Tell us about yourself!
I use the size of this pattern for placing under Lamps on end tables, and the increased size that I make I use either as a center for a coffee table or dining table. I make 2 regular size and one larger size, they make great gifts!
I increased the original pattern to 30 stitches over all, just increase everything such as, binding off, etc. Um... increasing to make a shawl, you would probably be able to do that with 60 or75, or 90 stitches to begin, increasing accordingly. Hope this helped :)
