Purple Passion Shawl Complete


This is one shawl that I am going to have a hard time giving away.  But it is for my favorite aunt who I know will love it and wear it.  This purple is such a saturated color I cannot help but be cheerful when I look at it.  The ravelry page is here.  (my arms look kind of big because I took the photo......)


I felt extremely confident that I had tons of yarn so I did two repeats of chart A instead of one.  I wanted this to be as big as possible.  Then I started chart B and realized that there was a very good chance that I would not have enough yarn.


So I eliminated four rows in the middle of chart B.  When I was closer to the bind off I decided to omit the last two rows of chart B and did the stretchy bind off that I just love to do on all of my lace shawls.  So because of my modifications the edging is not as scallopy as it is in the magazine photo.  Maybe if I knit this up again, I will have an extra 100 yards to be able to complete chart B as intended.

  1. That's so beautiful and you've finished it so quickly! I think I'm going to have a hard time giving away my current scarf too - but only because I'm not 100% sure my Mum will use it... hmmm.
