  • Question…
    Are you really supposed to chain 452 for this shawl?
    Maybe 252? This would be large enough to cover my entire living room. Really?

      Hi Cathy! The wrap is oversized which is why there are so many chains. Also, the amount of chains is large because the stitches make up the length of the shawl and the rows make up the width. This particular stitch is also lacy so it requires 5 chains on each side of the picot to make the “trellis” which also adds to the amount of chains. You are always welcome to make it smaller to suit your needs. Hope this helps! – Nicola, Editor
