Here is a picture of the finished seraphina



It took me less than a week to finish it. I used around three skeins of LB Homespun yarn and a N hook.

mizduck- stick with it. The written instructions are flawed, but the pictures are good references. Once you finish the setup rows you should only be increasing at both ends and in the middle.

which color homespun did you use?  I think it's lovely on that shawl, and I don't think I recognize it.

I believe it's called Pacifica, but don't quote me on it. I got it on sale last year. I think it's discontinued.

I'm plugging along.  I've gotten to the point where I'm just increasing and it's sooo much easier. Grin EJ, yours turned out beautifully! Woo-hoo!  And I'm betting it's good and snuggly being made from homespun.

This is one of my current UFO's - I am making it striped, and am stumped about what colors to match together at this point. I started in dark brown (at the center) then switched to a mossy green, then a cream color. I want to stay with natural colors (no neon,etc.)
Any ideas? I will try to take a pic to post later.

thegothicl- I think you should start from the written pattern, but pay real close attention to the pictures (pictures don't lie). After you do a written sequence, go back and compare it to the picture. If you do that after every sequence you'll catch any left out parts from the written sequence right away.You may have to rip a couple of times, but it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.
