Notes

Testing a beautiful shawl from this thread :-)

deadline: June 21

Easy knit, beautiful result. :-)

My unblocked gauge was 19 stitches for 4” in garter stitch.
I should have used a 4 mm needle instead of the 4,5 mm …. probably the yardage would be fine with a thinner needle.

According to designer “It is wise to have at least 100-125 yards remaining for chart D (for the small size)”

Final measurements:
Diameter: 47 in (119,5 cm)
Centerline: 15 in (38 cm)

it took me 20/24 hours to finish this shawl.

June 5:
It’s finished!!!

June 3:
yay!!! Paula dyed more yarn so i can finish my shawl!
Thank you Paula for all your help :-)
The new yarn colors are a little different. I’m restarting chart D in order to alternate yarns.

May 30:
6 rows of chart D done.
I’m running out of yarn :-(
I have enough yarn to knit only 3 more rows.
Let’s see if i can get some more yarn from the dyer.

Mas 29:
Chart C done.
So far I’ve used 82 grams of yarn.

May 28:
11 rows of chart C done.
So far I’ve used 64 grams of yarn.

May 27:
5 repeats of Chart B done.
So far I’ve used 50 grams of yarn.
