This week I have been mostly wearing.....

...my "Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl", made from Echo self-striping sock yarn from Fyberspates.


I took Peggy Pignato's pattern, made it not quite so mini (mine is 22" neck to tip instead of 17" in the pattern) added some beads on each row 5 and gave it a picot cast off. Mine was in sock weight, not DK as in the original, so was more of a knitting investment than some versions you can see out there.

You can see the shape of it in the blocking shot, all the wedges are not created equal and you increase at the beginning and end of every right side row, which means your two front sections are a little bigger, sit better and give you more coverage.

Special thanks go to Ravelry member Kermitina for selling me some extra yarn in my hour of need.

It feels like a shawl for Barbie compared to my last garter stitch project (The Hap Shawl) but it's pretty and I like it! x K
