  1. Thank you for your triangle of fans stitch crochet tutorial. I love it!

  2. The tutorial is excellent. I watched the entire thing, and I would really like to make this shawl, but I need written instructions. I tried working along with you, but I got behind early on, so I could not continue. And every time I stopped the video to catch up, it started over from the beginning when I resumed! I looked all over the page, clicked on many links (some accidentally), but cannot find the pattern. Is it available? If not, I will watch the video again and try to transcribe it, but that will have to be when I have time and the house is quiet.

    Thank you for the tutorial. It is a lovely shawl, and I have been looking for one to make.

    Also, what weight yarn and what hook size is used?

    1. Lynn, You can change the speed of the video under “Settings” and just click on the video (the picture) and it should pause; then click again on the video and it will start up again. HTH, M <.

    2. Lynn I put on the closed caption setting and copied down the wording as she did her video. I wrote the pattern in words that I would understand later when sitting down to make it.

      1. Did you ever make the shawl? I would gladly pay for the pattern.

    3. I transcribed it until the tutorial quit. Then I couldn’t get it to work. I kept trying different things.

  3. You lost me at the end when you said to repeat this row….you kept pointing to 2-3 different rows. I would have found more useful if you would have specified the row you were referring to.
    Can anyone tell me if we repeat row 6 or 10 or 9….which one did she mean at the end of the video?

    1. I don’t know what happens next. I think I tried all those repeats but couldn’t make it work. I love the pattern and would gladly pay for it.

  4. Why isn’t there a written pattern for this? It would be so much easier for a LOT of people!

  5. Connie Dolter says:

    I need a written pattern.:-)

  6. Where do I find a written pattern?

  7. I’ve tried to do this several times. I’m actually good at crochet and figuring out patterns. Except, I can’t get this one to work. I’ve tried it several times. I wrote down each step. I followed along a few times with the tutorial. Still I can’t go any farther than the tutorial. I’d gladly pay for a written pattern.
