Just an FYI to Hannah Review by Jane

The instructions call for three hanks of yarn with 470 yards in each hank - that might be why it needs more than you thought! :-) It will be lovely when you're finished!

Lovely, light shawl, but requires at least twice as much yarn as the pattern calls for. Review by Hannah

This is a lovely, light (but warmer than it looks) shawl. The pattern charts are relatively easy to follow, but it calls for 470 yards of lace weight yarn. Thus far, I am only half done, and I've used nearly 700 yards. BUY LOTS OF EXTRA YARN!

Beautiful Shawl - takes a LONG time to make Review by NULL NULL

I am very experienced with crochet, and this was a challenging, but fun, project. While working with the pattern, I discovered that there was one section that requires you to divide the number of stitches in your row into groups of seven or eight, and three. It was complicated enough that I had to work with the numbers for about 30 minutes before I figured it out. This pattern really requires a lot of patience and determination, but if you have those qualities, the result is worth the effort.
