I went to the website listing for the Yarn Substitution Chart it's not there (


Oct 14, 2014

Since the yarn has been discontinued and the link to the substitution chart does not work; could anyone offer some suggestions on a comparable yarn? What weight was the cozi?

Could someone tell me what sp stands for in this pattern. I have decided from some other sites that it means space However in this pattern it doesn't make sense. Could someone do a visual tutorial on this please

I had a worsted yarn, cotton from Lion Brand, & I found that the "triangle" forming was VERY narrow & long .. I didn't use the substitution chart 'cause I didn't have a bulkier yarn. Is there a way I can crochet this pattern with a heavier but "leaner" yarn that will still create that simple triangle that is this shawl. I'm making it for a sick aunt who's in the hospital so I want to make it in cotton, w/ an open weave like picot or dc-3st-dc-type stitching. Can anyone help? I have 2 skeins of 5oz/236yds of Lion Cotton yarn that will create a 16 row, 16 stitch to = 4" gauge.
