    Beautiful pattern! I only wish that your print friendly version included the whole pattern, as it only includes rows 53 to the end and doesn’t include photos. Is there a chance this could be updated?

  2. Diane says:

    This shawl is beautiful! However I cannot download the pdf of the pattern as it just has the last part of the pattern, starting at row 53.

    Thanks for making it free. Will be looking at other of your patterns as I would love to support your charity.

      Sometimes browsers are not compatible with this. I have heard that emailng the pattern to yourself solves this issue. Try that. If all else fails, email me through the contact button and I can send it to you.

      xoxo, Kristin
