Could you please tell me what is the name of the yarn you are using? Thanks

The only thing that is missing is where it does not say to chain 2 before the treble crochet at the end of each round. I am doing this pattern single strand in thread and am liking how it is shaping up so far.

Regina,
I am seeing the ch 2 before the tr at each end. My question is, what exactly do you do after row6? Can you please instruct me on this. Thanks. Mary

Same as row 6, but instead of repeat 4 times, repeat 5 times in row 7; 6 times in row 8, etc.

Yes, tried many times and was never able to successfully continue to finish. A missing stitch is a problem since every row thereafter is incorrect.

Why is this inadequate? Have you made it? I am in love with this shawl and am so going to try it. I hope the instructions pan out. Thanks.
