    Since I a fairly new to following patterns for crochet, I need to know what yarn and hook(s) for the Comforting Shawl LW2310. I love the pattern and do so want to make this shawl. Thank you for answering.

    I wish I could find a tutorial or video to your comforting shawl lw2310. I’m having a terrible time with Row 3 for some reason I can’t make sense of it. If you know where I can find a tutorial or a video please let me know
