I would love to find out more about the CAL.
so would I.
This book is the first I have purchased for the New Year. Please sign me up for the CAL and let me know what I need to do to join. The charted designs are fab!
I love the book! I am working on the Raeanne Shawl Sweater. The back is nearly complete so I turned to the "Finishing" to see how the whole thing will go together. Unfortunately, I do not understand the directions which say "join shoulder seams as for joining motifs above." Join shoulder seams to what? The back? The front? The little arrow labeled "shoulder seam" points ambiguously to either the top outer motif or the seam between motifs or both top motifs. There is no corresponding "shoulder seam" notation anywhere else. And how does the straight edge of the shawl collar match up with the angular front edge.
None of the photos show what is going on underneath the shawl collar or I could probably figure it out myself. I love this sweater and have already invested a great deal of time (and money) in it. I would really appreciate some clarification. Thanks.
The instructions for the Reanne Shawl sweater don't make any sense. I have crocheted all the squares, attaching them according to the diagrams as I went, but the shawl collar cannot possibly line up with the body. There are ten squares in a stair-step configuration that are supposed to connect to the five straight line inner squares of the collar. Can anyone explain how this is supposed to work?
I too am unclear about how to go about connecting the squares. I started the pattern, and, when I came to the connecting directions, became overwhelmed. I think it would be a great idea if the author or someone else who has a handle on this technique offer us a tutorial on youtube. Any takers? Would love to utilize that book more.
