Comfort shawl -- June 2009

Would you believe I still haven't blogged about more than half the projects I finished in 2009? Tsk, must do better! Here's one more for you, a simple little comfort project from early last summer.

It's a slightly enlarged version of Orlane's textured shawl recipe. It's still only a wee little shawl but it's very cosy and the yarn's just stunning.

I did:
  • (16 rows st st, 16 rows textured pattern) x3

  • 16 rows st st

  • 8 rows textured pattern

  • 28 rows garter stitch

  • cast-off by purling two together, twisting the second stitch each time (made a great and not too tight cast-off which is attractive on both sides)

Details: Textured shawl recipe by Orlane, knitted in Rowan RYC Silk Wool DK (six skeins) on (help! I can't remember! 4mm I think?) bamboo circular needles. Ravelry link.
