How many yards are in 9 oz?

Hey.... I'm trying this pattern out I'm pretty new to crocheting so I'm trying my best to fully understand... For number 11 where u have to use the picot, after chaining the 6 do u sl st at the top of the trcl? Or at the base where it was started? I'm not quite sure This is my first time doing a picot

I made this using Simply Soft yarn in Taupe and it turned out lovely. Will make it again. Was very pleased with the shawl.

Can you help me please with row 16? I did the trCl shell increase in r15. My count at the end of r15 is as the patterns states but I am stuck at the first few stitches of r16. The pattern calls for "Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space" but if I do this, I am skipping the entire first pineapple and the first last trCl shell of the first increase before moving onto the second pineapple. I know I have to be overlooking something simple but I just can't see it. I even tried to read the pattern from the end of the row backwards figuring it was symmetrical but that didn't help. If the first and last pineapple are skipped, how does the count end up with 37 clusters and still 12 pineapples? I can only count 35 clusters no matter what, 11 shell increases is 35 (3 clusters x 11 shells) 2 (one from each end). I appreciate any help, I am frustrated, tried putting it down for a day but I still come up with the same problem. Thank you in advance.

where do you find the Spa yarn all the places I've looked it is discontinued....

I had the perfect yarn for this which I purchased for something else but after seeing this pattern I am starting on it right now! Wow so beautiful! This captured my attention immediately! Thanks so much!

This looks lovely and it was not hard to do. Thank you.

Please can anyone tell me how much yarn to buy to make this shawel

Can someone please help me with row 16? I cannot see how these instructions relate to the previous row at all. Row 15 does not have a ch-3 sp - so how can I put a sc in it? Row 16: Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 3, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space, I am pretty new to crochet, but I was doing fine until row 16/

Row 15 (trCl shell INCREASE row): Beg-trCl shell in first trCl, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space, [sc in next ch-6 space of pineapple, ch 6] 3 times, *trCl shell-INCREASE in ch-3 space of next trCl shell, ch 6, skip next ch-6 space, [sc in next ch-6 space of pineapple, ch 6] 3 times; repeat from * across to last trCl, trCl shell in last trCl, turn11 shell INCREASES, 2 shells, and 12 pineapples. If you notice, you are doing trCl INCREASE. (([trCl, ch 3] twice, trCl)) Your ch-3 sp is right between your clusters. Don't feel bad, threw me for a loop at first too!!

Did you figure out row 16? I too am stuck. I see where there is a ch 3 space in row 15 but if I stretch over to it for the sc, I am skipping the entire first pineapple.

I have made this shawl twice and had no trouble following the pattern, but the woman in the picture must be absolutely tiny, as even crocheting very loosely with a larger hook this pattern makes a small shoulder shrug and not the lovely draping shawl shown in the picture.

This is beautiful but now I'm not sure if I should make it! Has anyone else found a way to make this so that it isn't so tiny? Has ANYONE had it come out fine? Also, are these English instructions as opposed to USA instructions? With Brit instructions a double crochet is actually a single crochet. Could that be causing confusion? SO sad to not make this until I know for sure!

Hi TJ, Glad it's working out for you. I've been crocheting for a long time too and this pattern was a doozy with some rows. I also made the sleeves which look really pretty just by tacking a single crochet in the proper spot.

djaspercat24 9019706 Thanks so much for the clarification on row 10, I have been crocheting since I was a child, I thought perhaps I was just getting old, and couldn't read a patterns any more. With your advice, have made it thru row ten and it is working out perfectly. Thanks Again....TJ

no schematic

After I started the shawl over I crossed out the numbers 1 -20 to the left. These are not rows and that's why I was getting confused. Once I did that every row is working out perfectly (so far).

I had the hardest time with row 10 also. I had to start the shawl all over. Row 10: When you come up to the * make a picot in the next treble stitch, trCl, ch 5, follow the directions until the * You will end up with 23 picots which you will need for row 11 because then you will have 11 shells, 12 6 treble groups. I am on row 12 right now and it's working out perfectly so far. Hope this helps.

I'm having a hard time reading row 10! When it gets to the * doesn't make any sense. Please help.

I made this pattern over the weekend. There are a few errors and I seem to have ended up with one less row of trcl down the front so it looks a bit odd however probably more noticable to me than to anyone else while I wearing it. I have photos of mine on my blog , http://deliciousdesignz.blogspot.com.au/2013/09/the-goddess-shawl.html

Row 8: Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 5, trCl in next trCl, *ch 3, tr in next tr, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 5, trCl in next trCl; repeat from * across, turn24 clusters and 11 tr. Should read: Row 8: Beg-trCl in first trCl, ch 5, trCl in SAME trCl, *ch 3, tr in next tr, ch 3, trCl in next trCl, ch 5, trCl in SAME trCl; repeat from * across, turn24 clusters and 11 tr. That is the only mistake I have found so far. Mine is turning out after adjusting that. I am only on the 10th row so far because I just started today, but I will share a corrected version (or at least a version that I have made work for me.) This is not my pattern, just changes I have made that make sense for me and make the pattern work.

Ignore my comment. Turns out I misread Row7 and only did trCl instead of trCL shells. If you do the shells it all makes sense. LOL

sdfds

hi

This pattern is terrible, I wish someone would see this that posted it and revise the pattern I have already purchaced the yarn and this is so flustrating

I purchased the yarn but am so flustrated with the pattern I wish someone would repost this pattern correctly. I can follow the photos but the front of mine does not look as open as the photo.

any corrections???????????

Would like to make this.......However, seems there's a lot of questions about pattern!!!!!!Any corrections??????????

I followed the directions until I got to row 8 and then it started to cup in, so I looked at the photo and on row 7 there are 2 triple clusters in each cluster, going to try it that way and follow the photo instead of directions. I love the pineapple design and think I can make it work, if anyone else has this problem please let me know I wonder if the designer realizes the mistakes

I am using Red Heart classic size 10 cotton crochet thread, have no idea what the thread is that is suggested in the directions, so I will just have to see how it comes out, I am on row 7 now and it looks good, Also using size c aluminum hook

Beautiful and very easy but the rows are numbered wrong, so be sure to watch that.

I love this SHAWL pattern! It is easy to make and beautiful! When I looked at the picture I thought it had sleeves but after making it I realized it just draped that way.

Row 8 is mathematically impossible. You skip every other triple. How can you end up with 11 tr.? From the picture it looks like you put 2 trCl in each previous row's trCl tp end up with the 24 on row 8. I am going to tr in each tr and 2 trCl in each trCl so I end up with the 24 clusters and 11 triples as stated on pattern.

Iam stuck on row 11 iam getting it but it is skipping the trebles in between the treble clusters iam lost and I get how to do the picot can I get help with this please

having trouble with the directions also

I am having problems with row 8. I don't end with 24 clusters. how are the clusters doubled?

I love this Shawl and really want to make it. The only problem is that I live in the UK, so I am going to need to go special delivery, This could be quite expensive, so I need to know how many rolls of yarn I need to order to completely make sure I have enough. The only problem is that the pattern doesn't say how many I need. Please, please could someone help me. Either that or tell me what yarn I can use in replacement that I can order in UK, I await any help I can with bated breathe

Every pretty, can't wait to make it.

Every pretty, can't wait to make it.

Very lovely, can't wait to make it.

Very pretty!!!

I am having a blast with this pattern! I'm about half way done, and was wondering I could make this to be longer. Does anyone know which rows I could double up to make it longer? Like maybe do rows 13-18 twice? Anyone with a suggestion would be awesome! Or maybe someone knows of a pattern like this one but longer? Thanks!

it is soooooooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!

This shawl is beautiful. The pattern is exact. The girl I gave it to gets tons of complements.
