This is very beautiful indeed. I wish it was in a Pdt format also so I can save on my kindlefire.

There is a "download PDF reader" ad on these pages, or you can Google "print to PDF" for a list of them. Choose "printable version" from the pattern page, but download it as a PDF instead of printing it.

I have downloaded the free PDF reader, but unless the project is "saved" in my computer, I cannot convert it to PDF. And since it is a web page, it doesn't seem to save where this program will convert it. Am I doing something incorrect? Thanks. LK

This pattern references "Drawing 1". Is there a drawing and if so, where is it hiding? Thaks.

It says on pattern to connect the motifs while crocheting the last row of each motif, see pattern 1 but I can't find the pattern so do not know how to join the motifs.Hope you can help as I really want to make this shawl. Thanks in advance

I have spent many hours working and ripping out this pattern until I finally have a square! The pattern is very hard to understand. I went to the website about connecting, but this is nothing like a granny square. How do I connect them? The chart is not helpful to me because I can't even see how the squares go together. I love the picture..I want to make it. Can you help?

One more favor, please. Can you post a picture of a square so I know if I did it right?
