Catholics here in the Philippines affectionately call the Blessed Mother “Mama Mary.” My mom has always been a devotee, specially to Our Lady of Guadalupe. When I showed her this shawl, she literally begged me to make it for her. :)
I love how it came out. With such light rayon thread, it feels like a hug when worn. Doesn’t really make you feel all that warm -- perfect for my mom who scarcely feels cold.
Used a smaller hook than recommended in the pattern, since I’m using thread instead of sport weight yarn.
Fringed it with cotton size 10 thread (a shade darker) because I couldn’t find the Raylon LOL. Finished the shawl in 3 days. Delayed adding fringe until the last minute. Just in time for mother’s day! :)
Love the pattern, even though the filet chart may have caused permanent damage to my eyes (I swear they’re a little closer together now).
