The Loopy Ewe

This is my first project for Camp Loopy. It’s a KAL that can be any scarf/shawl/wrap that uses two colors. It must be finished by July 15th.

My actual shawl weighs 188 grams - meaning that I got about 106 yards extra combined in my two skeins. My yarn totals above are not accurate. They were based on the total amount of yarn I had LEFT OVER. But based on the weight of my shawl, I used 715 yards. A friend, using the same yarn, was unable to finish the main body of her shawl with a single skein of Glenhaven. She was about three rows short for the body section and had to switch to the contrasting color early because of that.
