Another KAL, another one skein shawl. I've just posted off to my mum (to share with sister and neices) a big bag of shawls, cowls and mitts!
This was Inspiration knits ravelry September KAL. I won a pattern as a prize in a previous KAL, and had chosen Knit Night, so I ust had to join in on this KAL.
This is the garter stitch version. There are lots of variations. you can keep it plain, or you can have a picot csdt on, beads or none, a choice of eyelets and/or picot cast off, or plain all the way. After 16 garter riidges I decreased the number of stitches I cast on at the beginning of each row, so it's slightly shorter.
I chose picot beads for cast on (just a pity the beads don't show up!) and a fully beaded eyelet row before a plain cast off.
And yes, I missed an end! Had to darn it in after taking the photos...
The beads are Rainbow triangle Miyuki size 5s and the yarn is Countess Ablaze Tia Merino in Ice Queen.
I'll actually wear the shawl around the front, but the one photo Mr C took on Sunday was terrible, so I tried to take a selfie, not well!
A really useful, easy knit, and nice yarn too!
