Comments

I love this beautiful shawl, please if it is possible could someone double check the pattern. There seem to be a problem I can not find instuctions on how to work the 4th section in the very first paragraph, I found it in the second paragraph. The title of shawl again is Metropolitan Shawl. Margie Wong
I found an error in the original reproduction leaving out a sentence about the 4th section. I've corrected the pattern. Reprint and you should be all set. Let me know if you have any other trouble. :)

I love the pattern but do not know how to use hairpin. Do do you have a version infull crochet that I can use for my mother. I did all the other's that you have. I like this one for my MOM.

Thank you

Josette

Sorry, the original pattern is only done in hairpin lace.
