Is there a way to print the pattern without all the stuff beside it?

Hello rippedst 1624637! I would suggest copying and pasting the instructions into a Word document for ease of printing. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is NOT an easy pattern. I have been knitting for many years and cannot get this figured out. I need more directions than what is given for sure.

I see alot of questions about the amount of yarn, and the size of pattern. This isn't really a pattern, its more of a guide. The yarn amount is going to be based entirely on the way a particular knitter knits and how big they want their shawl to be. The pattern stitch is easy, figuring out everything else is not so much-I think the rest of it is going to take alot of patience and experimenting to get through it. I just finished the Azure shawl in 2 days, for a wedding, and that's the most complicated shawl pattern I've seen in 40 years of knitting. I am going to do this one also-when I get through it, I'll post my results and measurements here to help the others. Lisa

This is a pretty shawl, but I am a beginner. Have you figured this one out yet and where is it posted?

It's very pretty! It will be a joy to add it to my Prayer Shawls pieces!

where do I get the reply, I do not know a lot about blogging WR

I want to make this shawl and cannot figure out the pattern, I am an experienced knitter, but tried this pattern several times and it just doesn't look right, do you repeat the 3 rows or is there something I am missing, I love the pattern, WR

That's correct, you repeat the three rows until the shawl is the desired size and length.

how much yarn is needed for this shawl?

the amount of yarn is going to depend on how big you want your shawl to be and what your final gauge is. This is not down to you, it really and truly is a very poorly written pattern.

How much yarn is required for this shawl??

It's so easy! I want to make it in several colors for this summer. Keep up the great worl!

thankyou so much for was simply lovely and easy and relaxing to knit

beautiful, and the pattern is very easy to follow, Thank you Erin
