Thanks for posting the link Jessica-Jean , that would really look amazing on the right garment. I’m wondering about the edging stitch, it’s a very definite edge. Just watching the execution of the crocheting, am I correct in deciding the left hand linking stitch goes through the stitch and the right one under both loops to tip the stitch inward. This action presumably makes the “tramlines”.
You’d have to be very sure of your stitch count before starting !!
It’s fascinating !
You see something different here every day nearly! Thank you both.
Oh wow !!I am humbled. What an amazing way to represent this message to, not only young people , but to all!!
That is so pretty. Obviously a lot of hard work !!
Well done !
Looking forward to seeing their brother! Great work !
Very heartwarming. I am certain though that there are many more young people like this in the world rather than their pole opposites.
I have just started a relatively easy lace wrap. 80 stitches, 3 row pattern, keep on going with 5mm needles. Great thought I, until I came to dealing with “yarn over , purl 4 together” across the row. The delicate yarn strained against the action.
All hail interchangeable needles!!! For that pattern row only I changed the holding needle to a 3mm and the purl 4 together was so much easier, with a smoother, quicker action and no strain on the yarn.

Did you combine the colors or all of them in the skein? That is an amazing combination of colors. Congratulations
Thank you, it's all off one ball!
It's very nice. The colors work well together.
The colours followed each other off one ball of yarn!!
It’s very pretty. Are there short rows involved?
No, no short rows, just simple knit 2 together or SSK. To be quite honest when working through the pattern I was expecting it to get more complicated, but it didn't.
Very impressive!! Must look up that stitch!
I decided to make this shawl because I have found many shawls I have made don't stay on my shoulders easily.
I really recommend this pattern.
It is worked from the bottom upwards and outwards, ending in a widow's peak center neck. Mainly garter stitch with a simple lace band. The centre gusset looks stylish without the usually centre backbone of holes you often get. The shaping is simple but cleverly placed. I used a DK yarn and a 4mm circular. Happily it does stay on my shoulders!!
Great crocheting!! My guess is that it won't shrink. If you feel it's too large for a shawl, it may look very impressive along the back of a settee. Personally I would wrap myself in those wonderful stitches!!
Wow !!! I love it ! The colours are great !
