  1. LOVE this!! Like that it doesn’t have the “fringe” ends. Thanks!

      Thank you!!

      • I love this delicate pattern and already know who I plan to make one for. I have just started back crocheting after many years …….am wondering if it is possible to increase this pattern to more of a shawl size and if so can you explain how I would do it? Thanks so much sharing your lovely designs. Linda

        • Beatrice Ryan Designs

          Yes…One thing you can do is use worsted weight yarn and a larger hook… That will make it larger… or you can add increments of 11 extra chains for each pattern repeat you want to make to add length and then just do as many rows as you like to add width…

          • wonderful…..thank you so much for your prompt reply. And for helping a novice with your guidance. Am anxious to get started.

          • Beatrice Ryan Designs

            No problem!!! I bet it will turn out great!!

  2. oh so pretty! Love this scarf, looks so soft and cuddly. Thanks for sharing the pattern for your winters edge scarf!

  3. I love this! It looks so snuggly. And I just love the sequin sparkle.

  4. I am having problems with row 2. I am coming up with 41 stitches instead of 4o stitches. please help.

    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      At the end of Row 2 it reads… 4 (5 Dc Shells), 9 X Sts and 2 Dcs. 40 Sts total
      If you check your work with this you will have (4 shells that are made of 5 Dc each = 20 sts, 9 X Sts which are 2 sts each= 18 sts and 2 Dc = 2 sts so 20+18+2=40 stitches

      • Ok, I have the 5 (5 dc) 12 (X’s), 2dc. I can’t figure where I went wrong?

        • Beatrice Ryan Designs

          My best guess is you are either not skipping the designated stitches correctly, or you are doing the X stitches wrong and getting them in the wrong stitches… You will have to read the directions very carefully to find where you are going wrong.. When I have issues like this I re read the row over and over… and all of the sudden see where I am wrong… Good luck!

    • I am still having problems with row 2.

      • i found the problem ( i think), once i chained the 41, did the sc across, I finally figured out the pattern on row 2 but coming to the end of row 2 there are not enough stitches to complete row 2 . I am short 1 chain so I cannot do the last DC to complete row 2. n This is where I need help. I do get the 4 (5 shells), 9 (x’s), only 1 DC and not 2 as in what should be 2DC.

  5. What a lovely delicate pattern getting ready to work it now! thanks for sharing


    • Beatrice Ryan Designs

      Hi Mary Ann… I listed the yarn I used in the pattern… it reads ” Pictured is yarn by James C Brett in Aria, color Z5…” It is a gray yarn… I am not sure why it looks blue/lavendar on your screen… but this is the correct color… I hope you love it when your are done!! Thank you!!!

  7. Thank you for this beautiful pattern! I made it as a gift for a friend, and it turned out so well I’m anxious to make one for myself now.
