I have not made the shawl yet but the instructions looks easy to follow. It is definitely a solid color shawl and yarn with a little shimmer would work the best. It is a good addition to any outfit, even in the cold weather. It is good for the office with the different temperatures. Thank you.

Wow, this is stunning. I love light, lacy shawls like this. Can't wait to try this pattern!

This is a nice light lacy shawl. The pattern is easy and straightforward. However, I would not call it a "beginner" pattern because you need to know how to read the pattern abbreviations and how to do a yarn over. So I would call it "easy" not beginner since it is more than just knit and purl.

Since I am not a fan of the big bulky cowls and scarves, this shaw is right up my ally. Seems to be some questions about the pattern but I can't speak to that since I have not tried to make it yet. It looks lovely in the pictures and I can't wait to make it.

Re-writing about nine lines of pattern seems overkill to me - this pattern strikes me as simple and straightforward. Even so, the designer re-wrote it for those having trouble with those nine lines of instructions - a great kindness considering the attitude of some people the shawl turned out beautifully - admittedly I have not tried the new directions (and likely will not)

Although I was able to follow the first edition of the pattern easily, I noticed the author rewrote the pattern in simpler notation. Hopefully, that will eliminate any confusion. This is a very pretty shawl with a double set of increases giving it a rounder shape instead of the traditional triangle. I suspect it could be made with any weight yarn on the appropriately sized needles.

This is one of the most poorly written beginner patterns I've ever seen. Designer didn't take the time to write instructions out step by step, which to me is important when you are calling it a "beginner" piece. Notes sent to designer are answered with the following "you must not be much of a knitter if you don't understand." As a knitter with 40 years of experience I found it difficult to follow, and had to completely re-write the pattern for it to make sense. Funny thing is I was not the only experienced knitter commenting that it made no sense. Further comments to designer resulted in being told that no place was this pattern listed as a beginner pattern, and being banned from her blog. I give it 1 star because it is a pretty item, but for ease of understanding the pattern if I was truly a beginner knitter 0 stars.

It's not really all that hard. All Free Knitting determines and skill level labels, not the designer. You had to completely rewrite a 9 line pattern? Hmmmmm.
