It's hard not to love the stripey pattern on this Turquoise Hepta Shawl. Pulled together by the lace border, it's truly an essential summer shawl. Knit shawls like this one make perfect coverups for formal events, such as weddings or Sunday morning church, and the light and springy colors make it a perfect accessory for the warmer seasons. It only takes three balls of yarn to make this stunning shawl, so what are you waiting for? Try it in different colors if you want to get creative with this knitting pattern.

OK - more than a year later - soooo thankful for the response you apparently didn't have time for. Appreciate it. Not. 64" is FAR too wide for a now almost-9 year old. Won't be trying to do this - won't be looking at any more from this designer.

All free knitting simply hosts patterns, they do not own them, so they are not obligated to alter a copywritten pattern to satisfy your self entitlement. Furthermore it is a basic 4 stitch repeat that could easily be altered by anyone with even minimal knitting experience.

Hi. This is beautiful, but have I missed a gauge? I'd LOVE to be able to make this for my grand-daughter - she has asked for it - but I don't know how to make it smaller - she just turned 7 -( And how on earth am I to rate this BEFORE I make it???

Turquoise-hepta-shawl. 8 row repeat losing 14 stitches per repeat. Gauge 24 rows = 4inches. 36 stitches remaining requires 19 decreases. Every repeat requires one inch. I don't understand how the length can be 15 inches.

Decreasing the stitches in the row is decreasing the width not length of the piece. This shawl is knit from the bottom up so the decreases are giving you the shaping as you move up to the collar of the shawl. Hope this helps, someone. Happy knitting.
