I can't remember what it was that inspired me to design a shawl - I guess it just seemed like a fun, mathematical sort of project that I could sink my teeth into. (Plus, I like to take a break from socks every now and then!) I had no idea whether I could make a decent sized shawl from one skein of yarn, but by using larger needles, the pattern yielded a full-sized shawl. The lacework is definitely more open than you see in most shawls, but it still drapes well, looks pretty, and makes you feel like a Princess when you put it on :-)
Our new Sweet yarn is really perfect for this type of a project. The bamboo and silk in the blend enhance the yarn's draping properties. The shawl is also accented with 04/0 beads around the border to give it a bit more weight. It hangs beautifully!
And kudos to Mr. Wendy, who once again has done a great job photographing our projects.
The Knit-Along for this shawl starts on 9/1. For details, you can visit The Store or The Ravelry Group. We would love to have you join us for this quick-knit project!
