This is such a beautiful shawl and the lace pattern really stands out with the patons lace and the color changes blend in perfectly. I can't wait to make this shawl. The pattern seems easy enough but still able to keep you interested. But back to the yarn, I have loved the way patons lace looks in every pattern I have seen it used in. I really want to order some.

After row 20, where you say to continue in pattern, increasing 4 sts on alt. rows as before till you reach 207 sts., I do NOT know where to do the increases. Can't you please write all the rows out till it reaches 207 sts? Also on the border where after 10 rows it says to continue increases as before, --- write it out to completion also. I really love this pattern want to make it. HELP! TY in advance

Hi Crafter 0565478, Because this is a Patons Yarn knitting pattern, we have presented the pattern as they have written it. If you are having problems with increase, we suggest contacting the designer of this pattern via the Yarnspirations website. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

15-20th rows form the lace leaf pattern so after the first 20th row, you will simply repeat rows 15-20 until you have 207 sts. The pattern is fully written as opposed to many other charted patterns. What I think is throwing you off is the increase instructions being stuck in the sentence that should have been more clear about what to do after row 20. I know this is really late, but it may help someone.

when knitting the boarder, is the purl side supposed to be on the right side? or did i make a boo boo? I'm about 2 rows into the boarder and all my purl stitches are falling on the good side, but I've followed the pattern to a T. HELP!!

That would be a boo-boo, the purl stitches fall on the wrong side if you have completed the 4 knit rows correctly before starting the border section. Those 4 knit rows in there are probably what's throwing you off. Hope this helps someone.

Is anyone else having trouble opening the charts?

I would name this shawl, "kismet." It has a beautiful providence!
