Gradient Shawl Complete
I finished my sixth citron shawl over the weekend and have worn this shawl twice. I might sound weird but this shawl is so "wearable" to me. I love how light if feels around my neck and of course the way it looks.
The original pattern gives instructions for five wedge sections but I go usually to seven or eight wedges based on how much yarn I have. I loved knitting with the gecko yarn and knew I would add some more yarn to make this shawl bigger.
When I blocked the shawl, I only pinned the top of the shawl stretching out the wing span. I gently fingered out the body of the shawl without pinning so the gathering sections could be maintained.

Simply gorgeous! I love the purple gradient and how you made it larger. Wear it in warmth and coziness!ReplyDelete
I have had this on my mind for a long time, and even bought yarn to make it. Maybe it's time ...
