This may be too late for you luvlyd2005 1684885 but this is the link from the website https//www.yarnspirations.com/on/demandware.static == /-/Sites-master-catalog-spinrite/default/dw20657d6 == 8/PDF/BRC0622-005287M.pdf but they are the same as written above. They read fairly easy for me and not sure what the issue is. I have a little experience and I think I would not have any trouble.

At first I thought that is article took a lot of skeins for completion. The yarn used is a relative small skein and not expensive at all. When I clicked today the link that the yarn was for sale was not longer available. However a quick google search and I was able to locate the necessary yarn. It was on sale to boot too.

Hi, this is such a lovely shawl and would love to do it, but I am having a hard time understanding this pattern. I am an experienced crocheter. If you could please show a video, or pic of how this particular stitch is done on this pattern. Thanks for any info or help with this.

I do a prayer shawl ministry at my church. We have been doing this for about a year now. We have made many people happy with the shawls that we make. This pink shawl will do nicely for one of the prayer shawls. I will make it very soon. Thank you for all of the great patterns. I love to knit and crochet and I am always knitting or crocheting something on a daily basis.

I am totally lost on this pattern. On 4. but still row 3, these directions have me so confused, I am an experienced crocheter but not getting this at all, can you help explain this better, ot may be a video?

I am interested in some of your patterns, but do not understand some of the abbreviations in both the knit and crochet patterns. How can I get help with these?

@jbrose2 You can look up abbreviations by visiting the designers website. I know Bernat has a section on their site devoted to knitting and crochet abbreviations. If you still need help, feel free to post something on our facebook page (www.facebook.com/favecrafts) and one of our other readers might be able to help you! Thanks for the comment!

Yoh and draw up a loop. Yoh and draw through 2 loops on hook) 3 times in next ch-1 sp. Yoh and draw through all 4 loops on hook cluster made. I can't figure out how to do this. I have tried and tried and it doesn't look right to me. Help, please!

You should have one loop on your hook. Yarn over and insert it into the next stitch and yarn over and pull through. Now you have 3 loops. Yarn over again and pull through 2 loops on your hook, leaving 1 still remaining on your hook. Repeat 2 more times (for a total of 3 times) all in the same ch1 space from the previous row. You should have 4 loops remaining on your hook. Yarn over and pull through all 4 loops. Hope that helps! You're making a cluster, so it will be a little bulkly.

I am totally new to crocheting & knitting that said, would anyone know if a beginner could make this lovely shawl I love the color! Thanks anyone who answers my question. Emily

Hi Emily, As long as you know your stitches and can follow a pattern I do not see any problem with you being able to create this shawl. Just go slow and count your stitches and watch your tension. Good luck. If you can think it you can do it!

My mother will love this shawl once I finish it.

Oh how sweet. I think I'll give this a try. I just made a poncho/capelet for my small daughter - maybe I should make this one for me ... http://www.HandmadeByAnnabelle.Blogspot.com


I love this site thank you for providing free patterns. I have 2 handicap kids and I have spent a lot of time in the hospital with them. If you have ever done this you know one thing that it is very cold in a hospital. There isn't much to do but wait. I challange anybody who knows how to make something for the childrens hospitals. A doll, kids blanket or thinking for the moms and dads out there one of these shaws. I know somethings like this would have been very usefull for me. I love to make stuff to donate to the childrens hositals they can always use it.

@rissasalescom What a beautiful idea. There are several charities out there that will gladly accept donated shawls, hats, scarves, and afghans.

I have read this over and over, Row 2 and can't make it work? My work is cruving? Like it has too many sts . I understand it up to the part where I should rept. Turning ch 4 is first dc. 1 dc in nxt dc. (Ch 1. miss nxt ch-1 sp. 1 dc in next dc)twice. Now the cluster is in the ch 1 space. 1dc in nxt dc. (Ch 1. Miss nxt ch-1 sp. 1dc in nxt dc 3 times(that means in the same dc?)that is a shell? right? Now Rep. so now I do cluster 1 dc. ch 1 miss nxt ch 1 sp. 3 dc in nxt dc. that is how I see I tired it and it just curves is that right? janet
