The Mystery Machine was more of a challenge for me. How could I adequately portray the scene of so many zoinks, jinkies, and scooby snacks? I finally struck on the scalloped floral edging and the soft crescent shape that reminded me of the flowers on the Mystery Machine itself. I love the way this design hugs your shoulders. The shawl could be made wider and longer by using more of the yarn. I chose to be a bit conservative in my yardage.
