Notes

Another fun and easy lace knit by Romi!

I knitted an extra two rows in the main body of the shawl as I thought I would have plenty of yarn, however this was my undoing as I ran out of yarn during bind off; thankfully I had an extra skein in stash.

What I learned:

  • you knit faster when you think you are going to run out of yarn!
  • blocking is everything (well almost).
  • Plucky Knitter yarn is gorgeous to work with.

Finished Size: 45 inches x 20 inches after blocking
