I love this wrap, but I am have difficulties maintaining 87 stitches for every row. Can some please tell me if 87 stitch count should be in every row. Also, my pattern does not look like the chevron pic shown. Please respond. Thank you!

yes, the stitch count of 87 stitches is maintained throughout the pattern. For every decrease there is a corresponding increase, the yo is the increase , if you are losing or gaining stitches I would look to your yo and tweek it, I've been knitting for nearly 50 years and this what still trips me up from time to time.

I am about 6 inches in to this and have a question. Rows 2 4 which are WS, instruct to K3 at begin. and end of row w/ purl stitches in between. But according to the KEY/Chart, it states to Purl on RS row. Knit on WS rows. Yet row 2 and 4 are always WS. Is this an error or am I doing something wrong. Help, please.

I think I see it what you are doing, you are reading the key wrong, the key lists the symbols for individual stitches, not the entire row. When it says a symbol means to knit on ws rows, it means just those few stitches in the chart, not the entire row, if you read it stitch by stitch and not line by line, you will see that it is correct. Hope this helps, happy knitting.

Hi Knitters, We have checked the pattern on the Bernat site and have confirmed that it is the same. Hopefully this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

I can not get this pattern to work on the third row, to many stitches on the needle please help me. Can't rate cause I can't get this to work

I have tried to knit this several times, no success. I think there is something wrong with the pattern

I am about to start this, I did read thru it and I don't understand at the end the piece about the fringe and then directing us to the diagram which obviously is about the pattern.

can you clarify the abbreviation 'ssk' thank you

SSK is slip, slip, knit-it means to slip two stitches 1 at a time onto the right hand needle and then push the left hand needle through the front of both stitches and knit through the back of the loop. I', old school, so I use knit 2 together through the back of the loop-"K2togtbl-it comes out the same. hope this helps.

The directions for the fringe are unclear. The diagram appears to be of the entire shawl, not the fringe, although it is the fringe that is mentioned as being "shown in the diagram."

Absolutely gorgeous. And a simple 4 row repeat too. Wow.

Lovely pattern. As it's over 4 rows it's quite easy to get the hang of but looks complicated. I made it in Araucania Tocano Merino, beautifully soft and warm. x
