Finally got this knit to 30 inches. Now wondering where to put the border on. It says to put it on the two shorter sides - can't figure out which those are. Was told an easy way to attach it (if the two shorter sides are the ones that I end up with over 450 stitches on. And instead of casting those stitches off - I can attach the border as I knit it - picking up one of the stitches off the needles per every 2nd row of border. Please tell me if this will work. Are the two shorter sides the ones I cast off at the end of my knitting? Thanks )

How can I make this shawl larger?

It has been a while since I knit any thing what is SSK Thank you

Hey there, nmbr1grndma! SSK, or "Slip Slip Knit" is when you slip the next stitch off the lefthand needle onto the righthand needle, and then slip the stitch after that the same way. Then, you place your lefthand needle in front of the two stitches on the righthand needle you just slipped, and knit them together. I hope that helps! Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is the same as SKPSO -- Slip 1, knit 1, pass slipped stitch over the knit stitch. It produces a left-leaning decrease (opposite of the K2tog). Either method will work, but I do feel the SSK looks better. Personal preference.

Do you have to use the charts or can you just follow the written instructions please?

You can use either. The written instructions are for those that don't know how to read charts. I never do anything without charts -- I simply will NOT follow written instructions! But you do what you have to so that you can create this wonderful pattern.

You can download this pattern at http//www.yarnspirations.com/lace-knit-shawl.html

Thanks for the update info on dimensions as well as the hint to zoom in on picture to see the pattern bettern.

I need to know the dimensions of this triangular shawl using lace wool and blocked. NO DIMENSIONS WERE GIVEN. AND WAS THE AMOUNT OF LACE WEIGHT YARN 1746 YARDS?

Please find the updated measurements above. -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

O.K., I know this has nothing to do with the pattern itself, but the description links Jane Austen to the romance of Victorian novels, not taking into account that jane Austen died before Victoria was even born. Let's at least try and get our facts straight in the blurbs.

The phrase "rude much" comes to mind when reading your comment and no it has nothing to do with the pattern, so why is it here?

You must be kidding- I have seen plenty of snotty comments from Elizabethane 1862886. How about the one where you and your knitting group cronies thought a pattern was so awful you put it through the shredder? Don't throw stones hypocrite.

Can not wait to make this but I have to finish my other projects first

I just wish that on your pictures you would put an option to magnify it so we can see the design. Some pictures are ok but some are impossible to see .....

You can always magnify a picture by putting arrow on pic & holding down the control key plus the plus key (you may have to hold down the shift key while you hit the plus key, depending on the layout of your keyboard). This info was given to me by my techie son & I was able to get a much better look at this shawl. However, I still need some better finishing information!
