that the longer edge will remain at the top of the shawl. Each triangle consists of two short sides and 1 long side. The long side of each triangle is each half of the top of the shawl. Each triangle has a short side that will be sewn to the flower panel, and a short side that will become the bottom “V” of the shawl. This edge is where the half-flowers will be attached.
Sew each of the half-flowers along the long sides of the triangular pieces, (see photo).
After the first half-flower is sewn into place, the first stitch of each remaining half-flower should be snugly sewn right next to the previously sewn half-flower.
With right side facing, sc evenly along top of shawl, then reverse sc back along same edge. Fasten off.  Wash, block and dry.

This is one of the most poorly written patterns I have ever seen! Does anyone know where I can find this pattern charted? Thanks.

Doy you use just one strand of yarn for the sides? It says double on the flowers, but not for the sides, so assume they are one strand.

Pleased that I am not the only having trouble with this pattern, (and I have have to make 2 for my granddaughters). Finished as I thought then tried to work out how to put it together......... Then I realised that I had made a mistake crocheting the flowers. Can anyone help me with the last part of round 3: whole flower. Can not understand where I am going wrong. Confused Jenny......UK

Okay, I've got it crocheted & now to put it together!!! I can't see totally from the picture to tell how to piece it together. And sewing it together instead of crocheting it; is not right. I have a row of flowers, 19 half flowers & 2 pieces of something to put where? It's not written properly for anyone to follow. I don't recommend this to anyone. If there were pics to see how to put it together, it might then be an Elegant Flower Shawl. Right now it's just yarn crocheted for nothing.

By my calculations, 1000 yards at 3500 yards per pound (ypp) would be about 130g of 100% superfine merino wool. 1000 / 3500 = 0.2857 454g x 0.2857 = 129.39g Hope this helps!

Can anyone else tell me how much yarn you bought for this. The directions have 1000 yards Sample Henry"s Attic 2ply Pony, then 100% superfine merino wool, 3500 ypp. I would appreciate an explaination for this. Thank you for your quick response. I am making this for my daughters birthday.


Apr 27, 2013

Please tell me if you need 1000 yards or 3500 yards of the yarn? Thank you
