This is gorgeous! I’ve got one question – when do you work Row 1 of the 3 row petal pattern sequence? I think I’ve messed up; in the body of the pattern, row 4, I started with row 2 of the petal pattern sequence. Is that correct? Love your work! Thanks.
I know you wrote this 5 years ago, but I was wondering the same thing. It looks like mine is going ok right now and appears to match with the chart. I wonder if the petal pattern is generic to other patterns and for this particular one, you don’t need that row? I hope your shawl came out nice 🙂
I don’t understand your questions, however, this is what I answered to the comment you are referring to: the petal pattern section is even in rows for gauge swatch purposes. The top down increasing shawl begins at “Instructions” section and is a 3-row repeat, repeating rows 5 – 7.

Kristin, you create beautiful patterns. I knew you were from Florida the moment I saw the shawl. I was a Floridian for 47 years and am now retired in Ecuador for 5 years, with lots of time to crochet. I am looking forward to trying your patterns as they have to be some of the most beautiful I have seen. Many Thanks!
Dear Kristin, I love your crocheted shawl (and knitted ones). I do the Key West crocheted shawl, with the diagram it is so much easier for me to do the project. Thank you for the diagram and the pattern of the shawl. Dare I say this – you are a genius because the shawl designs are simple yet elegant, crisp motifs/themes, full of clarity and uncluttered. Furthermore, you be so bold and so brave to become a company that does hand-dyed yarns and threads that are so fine!
Thank you very much 🙂
Love this shawl! Made one for my Aunt with loops and threads payette yarn.
