    I really like the shawl and want to make one.
    However, I cannot understand your pattern. In no way does my product look like your shawl. I am having difficulty finding the dc’s around which I am supposed to do a fp-3dc-together. I have the feeling that you’re using the ch-2 spaces as dc’s?
    I am by no means bad at crochet. (I have been crocheting for almost 20 years and have done literally 100s of projects)

        Note from designer:
        The dc’s around which the fp-3dc-togs are worked are created by the V-stitches of the previous row. Each fp-3dc-tog is a cluster worked around the post of a single dc stitch.

        I hope this helps!
