Notes

I’m writing books and therefore have no time for swatching. SHAWLS IT IS!!

Overall, very happy with this knit. Both yarns were wonderful to work with. The Sundara was especially squishy and nice but did leave my hands a little orange. The dye run-off rinsed out after two soakings.

The pattern was easy to memorize and modify for my yarn. I didn’t have enough to do 12 stripes of the orange, but it was easy to just stop and move straight to the last swath of purple.

I will definitely consider making a second one!
