Thats the name of the pattern. I think I saw it here in a post. It is by Jolly knits. I can't for the life of me figure out this graph, or where to start knitting. The pattern is sending me into fits. Can anyone help. Please Help!

What more specifically is your difficulty? Are you an experienced knitter but just not with charts? I looked through what the designer provides and it looks quite thorough so please be more specific. Also, you could contact the designer. Someone here will also be able to help you.

Have you EVER worked a charted pattern before? There are many tutorials available which can help you.

I believe the instructions start on page 24. Cast on 7 stitches.

I'm not going to wade through 29 pages to knit a shawl.

Yes that is the pattern. Thank god you found it. I don't like working from charts. I have looked at chart instructions before and could figure them out easily. This one there are arrows going up one side of the shawl and down on the other side. You cast on 7 and increasing to 9 stitches. Then it says to switch to chart A. There is no row 1 or 9 stitches that I can see.

This pattern is VERY detailed, with a lot of tutorial photos in it. At first glance, the charts look like they are done well. Perhaps if you take some time to study them, and read through in detail and really, really, try to follow the instructions, it will work out for you. I hope so. Good luck!!!

If you want to use a pattern that uses charts, you need to learn how to read them.

Print page 29, Turn 90degrees so that the point is a the bottom. The first row on chart is row 2, the edge stitches are not on the chart. So: K3(edge), yo, k1, yo, k3(edge). Row 3 WS not shown on chart, k3, P3, k3. Row 4 edge, yo , k3, yo, edge. Row 5 k3, p5, k3. Row 6 edge, yo, k2,yo,[s1, k1, psso see page 17], yo, edge. Row 7 k3, purl 'til last 3 st, k3.

I believe you need to take the time to read thru the pattern....possibly jot down some notes or highlight areas that you want....the designer does say this is "Easy" & every detail is explained...hence the 29 pages!

A goog way to learn to read a chart too...

Chart A should begin with with a single stitch for row 1.
Three edge stitches
“Chart A”
Center stitch
“Chart A”
Three edge stitches

That totals your 9 beginning stitches on your needles.
You add two YO per side so four total which means the next row of your chart should be three stitches.

Does this help at all?

I only glanced at the beginning but I can take another look for you.

Maybe you're confused because the charts are printed sideways? The charts are too wide to print in portrait mode, so they're printed vertically.

You'll have to enlarge the image to see the row numbers. You start at the pointy end, and follow the charts until you get to the wide side.

You know I think with many shawls there is simply too much information and much of it is slipped in among the pattern. I think the actual pattern should be just the facts and the other should be just at the beginning. I really do believe that too much" written chatter" sometimes is more of a hinderance than a help. I have modern patterns that wander off into a history lesson and it would be very distracting for someone new to lace.

Take your time, don't be in a hurry,read it over till each bit is clear, then start. This may help you..
