bring on the winter so I can wrap up warm



my crochet shawl is finished and I for one think it looks great.

The pattern is a freebie - link to it here on www.redheart.com, another great resource for free patterns.

I have crocheted it on size 7mm hook in Phildar Kadisha 130 75% acrylic/25% wool, 15 balls of which I found on sale at a car boot sale for a couple of euros a couple of years ago and it has been lurking in the project cupboard ever since.



I even had enough wool left over to add the fringing.


A very satisfying crochet project.

Hey anonymous.... to help with the instructions. Turn is the end of the row. The long dash separates the instructions from a list of what you should have completed that row: 2 Shells, 5 ch-3 spaces, and 2 ch-2 spaces.

I need help, and since you have done this pattern maybe you could help me. I am stuck on row 9, 10 and 11. Row 9 when it gets to here [Shell in ch-2 space of next Shell, ch 1] twice, Shell in next ch-2 space of next Shell, so should I have made three shells at that point. Is the first stitch ch-2 suppose to have 2 shells in it or just one?
