    I just completed this shawl in Caron Cakes Funfetti and it is great! I watched your tutorial until I got the hang of the pattern and off I went, so thank you. Watching your videos makes it so much easier to learn new stitches/patterns that seem confusing in writing.

    I’m wondering if the updated instructions are available yet? I figured several things out by comparing instructions to diagram, but somewhere in rows 9-12 I gave up until I can spread it all out and make marks on diagram.

    Hi Mikey,

    Your tutorial is amazing, and I wouldn’t be able to replicate this shawl without it. Thank you so much for taking the time to do these.

    My question: I naturally crochet tightly and my sprays are starting to buckle, do you think that I should go up a hook size? I don’t think it’s going to correct itself as I do more rows due to the added weight of the yarn. I wasn’t sure if this piece is blocked after it’s finished.

    Thanks again for all that you do!

    Hi, Mikey and Laura Jean, I love the pattern and appreciate the work that went into it. I usually use word-based patterns, then graphs, and use tutorials as the last thing, but was not able to figure this pattern out without the tutorial. It is nice to have all the resources to learn from.

    I have a couple of comments: for the start of each row, instead of saying “sl st to ch 1 sp” I think it might make more sense to say “sl st *in* ch 1 sp” . I was taught that when you sl st *to* a specific stitch you sl st in each stitch, so I was sl st in the the dc and the ch1 and then trying to work the v-stitch – it looked very sloppy. When I watched the tutorial, it appeared that one row would be finished, the work would be turned with *no* chains made, and a single sl st would be worked right in the ch1 sp of the v-stitch; this made things look much better.

    I also found it a bit difficult to figure out the start of row 8 from the chart, it wasn’t clear that the v-stitch that isn’t on the diagram *does* need to be made, and by the time I got to row 10 I figured out that I needed to look at the opposite end of the diagram and just adjust it to be a starting v-stitch.

    For keeping track of stitch pattern for repeats, I am using rows 9-12 to guide me. What row do you suggest finishing the work on? An “11” (the 9 dc in the ch-4 loop) or a “12” (the dc/ch1 combos in the 9dc clusters)?

    I am making this shawl now in Faerie Cake and I am in love with it! Such a gorgeous pattern and I love the way the colors flow. I did notice a few errors in the written instructions that I was able to figure out using the diagram (I had never used diagrams before the Crochet-Along, so thanks for that, Mikey!). Do you want me to tell you what I found, and if so, what’s the best way to communicate that? Thanks for all the wonderful patterns and tutorials that will keep me busy for a long time!

    Lovely shawl. Pattern needs some adjusting to match the chart diagram.

      Thanks… Another viewer is helping us to write out the corrections we need. Sorry for the inconvenience. It took us 7 hours to write it out and it was really hard. Any help is much appreciated.

    A few notes on the directions from the Shawl pattern:

    1. The Shawl pattern row instructions start with a ‘Sl st to …’ which is not needed for the shawl. I puzzled over that instruction and then checked the diagram which did not show it at all. That resolved the matter for me and the shawl is proceeding just fine without it.

    2. The diagram needs a key to symbols. I could not figure out the circle on some rows until I went back to the written directions and found out it was a ‘bpdc’.

    3. Need to include an instruction on which rows to repeat until the final rows.

    4. Pictures are great for showing what the result is.

      I was just wondering if the answer to the question of the Meringue and Virus Shawl is about the same?

    Hi Mikey, I love this pattern, I made the Fluffy Meringue pattern into a Blanket for a great, great niece that will be arriving in January. I really enjoyed making it. I am going to do this one now. Thank you for showing it on youtube it is easy to follow if you can’t understand the drawing.

    I would really love to know the colors of the yarns for the color control. Those would be great for my daughter!
