    My shawl is looking awesome so far! Excited to start on this new section! I would love to see other people’s work, but am not on Facebook and don’t wish to join.

    I asked a question earlier but got no answer. Where can I make variations/fewer repeats so the end shawl is not as long. I’m too short for the intended length. It would just swallow me. I asked for help but got none.
    I had to restart three times to conquer the new stitches so I’m only on the beginning of Chart A. I have lots of options to make this shorter but chart A is picky on the pattern. Is there a better place? HELP!

      Hi Jean. You absolutely can change the size! The easiest thing would be to probably eliminate week 3 entirely, or work fewer repeats of week 3, which will be available 12/15. You need to work full repeats of the charts, but you can work any of them fewer times, if desired. And, if you do eliminate repeats and the stitch count isn’t working out on week 3, you can just increase or decrease a few stitches on the first row to make it work. Lots of options!

    I seem to be having problems getting each week it says download instructions but week 2 isn’t highlighted. I was told to go to files but week 2 isn’t there. What am I doing wrong??

    Still finishing week 1, following the written instructions because the chart was too intimidating!🙂 I just looked at the chart, though, and it seems to say that I should be purling on rows 2, 4, 6 and 8, but I don’t see that specified in the written instructions. At this point I don’t plan to redo what I’ve already done (I’m already too far behind), but I am curious if I’m reading either the chart or instructions incorrectly or if they are, indeed, different from one another. Thanks!

      Hi Bunny. The written instructions and the chart match. The chart has the black dot on those rows, which is purl on the Right Side/knit on the Wrong Side. Since you are on the Wrong Side, those stitches are knit. I think the stitch pattern is beautiful no matter if you ended up knitting or purling on the Wrong Side!

    OMG!!! I found it…. When it said at the top of Instructions, when it said cut CB that it was using only CA….. that’s what I did… Skipped the whole section about redoing Chart A

    I have knitted all the rows to get to 113 stitches and am about to switch colors. However when I look ate the directions that go along with the chart on week one it always says to knit. Yet the chart mentions pearling on the right side. I am confused which doesn’t take a lot. 🤣🤣🤣

    I wonder if the last 2 rows of week 2 should be knit with color A. It is listed as CB, but this would not give a color break between week 2 and 3. Also, the first direction on week 3 says to cut color A. If those last 2 rows are not A there would be almost 100 rows of CB in a row. Please check this and let me know. Thanks, Julie

      Hello Julie,

      Thank you for contacting us.

      The pattern is correct. You’ll be working the last two rows of week 2 in color B. You will then work week 3 entirely in Color B. Some knitters decided to use Color A for week 3, or alternate between Colors A & B. But as written, it’s color B for the remainder of the shawl.

      If you have any additional questions, please email or contact Customer Service at 1-833-622-6523.

      Sincerely,

    My week one results are beautiful, using a variegated yarn as CA and white as CB. Great color contrast.

    Love the pattern, but have a question. Am not a chart knitter but reading the chart and looking at written instructions they do not seem to match? Should the chart and written instructions be the same? Please advise!
