I made this a few months ago, and like some commenters here found it to be somewhat bulky. I don't know why, but the pattern I got doesn't have a yarn weight, but it cites a "NaturallyCaron.com Spa yarn that I was never able to find any information about, so I used a worsted weight yarn. I thought the pattern was easy enough, and would make one for friends or family if the wanted one... But I'd use a lighter (3weight) yarn! LOL Dawn Freeman

I made this about 2 years ago with a cotton yarn called "Spark" in a pale green with a green metallic thread running through it. I get compliments on it whenever I wear it. However, at the time it was called "Goddess Shawl". I'm not sure if the cotton thread was a 3 or 4. It did seem somewhat heavy though. And being short at 5'1" the shawl is a bit long but I still like it.

After I finished that jacket about a year ago, I was really disappointed. It was way too big, even though I followed the directions that matched my size. The armholes were huge and seemed out of place. A really bad experience. Considering the problems I've encountered with Doris Chan's patterns (extremely difficult to understand her directions), I am afraid to try another one of her patterns.

Can anyone tell me what the nub is? It says to insert into the face of the chain and into the back of the nub. Help?

Love this pattern -- I made it about a year ago, but I'm still learning some of the crochet lingo, and now realize what the "3" means. The yarn I used was "4", (so it's bulky) and I used a variegated yarn. I love the pattern, but when I wear it, it looks like I've draped an afghan around me! I need to make another one, only with the right weight, and one color!

I made this and get tons of compliments on it all the time. I found the pattern easy to follow and found the way they have you make the fans interesting. Just follow what it says and you should be O.K. sometimes when I crochet things for the first time they don't make sense then I just have to work through it with paper and pencil one stitch at time and it will finally work its' self out as I think annick1960 found below.
