Over the Top Platinum Shawl

Lion Brand® Vanna's Glamour®

GAUGE:

1 Shell = about 2 in. (5 cm) wide, with 2 strands of yarn held tog. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Over the Top Platinum Shawl Reviewed by Donna Carlen on 2014-06-26 *****
I'll give it 5 stars for originality. I wish there was a photo of the rear so people could see it before making it.

In making it, I noted what appears to be an error of omission in rows 12, 14 and 16, which, as the pattern emerges and the knot stitches join, goes astray - - so I worked those rows as established, as written for the knot stitches, in row 10.

Also, when working the hood, the same error of omission occurs; so I worked as established in the body.

I would be very surprised if my assumption of an error of omission is wrong. Of 16 people making this on Ravelry, it appears only 2 completed it, and 1 mentioned there were errors, but not what the errors were.

I am close to completing this, and it was a fun project. Will try to return an post a photo after it has been blocked -- I normally don't block acrylic, but I think this would benefit by opening up/flattening some of the stitches.
