Very cute! I really like the purples you used and that the pattern looks easy enough for someone like me who’s a very basic crocheter!
Thank you for the tutorial ,it was easy to follow :)
this pattern is cute but the instructions are terrible, it does not give the amount of stitches for each row, it does not explain how to increase to make it bigger I have kept trying to figure it out but there is no way to tell please revise it so i can make it
Every time row 5 is worked, a ch-sp is formed at each end of the row, increasing the width of the shawl. The ch-sp created at the beginning of the row is created when you work the initial ch 4 (counts as a dc stitch and some extra chains), and the ch-sp created at the end of the row is formed when you work the last ch 1 followed by the final dc stitch.
