Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

When you hold the three strands together, do you knot on the end to make it long, or do you fold it over like regular fringe

Your question doesn't make any sense. This is regular fringe and would be attached in the usual way with a fold about mid way and pulled through as usual.

I just finished this scarf using yarn weight noted (3 light/dk). it looks nothing like the photo and I followed instructions as directed. was that a mistake on Bernat designers?

Hey there, benebrad! The pattern actually calls for Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread, which is a weight category 1 (super fine) yarn. You can see that yarn noted on this page. I hope that helps! Happy knitting! -The Editors of AllFreeKnitting

so i'm assuming it was a typo on the instructions I printed out. can you tell me approximately how many stitches you ended up with, because I may try knitting this again. thank you

The materials list in the pattern has no tupo, there was a notation typo on this website but that shouldn't make a difference when knitting you always use the materials specified in a pattern, never buy yarn based on notated weight.

I have a question about the yarn used for this pattern. The yarn weight is noted as (3)light/DK but the the materials notes Bernat Handicrafter Crochet Thread which is fingering yarn. Please clarify. thanks

You would always go by the material list within a pattern, no matter what it states on the all free knitting website.

Very confusing! Row 1 to 6 for the set up and then row 1 again on the lace pattern. Why not just go t row 7 when starting the lace pattern? That's what the chart looks like. Is row 7 on the chart the same as row 1 in the lace pattern.

The pattern is written in standard format for a knitting pattern. Row 1 and 7 in the lace pattern are different, this can be verified with the written instructions also provided with the pattern.

Is the set up row 5 correct? I don't end up with 21 std. Thank you so much for responding so quickly. I appreciate the help.

I just reviewed the first Row 5 and it looks correct to me. If you're ending up with 23 sts, there is a section where you slip 2 sts, k1, and then pass the slipped sts OVER the knit stitch (so this is a 2 st decrease). That section is roughly in the middle of the pattern. I hope that helps! Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Row 5 on chart does not match row 5 in written directions. Can you help me?

Hi, The pattern actually has two Row 5's. The first is in the set up round of the shawl, and does not match the chart. Once you start the charted section of the pattern, you'll see that that row does match up. I hope that helps! Editors of AllFreeKnitting

Sorry I meant the legend is not clear enough, not the chart. I cannot tell the "ssk" or the "sl2.k1.p2sso" apart :(

Hi, AllFreeKnitting does not create the pattern, we simply reprint and promote patterns from other sources, with permission from the company or blogger. I think Bernat would be happy to hear your suggestion though! Editors of AllFreeKnitting

The chart is just not clear enough even when enlarged. The symbols are too similar. Instead of using the "snow topped mountain" symbol, why not use a simple X or another letter of the alphabet or a number?
