By: Marie Segares from
Easy Cranberry Shawl

This is a very pretty shawl. I thought I was ready to tackle this project but just saw that in the pattern notes it says to use circular needles because of the size. She forgot to list circular needles under the material list and only specified a size 10.5 needle. I will have to hold off until I can buy circular and learn to read the entire pattern before gathering my supplies next time.

The notes are part of the pattern, so it is made quite clear that it is circulars, even before that the pattern specifies it is 51" wingspan, you're not going to get that on straights.

I have not knitted cables in a while so this will be a good project to me. It is not too complicated, will learn to do cables again and I will have something lovely to wear. A win-win. Thank you for the pattern.

I knit prayer shawls and this one is just perfect for that because it's so pretty and will work up fast. I love the cables in the middle that give it some style. This one is a keeper!

Loved this pattern. Also made a beret to go with it. Thanks so much for this pattern.

Loved this pattern. I added fringe and made a beret.

I love the look of this shawl, not to mention the size as it gives me the sense that it could be worn as a scarf in the style of the European Dream Scarf, larger but still a two-in-one project and as described, relatively easy to knit. (And my to-knit list gets longer lol)

Good afternoon! My vote is for 10! It is gorgeous.

I'm only a beginner, what does it mean by 3 skeins? Thanks

Skein is the word for balls of yarn, so you need 3 of the specified yarn to complete the shawl.

wow, I am so impressed with the variety and numbers of projects available. Thank you for all the free patterns, videos and guidance as a newbie it really is appreciated. Elaine
