The Wedding Shawl
Pattern: Print o'the wave lace, in my own rendition. I cast on nine full repeats of the lace pattern (borrowed from Eunny's stole) flanked by a half repeat on either end. Knit straight until casting off. Knitted cast on, russian joins, russian cast off.
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Laceweight, natural color, just over 2 balls (with only 2, it'd be only a few inches shorter)
Needles: Inox express circs, size 3
Size: 15x54 (unblocked), 20x70 (blocked), 19x64 (relaxed)
The weather was so mild that I hardly needed to wear this, but it was a delight to knit and makes such a splendid keepsake. Lovely and light when wrapped around my shoulders. And one of the reasons that I wanted a stole rather than a triangular shawl, aside from prefering the aesthetics, is that it doubles as a soft and snuggly scarf.
I could not be happier with this lace!
