How amusing and amazing making this shawl with variegated yarn is!!

After enjoying looking other beautiful Multnomahs, I vaguely picture my Multnomah I want to make, which should have a plain inner part and an elegant outer with flare.

I think it turned out pretty close to what I aimed.

-do 1 center stitch instead of 5 with 3.5mm needle for my ideal inner.
-knit the garter section up to 233st.
-use a bigger needle, 4.0mm for the feather and fan section and do half a repeat (9sts) to get more lace on the centre and the edge, hoping making a little flare.
-I managed 12 repeats of the f&f.
-Knit 1 row then Elastic Bind Off with a bigger needle, 4.5mm/jp8.

This is a KAL project with lovely Japanese knitters, otoyan, kumiko and mejiro1181.
Had great days of knitting it along with them.
