Wow! Everyone loves this shawl! Review by Tovia

I'm working on the sixth (or maybe seventh) of this pattern...in fact, I've almost worn out the paper copy, and had to come and get a digital copy...I made two for Christmas gifts...and one for myself...I found filet easy to do (I never crocheted before last July!)...but maybe because I do counted cross stitch, following a chart comes easy. Katheryn assumes you KNOW the basic stitches, and the basics of Filet, so she doesn't waste space explaining them...(both are easy to find on the Internet and YouTube...the author used nazli gelin thread, which it love...but I also used other thread selections and was quite happy with the result. I highly recommend this pattern, and anything Kathryn Smith designs!

Perfect Special Gift Review by Ruth

I worked up this shawl and it is beautiful. Make sure you understand basic filet crochet stitches as these were not given clearly in the pattern.
