It is beautiful, I like it.

This is a beautiful wrap but it would be helpful if we could see it laid out - instead of pinned sideways(?). Trying to follow a pattern without seeing a layout is like knitting in the dark.

I am very disappointed. I am tired of patterns that do not give you the most basic information, and checking with other sites, this oversight appears to be the fault of the site, not the original designer, or of Redheart Yarns. For those that would like to make this, unblocked it will measure 12"wide and 56" long. Blocked it will measure 13" wide and 66" long.

I recently made this lovely Soft Shoulder Shawl and I want to knit it again but would like it to be wider? is that possible? How may more stiches would I need to go to to achieve the extra width in the middle part and still keep the lace integrity? Thank you Vicky

It is possible, but it will take some work. In order to increase the width, you will need to increase you will need to do more pattern repeats in the beginning section, because that is the section that determines the width in the middle. To maintain the integrity of the pattern work the first increase section to the width you want before moving onto the lace middle section, this will also alter the length, unless you adjust the middle section to accommodate it.
