Hi Jackie, If you crochet more tightly than I do then the shawl will be smaller. Sometimes going up a hook size is not enough to make the gauge match up. The finished shawl is 60 inches X 31 inches height so it is not a large shawl it is a shoulder shawl to cover the shoulders and upper bodice area. If you want to make it bigger though you can definitely continue working repeats until you reach the size shawl you would prefer to have. I was actually planning on writing up a pattern using a different yarn/hook to make this stitch pattern into a bigger shawl later this year. I’m sorry you are not pleased with how the shawl is turning out. All the best, Rhondda
I’m at 33 rows now, im using a J hook and will need to go at least 20 to 30 more rows to make it wearable, right now it barely covers my shoulders.
Hi Tammy, I’m sorry I don’t understand what you are saying. The shawl is 33 rows in total plus the edging… Let me know if I’ve missed your point. Thanks, Rhondda
That’s more than 33 rows like your pattern says
Lovely! Thank you for sharing this pattern.
