Has any body had trouble with this Shetland pattern or is it just me?
"The Art of Shetland Lace" 1980 edition.

yes, Eunny has two versions,

yes, Eunny has two versions, a regular lace and an edge. Her pattern is for a 16 stitch repeat; I used a 17 stitch repeat recently (from a book published in 1897) and I believe there are others availabe for comparision on the web... one is a 22 _3 stitch repeat; another a 34 stitch repeat; and yet another an 18 stitch + 24 repeat.

Eunny Jang has a free PDF

Eunny Jang has a free PDF pattern for a Print o' the Wave shawl if you want to compare hers with Sarah's.

I did read a note from Eunny that said:

"...As written, Chart B for the edging contains an error. The second-to-last stitch of rows 9, 11, 13 and 15 should be marked as a k2tog."

Hope this helps.

I don't think I've ever seen

I don't think I've ever seen Sarah Don's version; 'Print o' the wave' is a traditional pattern and there are many variations of it out there.
