Project

Felicity Shawl

I only received 1 skein of yarn, instead of the two listed in the supplies. Therefore I had to end the neck wrap before completing the pattern.

jbmierke1994858 asked:
Is gauge wrong on this pattern. With size 6 needles, I don't come close to the gauge swatch and using bigger needles will use more yarn and I am worried I won't have enough
lorraine.2145516 answered:
You’re right about the gauge. I didn’t do guage in stockinette as required by the pattern. My guage in garter after blocking is 29sts=4”. I didn’t havE enough yarn to repeat row 119 two times. I went to finishing row instead. I like the fabric with guage on a 6 needle. So I didn’t change needles to meet guage. Finished size is 11” X 55” after blocking...much smaller than pattern of 73”X16”. It is more of a neckerchief, and certainly not a Shawl as pattern indicates. I’m going to add another photo to the project.

I received three skeins of yarn - two are the same colors, one is solid, but nowhere do I see directions for placement of the solid color? Can someone explain or suggest a remedy? Thanks in advance! Elaine
lorraine.2145516 answered:
My personal feeling is that you received the wrong yarn. My skeins were all the same color, and I don't feel that this pattern was written for two colors. I'd try to contact someone at Bluprint for verification, however.
