What color are you using! I really found this yarn alot easier to work with than I thought it would be!

I am using Pink Shimmer. I thought it wouldl be harder to work with too but I'm almost finished with no problems.

Amy I wanted to say I really like the streamlined version of the pattern. After you've been through the pattern a few times you really only need to reference the written instructions a few times, and after row 11 you really don't need the instructions at all.

I am working on one now with these AWESOME instructions! TY TY TY so very much. I have tried this one more times than I can count and always have gotten frustrated and said oh well we will go at this again later. Now I have it good. :D And I am so not a beginner in crochet but it just got me every time. Me thinks my secret pal will love you all and me for this one. :D I am using a p hook and a ww yarn but I wanted it light and lacier for the spring and summer for her.

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 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.
