Cameo Shell Stitch Shawl
Pattern available free at : http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/scarves/cameo-shawl.html
Yarn used is Berroco Pleasure about 7-8 balls (I forgot)

There are a few typos/errors in this pattern. Here are my corrections/clarifications:

Clarifications to make it easier to understand for beginner knitters. My changes are in blue:

Begin Shell Pattern

Row 4 K2, yo, K to pattern marker, *K4 (P8, K5) end last rep K4 instead of K5,* sl pattern marker, K to 1 st before center marker, yo, K1, sl marker, K1, yo, K to pattern marker, rep between * last pattern marker, K to last 2 sts, yo, K1, sl1.

Row 6 ........ K to 1 st before center marker, yo, K1, sl marker, K1, yo, K to pattern marker, rep between * to last marker .......


Row 8 .............. K to last 2 sts, yo, K1, sl1.

Pattern change: I did not like the large holes going down the center of the back so I knit those yo's through the back loop to make them smaller. I think it made it look a bit nicer.

Overall, the pattern is not too bad...although I did have to frog a few rows here and there. Once you get to the shell stitch you might want to turn the TV off ;)

I'll try to take another picture when I'm done blocking it. It is still wet in these pictures. Oh..and I chose to block it with a wavy edge because the yarn decided that's what it wanted to do.

I agree, I think the straight edges on the one pictured on the pattern take away from the beautiful scalloped edge. Great job!! Love the color too!
