We have added the diagram. Thank you for pointing out the omission! - Caley, FaveCrafts Editor

I'm making this now, the only question I have how do you sew it together it states to look at the diagram but I don't see it.. any help on this would be really appreciate I am almost finished crocheting it.

have made this several times, using different yarns and croched hooks, adjustng the overall sizes, depending on the yarns. Also, I have found this shawl is a good way to use up odds and ends of yarn. They make great gifts to give to seniors in nursing homes, and often, smaller sizes work better as they fit over the shoulders, without being caught in wheel chair wheels or bed linens. Bobbye
