As a beginning knitter I was looking for a new challenge and decided to make this wrap/shawl for a friend. The pattern was easy to follow and my friend was happy with the gift. The picture gives a good view of the different patterns (and my mistakes!)... the wrap is folded so the actual length is double what's seen in the picture.

Sorry folks, but each time I tried to upload the picture the transfer failed...so the picture I refer to in the post is unavailable.

There are several options here - a shawl, a stole, a wrap, even an extra-large scarf. It knits up beautifully and I can imagine how it would look as a blanket as someone earlier suggested --

Just finished this shawl for my sister. It turned out so beautifully!

It would be nice to see a better picture of the shawl showing the entire pattern.

This is the prettiest shawl I've seen all summer. Can't wait to start on it!

31st row: As 1st row. 32nd row: As 2nd row. Are the above instructions referring to the 1st row with smaller needles (seed stich) or the 1st row with larger needles?

You will want to follow the instructions for the body of the shawl, the pattern rows with the larger needle. Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I would like a copy of this pattern, but have not been able to access it. Thanks.

I would also like to make this pattern into a blanket. I would also like to know if there is a formula for making it wider. Thank you. maddy

The formula to make a pattern wider is to determine the stitch count of the pattern, then using the gauge to determine how much wider you wish it to be and cast on the appropriate number of stitches. The stitch count for this pattern is 8 stitches. So, the gauge is 20 stitches to 4", with the stitch count being 8, 20 divided by 8 is 2.5, if you want to make it wider, determine what size you want then add the stitches to the original cast on in groups of 8, keeping the original cast on amount is necessary because of the inconsistent border stitch count.

I would love to make this pattern into a blanket. Is there a formula for making it wider? Thankx Linda

Yes, there is take the tension of 20sts and 26 rows =4" and use this to multiply the number of cast on stitches to create the width you want for a blanket. for example 79sts will be 16.5" wide in gauge, so if you want it to be 66' wide you would cast on 4x the 79 sts, meaning a cast on of 316sts, personally I would only triple the cast on amount= 237 sts. or you can use your own gauge to determine the width.Hope this helps. happy knitting.

Thank you - was gonna ask -)
