I've made at least four of these shawls now. Use very soft yarn. I have had no trouble with the gauge. Everyone loved the shawl that I made for them.

I would ALSO recommend a P hook or larger. Using the hook they said to use, mine was 18" in the middle from neck down back of wrap then it tapers off smaller. My length (or width from tip to tip) was about 54 or 55". so it was a couple inches shorter than the pattern said it would be. It definitely is shorter looking than the photo in front when wearing and weave is not as open. Next one I will go P or Q and maybe buy extra skein in case. LOVELY and EASY pattern!

update: a P hook turned out nice- have included photos

Using a 'K' hook and fingering weight yarn to give the wrap a lacy look. I changed row 5 from DC to TR and added a row of SC before the last trim row. Currently blocking and have measurements of 52" wide and from neck to bottom 18". So I am quite pleased!

The pattern is easy and super quick to do. I just found difficult getting the right gauge, because although I'm a very loose crocheter, I had to move up to a 12mm hook!!! The resulting piece was big enough and didn´t need to add more repeats.

This pattern is fine, the gauge is fine. It is not a full size shawl, it is a little wrap. The pattern states it is only 18" long. It is a good idea to use a bigger hook and add rows if you want a full size, more open and airy shawl. I have given a few of these away to older, bedridden seniors and they love them. Only takes about 4 hours to make using a size N hook.

This is a fun, easy pattern.

But, like several others have said the gauge is off. I used a 10 mm (size P) hook and had to add 10+ rows to make the wrap big enough for an adult. I would recommend using a HUGE hook (size Q at the very least) if you want a lacy look like the picture shows.

The reason why I give this one star is because I could not make the gauge. I read the reviews and one person said use size P to get gauage. I did that. Ended up using size Q 16.00mm hook. I was able to get it to look like the picture. Finished size is 18 x 57 inches. It still turned out beautiful. I am still pleased how this turned out. Will make another one for the cruise next year.

I loved making this wrap. I have made 2 so far and plan on making more. The Vanna yarn is so soft and washed beautifully. The only change I made was to keep going and make it larger as the wrap is much smaller than the picture shows. But that was not a problem. Still used 3 skeins. Enjoy!
