I've logged in but can no longer find a save button. Under what or below what heading is the save pattern option. Thank you,

Hello 2jb, the button is located directly under the Yarn Weight information for the pattern. There is a gray button that says "+Save." Hope this helps! -Editors of AllFreeKnitting

This shawl is very pretty, but it does look more like a small scarf than a shawl. I'm new to knitting so I don't think I'm ready for this pattern, but I am saving it for the future. I love scarves, and I make loom knit scarves year round.

I've noticed the same thing, a tendency to call triangular scarves "shawls," not sure why. It's not the kind of shawl you can snuggle in on a cold day, I guess more of a fashion accessory.

I made this shawl a little while ago. Its very pretty, but it took me forever and came out really small. It looks more like a scarf than a shawl. Am I doing something wrong? Ive only been knitting for a short time (since September) and Im wondering, could I have used thicker yarn and bigger needles to make this more shawl-like?

I love the simplicity of this easy to knit shawl. The combination of the plain and variegated sock yarn provides a lot of interest in the simple design. I am certain that this could be scaled up to knit with a heavier weight yarn and bigger needles since the shawl starts with just a few cast on stitches. I do like the light an airy nature of the sock yarn though and will check my stash to see what I have available.

I still am not overly interested in shawls as such, but this looks wonderful as a scarf so I have to knit - and for myself of course if a friend wants it for Christmas, I can be bribed
