Many thanks to you; now I need to try & get my hands on some Jo-Ann Sensations Rainbow Boucle Yarn as I love the seraphinas made up with this & coud use a snug shawl the weather here is miserably wet.

The directions are great, esp. when combined with the pics. I'm up to Row 10 and doing fine. I do have 2 questions though - are most people using an 'N' hook with WW yarn? I guess I should have known better... it looks OK but it's much.... airier? than I expected. All the finished shawls looked more... solid? than mine does. I kind of hate to think of frogging it. :-( About how many 'sequences' do you do on average (after row 14) if using say an 'L' hook?

I just saw this - thanks so much for this streamlined version. I've been wanting to do one of these and I just couldn't get it.

I'm working on one in Joann's Blue Boulce. The striping this yarn has is so wonderful! I got the hang of the pattern really quick and just love it!:manyheart

Thanks for this! This pattern is beautiful but frustrating at times and I am glad for the clarification. :hook

I'm making one, too! Thank you, Doni and Amy! Is Doni one of "us" now?

I'm using Rainbow Sensations boucle in red with a K hook. I'm not crazy about this yarn-it's hard to see the stitches and it attracts cat hair, but the striping is gorgeous and well worth the effort. And it's on sale this week at JoAnn's.

For newbies: I HIGHLY recommend practicing with regular ww yarn so that you can see the stiches clearly.

An N is going to make a much looser pattern. I'm making a spring weight one with baby yarn and an L hook. I'm sure yours will be beautiful and warm, just be a little extra careful about pulls on it.

I used rainbow boucle with a K hook and I've also used Caron Simply Soft with an I hook for a denser version.

Thank you for posting all these instructions! This is one I haven't tried yet.

I was wondering about the WW with an N hook. I think I crochet so lose that I could get by with a K hook.

I bought all the yarn for three seraphinas and then i looked at the comments about how hard it was and all the trouble crocheters were having and it made me lose my confidence that i could figure it out but I went ahead anyways and had no problems, but I think the chart helped lot!

I crochet loosely and have made several with WW and a K hook.

If its particularly thicker WW I might grab my L.

Yes!!! I started and frogged this shawl three times last summer, granted I didn't get very far in each of the repeats. The streamlined directions are great. Hurray for making my own Seraphine shawl, finally!

Thanks also for clarity of pattern dani and your little helpers too :D

the thing that helped me get this going was placing stitch markers at first on all the ch1's so I knew what was what for about 8 rows ..that is just me

Thank you.

Was pointed here from Ravelry. This is much more sensible than the instructions I tried to fathom from the original.

I'm using Red Heart WW and a J hook. I crochet loose. So far I'm on my 3rd skein, but it's past my elbows and I want it that way to cover up my arms on the sides so I can use the ends to wrap around me. I decided not to use the N hook since I do crochet loose.
