Comments about TAHKI YARNS Falling Leaves Shell PDF:

I am an experienced lace knitter and the neckline was a challenge. I ended up using 12 stockinette stitches for a medium size and still had to fudge the right shoulder to keep the pattern from undulating to the right.
Would not recommend for beginners. But it is gorgeous!!!

      Believe it or not, this was my first time at a lacy pattern with multiple yarn-overs .
      IT WAS NOT HARD and the sweater turned out terrific.

        If I decide to knit this shell pattern, I'll make significant changes. I think the back should be leaf patterned, as is the front, with some back neckline shaping.

          Comments about TAHKI YARNS Falling Leaves Shell PDF:

          While I love the stitch and the yarn, I am making significant changes. I'm knitting it up in the round using the candle flame stitch all around the back too. Because I'm doing it in the round, I've taken the opportunity to shape the arm holes and make it more of a tank shape. I've also added another two full rounds (additional 48 rows) to lengthen. It's really a gorgeous pattern and once you get the lace pattern established, it's fairly easy to remember. I love it so much, I'll probable make another one or two in different colors!!!
