This pattern is available for free.

This e-book contains newly edited versions of the Comfort Shawl and the Summer Shawlette, incorporating all known errata, new charts, clarifying the tricky bits, and even has a completely re-written, re-edited section in place of the one spot -- Row 35 -- which used to drive everyone crazy in the past.

The patterns are completely re-edited and re-done, with clearer instructions for both shawls.

Both shawls are included in the pattern, and start with a garter tab beginning (photo tutorial!), increase and divide into five sections, front, shoulder, back, shoulder, and front. Should shaping is worked into the shoulder sections so that the shawls stay put on your shoulders as you move around during your day. From shoulders down, separate instructions are given for the lace-paneled Summer Shawlette and for the plain-but-longer Comfort Shawl. A choice of a simple lace border, or a plain border, complete the PDF.

This PDF is FREE until midnight on December 31, 2016; it is also free on my website:

Thank you for your interest, and please do let me know if you find any pesky errata in there.
