This is a filler project. I’m making it just because, with no plan in mind and no deadline. Just pure colorful fun! I prefer the body of the shawl to the iron lace edge, so I’m adding a few rows of that and removing a few rows of the lace - see mods below.


  • I repeated rows 15-18 FIFTEEN times (instead of 12), for an added 12 rows / 36 sts.

  • I skipped rows 97 to 100 of the iron lace edge.

Since I added 12 rows in the body and removed only 4 in the lace edging, I guess I had enough yarn in 1 skein to make the shawl 8 rows longer than the pattern calls for on size 6 needle, if that helps anybody.


October 19
