Notes

I’ve chosen my colours so they would form a wheel, and I see no reason why I shouldn’t use that to my advantage. Also, I aim to finish with a colour explosion.

So here’s what I did:

German twisted cast on

Clue 1 as written
Clue 2: C12, c11, c9, c5, c6
Clue 3: C1, c3, c8/5/8 (knit rows 6/7/8 in colour 5), c2
Clue 4: C10, c7, c6
Clue 5: C1, c4, c11
Clue 6: C 12, c7

Using Russian joins

Icelandic BO

Not blocked, just laid out and patted gently to dry.

45 cm deep and 230 cm wingspan

Shawl number 6 in 2019

Resurrecting this and reknitting using my own colour scheme starting with clue 2.

Clue 4 and I’m out. Neither the pattern, a stitch sampler more than a harmonious design imho, nor the tone appeal to me.

On the note re perfectionism included in clue 4 (THANK YOU), I’ll do just that: frog.

I just won’t reknit.

Dommage….


I haven’t decided yet. It was fun to put together colours, though. So maybe yes ;-)
