Here is why I only gave 4 stars, as much as I wanted to give 5 I couldn't. I ordered this item a few yrs. ago and wanted to make the cover cuffed shrug with a hood, which I did complete, BUT, I also had to ask on a crochet forum for assistance in clarification of directions. Once I received the extra help I was good to go. It's a beautiful cuffed shawl and I will be making another one just as soon as I unpack my crochet/knitting/weaving materials.... It would seem whomever wrote and/or proofed the instructions didn't do a detailed job and correct job.
