Pebble Beach Shawl Complete



I never tire of the excitement when I finish a shawl.  The casting off is a reward that most knitter's get excited about.  There is the fun of casting on, then the steady momentum of the middle part, you know picking up a project and just toodling along.

Then there is the cast off, soaking and blocking.  The dessert of a fabulous meal.


This is my second Pebble Beach Shawl and I repeated the edge lace a bit more than was written in the directions.  I find that the crescent shaped shawl to be THE shawl that wears nicely around the neck.  Also the narrow depth distributes the weight of the shawl better.

I think I have a delicate neck and I don't like weight around it...


Ravelry notes are here!

  1. That's a lovely shawl! I get the idea of not too much weight around the neck, I tend to go without shawls, scarfs and even cowls because of that. But this one looks lightweight and still warm. Love the color too!

  3. Absolutely beautiful! I will have to look at this pattern for myself as I really like the idea of a not-too-deep crescent shaped shawl. I love that gorgeous green!

  23. The shawl is so very pretty. Your photography is lovely. The close ups make me want to knit this shawl. Although I've seen and heard about the pattern, I've never paid close attention to stitch pattern in the body of the shawl. Must be the way I flip through the Ravelry patterns sometimes - too fast. Good lesson in slowing down and savoring the stitches.
