I just started on the Sweet Pea Shawl this morning. I have up to Row2 complete. Not a difficult pattern, really, but one you do have to pay attention! So far so good, even though it had me scratching my head for a bit as I was starting on Row1 & trying to following the directions properly.
Anyway, by the end of Row1, I only had 16 shells instead of 20? I guess it's possible my fdn was short; I didn't go back and count. I'm using TLC Cotton and size I hook. My assumption is that my fdn count is off because that should have little to do with gauge (??), but I'm wondering if anyone else has done this?
