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

Thank you for your response - but I'm looking for the actual layout of the squares & triangles.

You are right about the number of squares in the rows. The triangles are above the 1 st row, the top edge of the shawl.

i love this motif. i am going to use it to make a double wedding ring bed coverlet for my inlaw's 50th wedding anniversary. here is my question-what are the triangles for? i have to assume they are for making the top of the shawl have an even edge...oops, i think i just answered my own question. LOL

For those of you who are crocheting the squares together. Instead of putting the squares up against each other when crocheting them together. Hold them beside each other in your hand and follow the directions to crochet them together. The secret to this is crocheting them together just the same way you crocheted the squares. As in not doing a tighter crochet stitch. If you do it this way you won't have to iron and no blocking needed either. This is the way I have done it in the past. Hope this helps.

I would also like to know the number of squares in each row and where the half squares go.

Just looked at the picture of the completed shawl. Now am I right about this concerning the number of squares in the row? I I amcorrect where do the half squares go?
1st row is 7 squares
2nd row is 6 squares
3rd row is 5 squares
4th row is 4 squares
5th row is 3 squares
6th row is 2 squares
7th and last row is 1 square

Thank you to everyone who answers my questions.

After hours of ripping out and starting over, I *finally* have it! I agree that this pattern is very difficult to follow. The pictures help a lot - I mostly followed it. Now I just hope I can get the squares stitched together ......

I gave up trying to get the squares to crochet together and made the squares and then slipped them together and it lies flat and is lovely. The finishing row makes sense until I get to the extra row on the long side-there are no * * for repeat and I'm guessing that the last 2 chains are the spacing between the "picots" made with the dc. I tried skipping one stictch but it got too bunched up. I tried skipping 2 stitches but that doesn't look right either-can you post a picture of the finished long edge?
Thanks-it is lovely. I made it out of extra fine Chilean rayon yarn and it is breath-taking.

Could you be more specific and give the NUMBER of chains in the corners please.
2-3-4-5 correspond to the rounds, but even the written pattern does not tell you how many chains for the corners

I am wondering if there is a correction on the Pink Square Motif Shawl.
I am having a problem with rows 8 and 9 of the square motif. I have tried and tried but it just doesn't come out right.
Thank you.

I can't figure out where to come in with the single crochets at the beginning of Round 8. Do you use the middle of the previous chain 5 or the top of the cluster from round 7? please clarify. Thank you.

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

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?

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

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