Print o' the Wave - Sarah Don

Has any body had trouble with this Shetland pattern or is it just me?

I don't think I've ever seen Sarah Don's version; 'Print o' the wave' is a traditional pattern and there are many variations of it out there.

Eunny Jang has a free PDF pattern for a Print o' the Wave shawl if you want to compare hers with Sarah's.

I did read a note from Eunny that said:

"...As written, Chart B for the edging contains an error. The second-to-last stitch of rows 9, 11, 13 and 15 should be marked as a k2tog."

Hope this helps.

yes, Eunny has two versions, a regular lace and an edge. Her pattern is for a 16 stitch repeat; I used a 17 stitch repeat recently (from a book published in 1897) and I believe there are others availabe for comparision on the web... one is a 22 _3 stitch repeat; another a 34 stitch repeat; and yet another an 18 stitch + 24 repeat.
