  5. About how many yards of yarn is needed to complete this lovely shawl using your recommended yarn and hook size? Also, is this written in UK, or US terms? I don't often see hdc used in US patterns, and I LOVE that stitch! This shawl looks PERFECT for my Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable in the Parrot Colorway! Or, Gems, if I can ever find that elusive lovely colorway (I think that's the Colorway name). Thank you so much for sharing this pattern! Even I can do this... I think! It's simply lovely.

    1. Hi Maschelle! I used 500g (1500 metres), which is 1650 yards! The Red Heart Boutique yarns are so pretty - they will be perfect for this. Please post a photo on my Zooty Owl Facebook page when you have made yours!
