ACK!
So, instead of doing what I SHOULD be doing, I've started on this shawl. Kookaloo's right, quite the pleasant distraction (isn't crocheting just about always, though?)
And here's the problem...I'm on row 5 and already have encountered a problem.


Quote
Row 5: Ch 5 (counts as dc, ch 2), turn, (3 dc in next ch-2 sp, ch 2) across, end dc in top of beg ch-3 - 7 ch-2 sp.

WTF? The CH 5 is throwing me off...looks wonky to me...any suggestions?

NM, I figured it out...if I wasn't so dense, I would have seen the "3 dc in next CH-2 SP....grrrr...

This looks so great. I want to make one. I just started to crochet some weeks ago, but I want to do this and I think I can do (maybe with the help of my mom) but first I have to find some nice yarn and

the problem, maybe someone can help me. My problem is there is written use a N hook, but my problem what size would that be in German, what I found was that it is a 9, but I'm not sure if this can be and I know that I didn't get so big ones here. Sorry if this is a silly question ore someone ask this before, but maybe someone can and want to help me. Thanks.

Hi Gloomy, I'm in the UK and yep, its a 9mm hook for this pattern, BUT saying that, with things like shawls and scarves where the fit isn't precise I'd say just use the biggest hook you have and go for it  Wink It will make a difference to the size of the finished shawl though, but it should just mean doing some extra rows. I didn't do a gauge swatch and mine would've come out even bigger if I hadn't stopped 10 rows short  Smiley

Thanks Kookaloo_Starr  Cheesy
My biggest is an 3,5mm so well. But I get a 6 from my mom some minutes ago. Well I will just try it, I'm not that tall, so it shouldn't be a problem and if it is to small I can give it to my cousin.

Thank you very much Kookaloo_Starr

Gloomy - I'm using a 6.5mm, and almost finished the pattern. It's quite short. More child-sized than for an adult. I'm just adding extra rows to make up for it.

you'll laugh.... I started to make a halfmoon for Jezebel in a swap were in.... then she posted here and I unravelled it  Roll Eyes then she couldn't find the time with her beautiful new son to care for so I started it again....THEN I got a new kitten who won't leave me alone when I crochet so I'm only up to row 20 and I've had to mail  her parcel without a shawl after all  Sad
