I couldn't find any when I looked, so I'm happy to post some  Smiley

Ok, start with a SC, then pull the loop through to about 1" -


Hook through this loop (front to back), YO and pull through a loop -


Separate the original loop (2 strands) and the new thread you just pulled up (1 strand), then push your hook between them -


YO, pull through a loop, YO and pull through 2 on hook (SC) -


This is half the knot, so you do the same thing again. Draw the loop up to 1" and repeat the above -


Then miss 4 stitches and SC into the 5th -


When you do the next row you do this SC into the stitch between the 2 knots on the lower row.

I hope that makes sense!
Now I want to make the shrug with this yarn, I really like how it looks  Cheesy

Thank you thank you thank you salutingmagpies.. I got so frustrated last night and was doing it wrong.. no wonder!

Ok I don't understand this part:

32 knot-st loops. Make 2 knot sts, turn.

I have my 32 knot-st loops but what do I do with 2 knot sts?

Hi Marie, glad the pics helped you Smiley

So you have your 32 knot loops forming the second row of your shrug, with no more SCs from row 1 to join into.

The way to do the turn is to make 1 more complete knot as you've been doing (I think they call it 2 knot sts as there are 2 parts) turn your work, and join it with a SC into the middle of the last loop that you made - the SC that forms the centre of your knot loop.
You then continue across in the same way, form your knot and SC it into the middle SC of the loop on the previous row.
Does that make sense?

your best bet is to copy and paste into a word document or to print the pages you want from your web browser. I don't think craftster has a way to "download" directions yet.

My cousin liked it, when I gave it to her. And it fit! That's one of the things I like about this lacy look, it stretches in both directions Smiley
