I started making this last night while watching TV. I was just bored and didn't want to crochet on anything I had already started. I don't know how that's possible with six or seven projects already started, but it happened.
This pattern is written stupidly, by the way. And the chart is just wrong. I went by the chart and finally just had to guess at what it really meant. Stupid charts. Well, here. Let me show you what it says. And I quote...(except for the red -- that's me. Duh.)
Shawl: Crochet 6 ch with crochet hook size 5 mm with white and form a ring with a sl st in first ch. (Wow...that is a packed sentence.) Continue in M.1 and stripes – see above. (Huh?) Continue in M.1 with inc. NB! (Huh again? What the hell is "NB!"? And why is there an exclamation mark? Don't yell at me in a crochet pattern!) On every 3rd row crochet 4 tr groups in the middle ch, not 2. (4 tr groups is impossible to put into one chain unless you are crocheting with one strand of hair.) Discontinue inc after row 15 and now crochet 2 tr groups in the middle ch until finished measurements. Cut the thread and fasten end after the last row = 41 rows in total. (Whatever, bitch. You lost me at Crochet 6 ch. Oh, and your accent is stupid.)
Anyway, I just wanted to show it to you and tell you that my husband said it was ugly! Okay, maybe I wouldn't wear it to church or the symphony or maybe not anywhere, but I hereby declare that it is NOT ugly. So there.
I also hereby declare that I will never go to a symphony.
