Knitting
Neck / TorsoShawl / Wrap

Notes

Finished size: 63” wide x 30” long.

I used 6.2 oz (177g) of yarn, but the shawl weighed 7.5 oz (212.6g) with the beads.

Used 528 size 6 white-lined crystal clear AB round Japanese seed beads #13SB0268 (fusionbeads.com).

10 days to knit.

142 rows / 425 stitches.

This shawl was done as a Mystery/No Mystery KAL. Once I sneaked a peek at the finished shawl, I immediately signed up for it. This pattern had so many interesting stitches in it that I was never bored with the knitting. Again, the charts and written directions are perfect and very easy to follow. Tiziana always includes detailed notes at the beginning of the pattern to make knitting it so effortless. Another winner here!
