Notes

Probably the nicest, cutest and most elegant shawl pattern I’ve ever came across!! The stitches are very delicate, and border is exquisite!

I had a little trouble figuring out how to start it, the first few rows of the pattern were a little confusing for me, but once you get going, it becomes way easier. I decided to repeat the pattern for the body 48 times instead of 43 because I was using a smaller needle than the pattern called for, 3.25mm instead of 4mm.

Also, I must say I’ve been surprisingly pleased by the yarn, I wasn’t expecting much but it just knits wonderfully. Easily the softest yarn I’ve worked with so far, and it has a certain sheen to it that makes it look simply luxurious. The yarn and the pattern together really stands out.
