I would love to make this but I am having difficulty finding lace weight wool. What brand wool was used for this project? the thinnest i can find is #10 cotton.

Yes, the shawl was crocheted back and forth. You have to turn it each row.

Beautiful shawl. I am almost finished with mine. There are typos in the instructions, so use the diagram. I am using a number 3 Simply Soft Light yarn so my shawl is a bit heavier, good for WI fall or spring. I also did mine in grey and black. It is stunning. I will also add, this was my first project asside from straight rows for scarfs. Good thing I have a book that teaches reading diagrams or I would have been up a creek.

That shawl is absolutely stunning! I'm going to start this as a winter project and I think I will do it in the red and black as well. Thx so much for sharing. MO

I have not started the shawl yet, but am somewhat confused with the instructions. I might use another trusted pattern, but use the lace weight yarn. Is there a video to show how the pattern progresses ?
