hello can you please help me with this pattern i have reached the 35 row and do not understand the pattern at this point.please answer me back,Lemon 123

Hi isabella94, The short row is an interesting technique in knitting. It can be even used to help you change direction in your knitting! Essentially what you're doing is stopping the row SHORT; you're turning your needles before the row is over. Where that line says "turn," you should flip your work over and begin working the other side, as if you've already completed the row, even though much of it is still left unknit. We hope this helps! Let us know if you require further instruction and with what exactly you are confused. Happy knitting! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This is short row shaping. You will work the stitches in the pattern as directed, when it saids turn, you will turn the work in the middle of the row and work back the way you came, this will leave some of the stitches in the row unworked until later when they are incorporated back into the pattern. It will seem a little tight at some points, but not to worry, it will work out in the end. Happy knitting!

Looks like a lovely shawl, what I can see of it. I know it is free but the photo really is not good. I understand the working of the short rows but what will happen to each end? Are they even? I think it is a very confusing pattern which is too bad because it looks somewhat lovely in the photo.

Short row clarification i.e. Row 35, K to marker, ssk, K5. Do I repeat the pattern to the end or only work on these stitches? Also don't understand "Next Row". VERY confusing and not what I consider 'beginner's' pattern

The word "turn" always indicates that you are turning your work and working back the opposite way. I know this is late, hope it helps someone.

I have gotten to the part of short row shaping, on row 35 it says to turn and next row purl to marker. If I turn and purl there is no marker to purl to only the end. Please explain where the other marker should have been placed? Are there any errors in this pattern. I am not getting it.

Knit to marker means you will knit 143 sts, slip marker, SSK, K5, turn, purl the 6 stitches to get back to marker, slip marker, P2tog, purl 5 turn. There was only 1 marker placed at the halfway point of the shawl, the short row shaping would be easier if they had put the sm to let knitters know that the next 6/7 stitches are worked beyond the marker. I know this is late, hope it helps someone.

okay i got to the part where you start to shae the short row ugh i am lost and this is not a easy pattern either. !!

Thanks for the explanation. I'm sure I'll get it when I knit it.

Would love to try this pattern, but am confused as to what is meant by "turn" at the end of rows 35-38. Bonnie

Hi, The pattern is just emphasizing the short row shaping. Instead of knitting to the end of the row, where you would naturally turn the work, you will be turning the shawl at the stitch marker. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Just love it and want to strat, but can you tell me why cast on 286 and bind off 239 are both ends not the same?

I have had no answer to my question.

There is short row shaping in the pattern, meaning there is a decrease in stitches before you end, that's why the cast on and cast off stitch amounts are different. i know this is really late, hope it helps someone.

Love the pattern and am looking forward to getting started but do not understand why cast on 286 sts and then bind off 239 if both ends are the same. W from England

Sorry, I see it

Could be terrific with whole pattern!!

Where is row 10??

Row 10 is listed along with rows 2,4,6, and 8
