Wow. That is beautiful. I wish I understood more of the directions. I just know single and double crochet. I'll save it for some day when I know more. Thanks for sharing. It's really beautiful.

I loved this pattern the first time I saw it, (i think it was on the crochetville forumS), and made myself one. Everyone comments on how beautiful it is. Thanks so much for sharing it.

A question...could you keep going and make this bigger for a plus-size gal? Maybe just add more rows at the end of pattern?

Thanks! What a gorgeous shawl!!

DTW This is the first thing I've ever made for myself. I LOVE it and use it nearly every evening. It took me about a week to make in spare time after work. Thank you for sharing.

Just wondered if you've made a chart for this pattern. I've tried it a couple of times and I'm not quite sure if I have it right. It's gorgeous and I'd love to actually complete one.

Look, yes the shawl is beautiful, but I'm stuck here trying to decipher the pattern's cryptic language. I really wish you would go back and clear up a few phrases, or explain in a little more detail.

Thanks for this pattern! I made one for my mother in law. Not sure if SHE liked it, but I loved it and hated to give it away!
