Don’t you just love this?! It has to be one of my favorites for the year. I waited to feature it here because I knew there was an English translation coming.
The pattern was originally written in German with charts, but you can now find the English written pattern at the link provided on Ravelry. Basically, you now have it both ways, depending on your preference!
If you follow the charts, please take note that the stäbchen is actually a double crochet. The symbol made me think it was a half double at first. You’ll be able to guess then that the reliefstäbchen von vorne is actually a front post double crochet.
Once you can see the symbols and know the stitches, you can follow the chart with ease. However, if you prefer a written pattern, you’ll have that as well. And, bonus! If you follow along with both, you’ll learn how to use charts or vice versa.
When choosing the photo to feature for this project, I chose the version made by tekkie on Ravelry. (Don’t worry. I asked her for permission first.)
I really love this pink version, plus I wanted everyone to see a version made in readily-available US yarns since most of my readers are in the US. There are, however, several versions of this project so you should be able to choose just the right yarn for you.

People seem to be having a problem finding the English translation, so I thought I would provide some screenshots for you. I am not going to direct link to the English translation. It is wholly unfair to the designer to not receive at least a click to her Ravelry page, so you’ll have to get there on your own.
I’ve had several people tell me they don’t know where to click for the English translation, so this will give you step-by-step exactly where to click.
This is the link you need to click on Ravelry.

I’ve also been asked about the shawl pin used in this project. I don’t have anything absolutely definitive, but it looks like this is the ring she made, which is linked to June Gilbank’s pattern. I looked as close as possible at the photo of the shawl and it looks like the pick is just a pink crochet hook.
