As always, click the pictures to see them full-sized.
I’m in love with this one, I really am. It was so fun to make, the pattern was easy and I memorized it pretty quick, I knit it in one of my most favorite yarns, and it only took me, what? 5 days? It ended up measuring about 54 inces across, perfect. I wanted it to be a little small, so I can wear it like a scarf, because I’m not sure i’d wear it any other way.
I never really thought that I was a shawl person, but if I call it a scarf, than that’s okay. I really love it.
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Superwash Wool; Sport Weight. 1 skein plus, like, 1/4 of a second skein. This yarn, like I said, is one of my favorites. The colors are perfect, and it blocked really well.
Needles: US Size 8 24″ Circular
Modifications: I didn’t do the fancy pointy edge that the pattern called for, instead, I just added a couple more repeats, then a few rows of garter stitch, then Bound Off. I’m not a fancy-pointy-edge kind of Girl.
