Note: You can increase until you have enough sts to work a complete (19-st) repeat of the Lace chart between the existing repeats. To introduce the new repeats more gradually, you can increase until you feel comfortable working partial Lace chart rows. There are many different ways to introduce the repeats gradually. A chart is provided showing one suggested increase pattern. When introducing repeats gradually, take care to work the same number of increases and decreases within the partial rows.

Beautiful!

I wish you had a "print" button so I could print the pattern without all the advertising

Hey there! Thanks for your comment we've added a "print" button just below the rating stars under the page title.

That is amazingly beautiful but the pattern has a lot of flaws and isn't very detailed.

I have been looking for some shawl patterns, as a senior, sometimes the AC is more than these bones can stand, having something like this to throw over my shoulders will be really nice. I can hardly wait to dig into my stash and find a color so I can start.

Pattern is very vague - not for a beginner. The math/stitch counts just do not add up as written. I am about a quarter of the way through the pattern, and am not sure if it is even worth my effort to finish. Note also that the size of the shawl is very small (only 54" across on the long edge). I am not convinced that the edges will overlap in front. No instructions are given to enlarge the pattern. Beautiful design, just an awful pattern.

I have to agree with you. It's a beautiful shawl but I won't even attempt it the way the pattern is written. If you ever figure it out maybe you could rewrite it.
