What a stunning pattern. I love the smoky colors and the way it drapes around the neck and then down your body. This is a super-special project I'd like to do to challenge myself, even though it's just knitting, purling, and yarn overs. I wonder how long it takes to complete.

I love the look of the pattern, but the instructions seemed incomplete, no cast amount was noted, finally found it on the red heart site and its called Lace Border Shawl. I have exactly 3 balls of this yarn in my stash, now I have a great pattern to use them with-thank you so much!

cast on listed above is 23 stitches-it is right below

it is right below instructions.
