This shawl is a mixed media piece and that makes it too cool! The use of ribbon, yarn fringe and maybe even strips of lace comprise the fringe you see. The alpaca yarn is luscious and the finished piece requires you to wash in baby shampoo to then block it. She looks great wearing it!

This is a beautiful shawl. I think it will be fairly easy to make. It would be a really nice gift but I may just want it for myself. I don't think I'd use ribbon. It would make a big difference what kind of ribbon to use. I wouldn't go to all the work to have a ribbon that unravels or shreds. It would be nice with a fine fluffy yarn fringe, don't you think?

Really an angel because it is so light, so immaculate and easy to manager. This is probably the easiest shawl to make so far. Will also look great in deep solid colors. Perfect for the warmer months as it will just provide enough cover.

This is a beautiful shawl, I can't wait to make. I think I'll skip the ribbon for the fringe and use yarn instead. Anyone else done this? I'm not to sure how the ribbon would wash up and stay fresh looking? It will be a great spring night crochet project for me.. Thank you for the free pattern..

What does the abbreviation RV=5 mean? Thanks

I have wondered myself what that meant. I finally found it explained under Kristin's (the pattern designer) website. RV=5 means the row value of that stitch is equivalent to 5 rows of single crochet.

I am hoping to start this over the weekend. I can't wait. Thanks

The 'special stitches' section say -- Sc-tbl -- I don't see that in this pattern at all - ?? The rows only indicat 'sc' or 'dtr' - ??

No the pattern does not use this special stitches Sc-tb. lt means single crochet into the back loop only.

WOW! Beautiful!

Lovely! Thank you for the pattern.
