This shawl looks lovely. I love to read patterns written from someone in another country. The details are usually written just a bit differently but you always learn something. I will have to look at the yardage on this yarn. That is the only problem I have with this pattern. It is an unique shawl pattern and should look lovely when finished. Thank you.

Explain the next to last row please. I tried to accomplish the "k1 winding yrn 3 times, p1 winding yrn needle 3 times, k1 winding yrn 3 times" It seems everything would come off together in one large opening (all 9 wrapped) rather than the picture of the pattern. Need help!

When you go into the stitch to knit 1 and wrap yarn 2 times, do not remove left hand stitch, go back in purl wise and wrap yarn 3 times again, do not remove stitch from left needle, go back into the stitch knitwise and wrap the yarn around the needle 3 times, after the 3rd wrapped stitch allow the stitch on left hand needle to fall off as you normally would. At the end of this row you will have about 900 or so loops on your needles. After you complete the second row, the number of stitches will drop back down to approximately 33 stitches to complete the bind off.

when you go into the stitch to wrap 3 times-I wrote 2 times by mistake on first instruction, sorry.

Hello Vera R, if you click the "Print" button directly under the name of the pattern, you should be able to easily print the pattern. Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Very pretty. I just started knitting prayer shawls and love the honeycomb pattern. I wonder if you could leave off the edging and would it still look nice? Also, hand-painted yarn is a little expensive. Any suggestions on a less expensive brand? Thanks.

Susan, from the looks of it, you would need some kind of edging to keep the edge from curling. It might look good with a simple garter stitch edging or a broken rib anything that won't curl when it's bound off. I haven't tried it, so I'm not sure, I'm just going by reading the pattern. I don't know what other yarn would work, but if it were me, I'd go to a yarn store and just look. Surely there is something to substitute.

This is an extraordinary shawl knit in a beautiful wool and the secret is, its a simple repetitive pattern that grows smaller as you knit. For those of you unfamiliar with skpo there are some videos showing how to make this stitch on youtube. Just type SKPO into your browser search.
