Yes!!! I started and frogged this shawl three times last summer, granted I didn't get very far in each of the repeats. The streamlined directions are great. Hurray for making my own Seraphine shawl, finally!

Thank you.
Was pointed here from Ravelry. This is much more sensible than the instructions I tried to fathom from the original.

I'm using Red Heart WW and a J hook. I crochet loose. So far I'm on my 3rd skein, but it's past my elbows and I want it that way to cover up my arms on the sides so I can use the ends to wrap around me. I decided not to use the N hook since I do crochet loose.

I'd like to make take this project with me on a trip I am about to take, but I am unsure of how much thread I will need. Does anyone know a good estimate for a fairly long Seraphina in no. 10 thread? How about if I use 2 strands? I would like to make it in graduated shades of red, and I have all the colors at home, but I am just not sure of the total amount needed. Does anyone have an idea? I don't want to be away from home and worrying about dye lots.

I am going to save both sets of instructions for when I try this as a project. All of your beautiful shawls are an inspiration :)

Thank you so much Amy for clarifying all the instructions in such detail. You've explained everything so clearly. And thanks to the creator for allowing you to share this with us here :)

This looks familiar. Looks like the Seraphina to me.

I don't think she should be claiming it as her own design. What do you think?

It looks like she's selling the finished item which she can't do online. And she does claim the pattern as her own. Maybe it's different, the pictures too small to really tell, but it does look the same. Well maybe not. The "points" do look like shells, but in between them look more open then the DC in Doni's shawl. And on my shawl they're kind of open (I crochet loose) but not that loose. So not sure... Without a clearer picture it's hard to tell--for me anyway.

Oh it's Doni's alright. I sent the link to Doni, and she e-mailed me & said she contacted the lady & said we'll see what happens.
It looks exactly like the one I made. It's a lighterweight yarn. What bothers me most is her claiming it as her design - she even named it something else. It's not right.
Doni's graciously allowed people to sell it with her express permission, and I think they should honor that, and give Doni the credit for the design.

p.s. another crochet buddy of mine contacted this person and gently informed her, but has had no response.

I did one last year for my sister. It was an MYC yarn, approx. 1200 ypp. I think I used about 2 to 2 1/2 skeins, less than a pound, but lotsa yarn! It was more like a thread, in a size 5 perhaps. Was so excited I forgot to get a pic. She is supposed to email me one soon.
