a wedding in mind, but ended up wearing a cardigan instead. I'd had the pattern in my favorites on Ravelry* for months and finally succumbed to my curiosity. I mean, this has a SLEEVE! A shawl with a single sleeve. How does that even work? I love it.
I picture it with a Little Black Dress, pearl bracelet and a vintage hair comb holding back perfectly coiffed curls. Or skinny jeans and a tank top. Either one.
here or on Etsy here. It is clear and easy to understand, but for some reason I was having a tough time keeping the stitches consistent. I'd count each one, but somehow at the end of each row I'd be a little off. Or the stitches in each row wouldn't quite line up with each other. But the end result looks correct, so maybe it was just a figment of the imagination.
I'm a cardigan girl through and through, but shawls and wraps are so classy I may have to make a few more of them this season.
* I've been a member of Ravelry for a few years but never thought to mention it here. Think of it as a social network for yarn junkies, the Facebook of Knitters and Crocheters. You can find me on Ravelry by clicking here, or you can log-in and view the project page for this shawl here.
