I keep hoping for an update to this pattern. The shawl is lovely, but I don't understand the directions. The set up row says to place 2 markers. When I work Row 1, what do I do between markers? In Row 2, are the yo,k2tog3times when I get to the first marker or after the 2nd marker, or what? I don't see how there is any increase after row 1, because Row 1 is the only time it says to kfb. For every yo there is a k2tog so it looks to me as if the # of stitches stays the same. I would love to make this shawl, but clearly the pattern needs an update. Thank you!

You slip the markers in row 1 and the KFB is the increase. I've made this and the pattern is fine the way it is written.

The revised pattern corrects the instructions to just the first pm removing the unnecessary K1, place second marker.

I found a revised pattern http//www.universalyarn.com/pattern.php?pa == ttern=898 Rating is still one star because I haven't tried it yet, and the revision has been available since 2014, yet my erroneous pattern is labelled "updated June 18, 2015." Shoddy editing for a lovely, little shawl!

I have the same question with the instructions. I tried to go on, slipping the markers, but the pattern did not work, nor did the instructions help. No one has answered your question. We are stuck, and this is a pretty shawl!

I love this pattern, However, I cannot figure it out. You say to use two markers, but then only one is mentioned after set up row.. So what's up with that? Really wanted to make this for Xmas.

When can I expect an answer to my problem posted on June 10th? I am very anxious to make this shawlette!!!

I have done the set up row but I cannot get past the first row. I still only have 10 stitches. What am I doing wrong?

It looks like you're missing one of the increases in Row 1. There is a YO (yarn over) and KFB (knit into front and back of loop) in the row. Make sure you're doing both increases, and you should end up with the right number of stitches. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

You can find a list of common knitting abbreviations here: http://www.allfreeknitting.com/Tips-for-Knit == ting/Common-Knitting-Abbreviations wyib does mean "with yarn in back." Similarly, pwise means purl wise. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Confused about abbreviations.

I believe that wyib means with yarn in back, I hope this helps.

It looks lovely but like the others I don't know what the abbreviations mean ???

It is lovely but like the others I don't understand the abbreviations ??

I agree. I do not know wyib. I cannot understand this pattern, but I love the shaw. I also wish there were a link to buy the yarn.

Where are the abbreviation instruction for this pattern. I cannot knit this without them,

I agree. a couple of the abbreviations I don't know.
