Needles & yarn
US 5 - 3.75 mm
Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM)
5 skeins = 875.0 yards (800.1 meters), 250 grams
Three Bags Full in Vancouver, British Columbia

Inspired by a shop sample at Three Bags Full, originally made by owner Francesca and blogged about here The Koigu is much thinner than the yarn called for in the pattern so the resulting “shawl” is more of a large scarf. I changed the pattern by knitting approx. 144R of garter (until there are 293 stitches on the needle, 146 each side and 1 centre stitch.) and an extra pattern repeat of lace so that I knit 56 rows of lace instead of 48. I used two skeins of the 142109 pink colour, one a bit darker than the other. I ended up mixing this colour into the others for the entire shawl, sometimes mixing three different colourways by alternating yarns, sometimes every 2 rows, sometimes every row. I couldn’t seem to make my colours look good together otherwise. I knit 9 rows of garter stitch for the border and then used a Lucy Neatby suspended cast off. This made a nice round edge for garter stitch but had to be done very loosely.The finished shawl is 236 grams: garter stitch - 109 grams, lace - 112 grams, garter border - 15 grams.
I used:
2 skeins (100 grams) - 142109 - pink, blue, gold, lavender, etc.-to start and running throughout until the end
1 skein(50 grams) - 30895 -wine, pink, chocolate brown
1 skein (50 grams)- 441116-blue green, lavender, coral, pink , etc
18 grams - 20481 - a brighter version of the beginnning colour
15 grams - Indigo Moon midnight blue - to finish off in the 9 rows of garter stitch and cast off.
