11-4-10 I kept going with the pattern so that I had 23 chain loops on either side of the center loop. That will make sense to you if you have the pattern, I just did a few more sets of repeats. The shawl measures about 54” wide, not including dangly bits. I did not use the entire skein, but ended in a good place since I wasn’t sure how much yarn the flowers would take. I’ll probably wear it granny bandit style, except ouch, I have to let it live at the shop first!
10-11-10 Started the shawl for a shop sample, to show off the Kirameki and Kristin’s pattern at the same time. The pattern is easy to work and the yarn is great, so soft for a Noro yarn. It’s a thinner gauge than called for and I thought about going down to a D hook but didn’t want to change it since it’s a store sample. The great thing about this pattern is I can easily add more rows for a larger shawl if I need to, although I’ll probably stick to a scarf size. We’ll see.
