This is my ninth shawl for 11shawls2011. It ought to have been the Westknits Mystery KAL, but I'm afraid the colours really weren't working out. It didn't help seeing some lovely colour choices on the revelry group!
So. I had a quick look through my shawl patterns last week. I fancied a summery shawl, chose the yarn as a wool.silk blend and a nice (to me!) summery colour. The shawl I've chosen is one which I've had in my pattern stash for years. I've not really given it much thought, it's in a colour which I don't much like and it's got kntted balls on the ends. I've decided it will be MUCH better in pale green and minus the balls.
It's a fun pattern, big and small circles.
One point to note: the chart symbols aren't the usual ones I expect from charted instructions. I'm used to seeing a blank square as 'knit on rs, purl on ws' and in this instance it means 'knit on rs and ws'. Took me a while to get used to this! And so many charts - I'm sure they can be cut down (something like 18 charts!) Some are only a few rows long. I'm on chart four now, and think charts two and three could have been put together. Apart from this, it's a great pattern.
This part, the little circles is easy-peasy, and a bit addictive!
