I spend a good amount of time looking at pictures of the shawl, and similar type patterns, and just decided to go for it. I zoomed in on images, I counted rows, I read comments and blogs for hints about how to make it work. And I did. I made mine narrower, longer, and with an i-cord edge. I also used way more colours. And I really like it.
The yarns I used were all Isager – the Spinni wool, and the alpaca lace. I bought little bags of colours, all mixed up, and then bought some of the alpaca to have a bright (the pink) and a light (the cream).
I think it will go with everything, because it already contains almost every colour. It’s also blanket-like, which is my preferred scarf/shawl size. Longer than I am tall, and oh so light and lofty, it just floats around my shoulders.
