but i'm not sure how  Sad

i just went into Free People the other day and saw this http://gcbstyle.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=98121-6BEKUW1N0HP&Product_Code=FPshawlgrey.  at first (because i didn't see the manequin it was on) i thought it was a saucy little skirt.  Grin  then i looked up from the table it was on and saw it on the manequin and fell in love with it.  but i ain't paying no $59 when i can probably knit it on my own. 

i'm just kind of clueless as to what type of stitch should be used.  so far i've come up with "grey yarn knitted in a circle and add a ribbon at the end."  any suggestions?  Huh

That shawl is lovely!  It looks like it is crochet to me.....like an open shell lace with chunky yarn maybe.  I have made afgans with similiar patterns to this.

......goes to look for pattern

I am in love with this shawl!  Has anyone found a pattern similar to this one? I love the ribbon detail! 

bumping this, hoping someone has found a similar pattern!

i'm with you, wandalynn123!  i want to make this shawl so bad it hurts Smiley

i don't think we need a pattern that'll be exactly the same; maybe just a link to some kind of open-weave knit pattern would suffice.  or even guesses as to what size needles to use and how many stitches to CO for sm, med, & lg.  (actually, that wouldn't be too hard to figure out - maybe i'll do that tonight)

but does anyone know any good sites that have patterns for different kinds of knit sitiches?  like just knit designs, not actual patterns?  does that make sense?

and one other thing, what kind of stitch would we have to make along the top of the shawl so that we could thread the ribbon through afterwards?

I would say if you used some kind of SUPER bulky yarn, like Lion Brand's Chenille T&Q or Rowan "Big Wool Tuft" you could create something similar by knitting a row, then purling three together with two yarn overs between.  I'd definitely swatch it to see if you like it first, though, because even with a super bulky yarn, it probably won't work up to anything that LARGE.  (I think that looks like even a quad crochet, but it could be a bulky enough yarn that it's just a treble.)  You'd have to figure out how big you'd need it, figure the guage and make sure you've got multiples of three stitches. 

I don't know if it needs a seam, if it closes with that ribbon.  Anyway, for the bit at the top where the ribbon runs through, I'm envsioning some kind of picking up of stitches with a buttonhole type edging.  I don't know how it woud be done, really.  I think it'd be best just to talk one of your crocheter friends into making one for you.  :-)  I think it probably wouldn't take much more than one ball of a good super bulky yarn, and couldn't possibly take more than a couple hours to crochet.   In fact, I'd be up for making one if someone wanted to provide me the yarn they like best.

Word of advice....Listen to Lothruin!!!!   She made the Bourne Supremacy Scarf from yarn to stitch!  Of course, I'm still knitting that 1x1 rib but I'll have my scarf done in no time!!!!!

I would agree with Lothruin . . . the crochet looks like a treble (maybe a triple treble) done with a bulky yarn. The top row, with the ribbon running through it, gives the best example. Crocheting isn't that bad, it just takes so much yarn!
