The Sugar Maple Shawl (fall 2010, p. 58) includes no fewer than 11 special stitches, not mentioning the basic "sh patt." Would it be possible to post stitch diagrams of some or all of these stitches here on the web? And possibly a diagram of the first section of the shawl?

This is a beautiful shawl. I'm making it now with yarn from my stash.   I want to make it again with the suggested yarn because I love the fall colors.  The pattern is a bit tricky until you get it down, but it will be well worth the effort

Does anybody have a sample in a solid color?  I'd like to see the stitch pattern without the varigated color changes.

Jan: Here is a picture of the pattern detail. I'm not crazy about the solid color, which came from my stash. It is Luster Sheen yarn. I hope this helps you.

The design was intricate and I will not be surprised that in the coming months, this type of shawl will become a fashion trend on this side of the world. term papers

It's fall 2011 and I have decided to make this shawl.  Read thru the directions, but am confused.  I really think this pattern could have been presented much better - with a diagram to show how it is shaped and a few dimensions AND a stitch diagram layout.

Is that the stitch type & count indicated after the 'dash' on each row? If it is, tt does not match the order of the instructions just given.

How or where is some help to de-mystify these instructions?  thanks a bunch in advance for some help, molly z.
