Notes

Final photos are a bit flat. May try for better pics at some point.

Light - MC - used 79g; ~270 yd.
yorkstone - C1 - used 63g; ~220 yd.
aire - C2 - used 87g; ~305 yd.

Placing yarn overs at each end of all WS rows between 1st/2nd and last/next-to-last stitches. Dropping yo when knitting back on the RS. (Given that Titus has no spring whatsoever, these yarn overs are essential to avoid a heavily puckered edge. The crescent shape still holds up using the YOs with this type of yarn.)

At the end of striped section, added a 6-row solid stripe in C1 and 2 rows in MC. Got the idea from debbieyslee. Love how her yellow wide stripe pops.

Had enough yarn, so added one full repeat of rows 9-20 to short-row section; i.e. repeated short rows 9 to 20 8 more times for total of 9 repeats.

Bound off in purl on RS with US #8 needle. Given that Titus has virtually no elasticity, I should have used a #9. Tried several of the stretchy bind-offs, but didn’t care for the look. Will see how the shawl looks after blocking.

After blocking, the bind off was fine. I like how it looks.
Wingspan: 74”
Depth: 20.5”
Forgot to measure before blocking; however, I’m pretty sure the pre-blocking measurements were the same as post-blocking.
