Spring Creek is a versatile shawl that can be knit in either fingering or lace weight yarn, a single colour or stripes. It uses a variety of relatively simple stitch patterns to provide surface interest, and to pique your knitterly interest as well. The piece is finished with a striking, beaded lace border depicting dragonflies in flight.
This shawl can be knit in either lace weight yarn or fingering weight yarn, in a single colour, or in two contrasting colours.
The size depends on how vigorously you block the piece. My Malabrigo version measures 41cm deep by 205 cm around top edge. The Chantilly Lace version measures 41 cm deep by 197 cm around the top edge.

(If you intend to switch yarn to a regular, plump sock yarn I would advise having a bit more yarn up your sleeve in case. Malabrigo Sock is classed as a light fingering here in the database)
