What a beautiful shawl pattern! I've never made a triangle shawl before so this looks like a good one to try. It's so delicate it looks very elegant! I'm not sure if I'll use the fringe. It seems to take the formalness down a notch for me. The white is really pretty. I wonder if there's a white with a silver thread in it I could use...guess I'll have to go look. Thanks for the pattern!

Timeless. This particular shawl makes me think about the ones my Grandmother would wear to church. I loved to sit next to her and her soft shawl would become my pillow later on during the service. I am considering this one for the sake of memories.

This summer shawl is simple yet timeless. I think what gives this particular shawl such appeal is the edging applied. The shell stitch took it from plain to extraordinary. This elegant shawl can be crocheted with the basic crochet stitches in little time.

I love the look of this Summer Shawl! After reading the written pattern right here on this page it sound so easy to make. It is done like the corner to corner blanket but making only half of one. I love the trim of this and the airiness of this is just right for a evening out. So beautiful, I can see it being done in a shimmery yarn color. I'll have to go look for a beautiful yarn and make this one to add to my accessories. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful crochet pattern.

for the start of row 2, where it says chain 4, counts as a tr, then do I add another chain 1 to that chain 4 before going to the next stitch, and when it says "inc" is that increasing it with 1 chain stitch or is that increasing it with a set of stitches "dc, ch1, tr", together , is there a video of this to look at

Pretty. How do I print it?

I tend to look at patterns online and try to find ways to alter them to fit my needs if I like the basic shape of it. In this case, I altered the color (used Red Heart in color Mosaic), didn't put on the fringe (was starting to run low on the yarn, and didn't want to buy more of it), and added a button so that I could keep it on me and not fuss with it. It came out great, and now I want to make another one in Patriotic colors.

Row 2 says ch 4 (counts as tr, ch1)'work [1dc in space between sts, ch 1] What is the ch 4 attach to? Does it just right into the dc? next 1dc in space between sts, ch 1, what space between sts? I am a beginner please explain in simple language .

Caron International Feathers yarn has been discontinued. Do you have a suggestion for something comparable? Thanks

Where do you find Caron International Feathers yarn? What would be comparable to that one?

Love this pattern, but out of curiosity what does, "inc" in () mean?

"inc" means increrase.

Actually, the half of the ring that is not worked becomes the bottom point of the shawl. You make the ring and then start Row 1 into the ring. Row 1 only fills half of the cirlce. Row 1 will be at the top of the circle and a few chains will be at the bottom of the circle. The bottom of the circle becomes the bottom point of the shawl. At the end of row 1 you chain 4 and then turn. So now, you are no longer working in the round, you are going to start working rows on top of row 1. It really is a very easy pattern and works up quickly. I hope this helps.

thanak you alicat1957

i do not understand row 2 "work [1dc in space between sts, ch1]......where is the space between sts? could you help?


Actually, since it seems to be starting at the bottom point of the shawl, it could be started with a ring. Just because it's a ring doesn't mean it has to be worked in rounds. Just instead of going around the ring work the first row IN the ring, then turn and work the rest of the rows as if you had started with a chain.

I think they used the wrong photo. There is no ring on this photo. If there was we would be working in the round I really liked this shawl, need a quick, easy one to wear to a wedding next week

i figured it out you start and end with 1dc-ch1-1tr and the middle is all dc does that make sense. every row is adding 2 dc.

I'm having a hard time following the pattern.

Me too, it's just not making sense
