Pantina Shawl Complete


I finished this shawl over the past weekend and my daughter graciously modeled for a photo.  As you know, I love knitting with Madelinetosh yarn so it is no surprise that the shawl is oh so soft :)


The pattern was easy and interesting.  I think I prefer more lace in a shawl but this one was just fine.  I altered the edging increasing from knit front and back on every stitch to every other stitch.  I was afraid of running out of yarn so I had to conserve somewhere.


It's going to be 70 degrees today and that is not shawl wearing weather, is it?

  4. It is just stunning Karen! If your area is at all like mine you could find a shady area to sit in and wear the shawl, it's always cooler in the shade.

  10. OMG! I made that shawl! But yours is way prettier. Mine turned out a hair too short and I chose yarn that was a hair too thick.
    yours looks perfect!

  15. What a wonderful colourway! I don't think I've seen that Madelinetosh shade before. Goodness, another Madelinetosh fan. I swear the last skeins I've just knitted up were even softer than any others I've bought before. What I really appreciate is the durability. When knitting for small children you want their stuff to last despite the wear and tear. Madelinetosh is wonderful.

    A beautiful shawl.

  18. I love, love the color of your shawl. I may have to try one after my stash busting days are over. There isn't nice enough yarn in my stash for something that beautiful!
