Notes

I’m very happy with the finished project, but this wasn’t much fun to make. The garter stitch stripes got boring after a while and stranding the arrows on the wrong-side rows almost killed me.

Once I blocked it the arrows evened out and the yarn relaxed and it became a lovely squishable warm accessory that I’m happy to add to my scarf/shawl rotation.

So far, I’m 2 for 2 for the Westknits shawl club. My goal is to finish each one before the next arrives. Can’t wait to see what February brings.
