There will not be more than 308 sts on your needles.
There will only be 20 sts to cast off.
~Use heavier yarn for a larger shawl.
~If you use heavier yarn, say a DK then bump up your needle size to a 10 or 10.5
~My Nardini uses sock weight yarn.
~My new Nardini that I do with all of you will use Dk or Worsted Yarn just to see how it looks at the end.
~You could use more than two colors
~You could use a yarn that stripes (MC) and a solid yarn (CC).
The last clue will be given on March 1st. Please start a project page linked to this KAL since there will be winner(s) announced March 8th. However, you can’t win a prize without a project page. What are the prizes? It is a surprise for now. The last KAL I hosted there was a winner EVERY week and more than 4 grand prizes given at the end. Hope you join in!
