What a lovely pattern! It looks easy enough and has different textures in it so that is an additional plus. Prayer shawls are always needed. I knit for a charity and this pattern will come in handy. Thank you.

Perfect - I was looking for a prayer shawl pattern. I've joined a prayer shawl knitting group at my place of worship and was looking for something pretty, colorful and easy. This is different from the k3,p3 pattern of a traditional prayer shawl, too. Love the variegated yarn, too.

I am pretty sure that the remove marker in row 26 is simply a typo. I would go ahead and slip the marker until you complete row 30.

This pattern is beautiful. I am almost finished it but have a question. On row 26 it says rm two times which means remove markers. However, on row 30 it also says rm. I do not see where markers were put back on after they were removed on row 26. Please clarify. Thank you.

I have read the pattern and your question about row 26 30 and the rm in them. Did you ever receive an answer to clear this up. I want to make the shawl and feel I should find the answer to your question before I start. Please let me know. Thank you.

Also waiting for a solution to the rows 26/30 problem
