    I would love to make this shawl but the only chart that shows the pattern is too small to work from. Filet crochet is easy to do if you have a good chart.

      The chart has now been split up and added to the downloads section. Hope this helps! – Nicola, Editor

  • Why no reply? I am also interested in making this shawl, but will have to move on to something else without these corrections.
