This is very pretty. I love the way the model wrapped it around her neck. The design is very delicate looking. But it's not hard at all. It should make up rather quickly. I have a little let leave when posters call the book a needle. It's not knitting, it's a crochet hook.

This really does look like a very warm shawl and depending on where you live, it looks like it would be pretty easy to make this a lighter-weight shawl by adjusting the type of yarn you use, but make sure to check your gauge first. Make sure to adjust your needle size also. Other than that, the instructions look pretty simple.

I like this shawl, especially the color which is so sweet and very refreshing to the eye. However, the squares are tedious to make, very time consuming. I'm excited to see a different color combo here.

I normally wouldnt even bother with a shawl like this as I tend to only work on smaller, quicker projects. I also have to confess to being a little intimidated by Join As You Go projects. As it happens, I was watching Knit and Crochet Daily over the weekend, and Join As You Go was one of the patterns they addressed. It was very similar to this particular Scarlett Shawl (so lacy and open) that I could probably be able to work it properly!

The name is deceiving. I thought when I clicked the link that I would be seeing a bright red, hence Scarlett shawl. This shawl is nowhere near the color red. A little disappointed to also find out that it is made up of very small granny squares that take a lot of time sewing together after they are made.

My link to this page said "STUNNING Scarlet shawl" I love granny squares but not for this project. IMHO .. There are much prettier, easy shawls to make out there.

This is a beautiful cowl I'd like to make. Here's the link to the pattern http// == lett.html

the pattern is there. Its at:

Same comment as Leigh Anne1968 - there is no pattern attached to the link. :(

It is a beautiful shawl and I like the model and the way she is wearing it. Is each square made separately and then joined? I am a beginner.

Excuse me, but the model doesn't even look like she likes this.

I agree, she looks like she has been forced against her will to wear it and looks extremely wooden and disinterested, as if she can't wait to get rid of it!

OMG! I'm so glad I read all the comments as I was signing on to say the same thing. I sometimes hesitate to comment on things like that because I really don't want to offend, but the poor girl looks like she's distressed. Personally, I don't think the shawl is all that -- granny squares -- many of them like that -- don't make a shawl. Blanket, yes, but not a shawl. My 2 cents . . .

There is no pattern to this link.
