Silver Leaf Shawl is off the needles and on my shoulders!
I thought my bright idea to add a little picot lace edging would be better
than just the abrupt garter bind off but it took me forever to do it!
Unblocked and right off the needles.
It is a big shawl.
Light and airy and wonderful to wrap around my shoulders when I have a sleeveless dress on.
The leaf lace portion of the pattern is a good knit-
easy to do once you realize it is a two sided lace chart!
I love the way the yarn switched its coloring right on the stem of the leaves!
The shawl was wider than my blocking area- so I folded the top down...
and the other tip needed a fold back, too!
It blocked out to just over 6' by 36" !
I used two balls of Chroma fingering twist (superwash) in the Surfs Up! colorway on #7 needles.
This is a really nice pattern and I will make it again in a smaller size!
(I added several pattern repeats that were not in the original since I had to order more yarn.)
It is absolutely gorgeous! So beautiful, congrats.ReplyDelete
It's stunning! The colorway is ideal for the pattern.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! That is a PERFECT color for you.ReplyDelete
I LOVE it. I was looking at that pattern just the other day but not too impressed with the ones I saw. Yours should be on the pattern page. I would have bought the pattern if I'd seen yours!ReplyDelete
That is BEAUTIFUL! Love how the leaves wrap across. Sorry the edge took a long time, but it is such a nice balance at the bottom. Wow!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous finish. Love the color!!ReplyDelete
