Is there a video to show how to make this shawl?

DROPS Design 18.09.2019 kl. 15:46:

Dear Mrs Hatice, there is no video showing how to work this shawl, but you will find some videos showing you how to work the techniques used here = short rows worked for the shawl, the drops and the leaves (you have to increase/cast off stitches for leaves in the short rows, as explained in the written pattern). . Happy knitting!

Schade, dass man an einer langen Seite beginnt. Wäre es umgekehrt, könnte man stricken bis man kein Garn mehr hat. So traue ich mich nicht, mit einer etwas geringeren Garnmenge zu beginnen.

Mosie 08.08.2018 - 00:39:

Name suggestion: Stratus (the line pattern reminds me of stratus clouds)
