I am working on Lilaberry shawl, came to row 40, now not sure which row I should repeat. Am I correct to say row 15 for the repeat? Please advise. What rows do I follow for row 40 -58?

I need some help. The pattern, Sunny Day crochet dress, has no measurements for sizing. Please help. Thanks

I want to make the rugged bulky knit hat but can't find the yarn you used.It's been discontinued . What other yarn would work?Thank You

Hello Kristen....This is a beautiful shawl and I would love to make it for my daughter for her birthday. I am a little confused, however, you have listed 1000 yards Sample yarn with Henry's Attic the 2 ply Pony, then 100% superfine merino wool, 3500 ypp. Does this mean that you need 1000 yards and 3500 yards or do you need just the 1000 yards of yarn. Thanking you in advance for you response. Violet Allen 4/27/2013

Morning Kristen ... love your Elegant Flower Shawl! I want to make this for my BFF, she is a wonderfully curvy girl and would not want the flowers, just the lacing. If I only made the triangles by hooking really loose would that be large enough to fit on her shoulders. Your advice wud be greatly appreciated. Thanx so much!
