If there is a knitting pattern for anything similar to the above you would have at least one enthusiastic reader who would love to knit it. A big thank you if you can and if not, I shall keep looking for a similar pattern.

Karen - Thanks for your comment. I did finally figure out the directions and have the shawl almost done. I found that one has to really study the meaning of the directions. I don't think they are particularly clear. The shawl is turning out well.

Step 8 is confusing. What is hdc? and why not explain in the stitches section. I have 33 hdc (hdc? half double crochet?)

Row 7. got me at first too. "[hdc in next ch-1 space, ch 1] twice". It means do the hdc-ch1 in each of the next two ch sps. You have the beginning ch3, ch1, hdc in next ch1 sp, ch 1, hdc in next ch1 sp, ch1, hdc-ch1-hdc together in next ch 1 sp., and repeat. The hdc-ch1-hdc all in the same ch1 sp is every third stitch. the sequence stops with the last ch1 and the last stitch is a hdc in the top of the turning. chain. Hope this helps 'cause this is not an official reply. cheers!

I'm stuck at Row 7 (#8) I ended up with way more than 44 hdc. The repeats are very unclear. It's such a lovely shawl - I really want to finish it.

I never received a reply to my problem, My problem was posted, but where is the answer? br I'm stuck at Row 7 (8) the repeats are very unclear and I am ending up with way more than 44 hdc. I see there was another person with the same problem - but where is the answer?

I am stuck aat#7 (row 8) * [ ]twice** does that mean that I repeat what is in brackets 2 times? ........I keep getting more than 44 hdc. Could you break ea process down & e-mail. It is a beautiful shawl & I cant't wait to finish.

I love this pattern. Not only would it be great for Valentine's Day, but it would be a great accessory to wear in the fall or for a Christmas party!

why can i not translate your side from english to danish?
