Hello! I saw the chart right at the time I'm worrying what i should do with my yarns! however, the yardage I have are 400 per row, I have 1200 meters, which are 3 rows. What size would you suggest me to make? Thank you!

Susan, I haven't worked this pattern, but, it looks to me you would start at the end of the last roll you crocheted and continue completely around to the other corner. Hope this helps.

There are 14 stitches in the fan. I would count the number of stitches from the corner to the center at the bottom. Divide by 14. You will need a multiple of 14 plus 7 to get the center point to be at the bottom of the shawl. I hope this helps.

Glenna.."tr" indicates treble crochet.

Tr stands for a treble stitch. It is like a double crochet stitch but you wrap yarn on hook three times instead of two. I am sure you can google it to get help.

tr stands for treble crochet. Or triple crochet if that makes it easier to remember.

I just downloaded this very interesting pattern and read your question. I think "tr" means triple crochet. That's what I going to do. Isn't this a beautiful idea?

Dear Glenna
I hope someone already answered your question, and that you're already on your way to making this shawl. In case you still don't know, tr is the abbrevistion for the treble (or triple) crochet stitch. You can do an internet search for tr and get directed to many sites with photo & video tutorials. If this stitch seems unwieldy to you, try working double crochet stitches (dc) in place of each tr st (stitch). Best of luck to you!

tr means treble crochet Just like a double but wrap one more time You will then pull the yarn through two loops on hook 3x :-)

I plan to make this one for myself. It looks fantastic, and I really like the drawings with symbols representing stitches, etc., but I have one (dumb) question. What does "tr" mean in the pattern directions?

If you are in the UK the tr for us would be triple tr you would wrap the wool around the hook twice.
It really is a lovely pattern

thanks for your reply, I have done the Shawl now I am on the border. I have done it in Angora and it is so soft. I love it, going to make another one when I have finished this one.

i absolutely love this pattern. I completed the shawl with no problem but I do not know where to begin the edge. it doesn't say how many stitches in and the beginning edge did not turn out correct. in order for the point to be correct I would need to know where to begin the first stitch. I have tried several times and just can not get it. HELP!!!! I want to use this border, not something else. thank you.
