Finished Project: Textured Shawl

Textured Shawl
Size made: 31" x 32.5"
Craft: Knit
Shawl #8 for 11 shawls in 2011

Needle used: US 10 (6.0 mm), US 10.5 (6.5 mm)
Color: Denim Blue
Total Yardage Used: 382.5 yards
Bought yarn from: Knit 1 Bead 2 in Jerome, AZ

Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: July 30th to August 4th, 2011
Modifications: Here is the order of rows that I did: 18 st st, 16 textured, 16 st st, 16 textured,16 st st, 6 textured, 26 garter stitch then I BO with the 10.5 needles.
Make this pattern again?Yes but I would definitely want to do this in a snuggly yarn. I would probably also prefer to make a rectangular shawl in this sort of textured patterns.  Oh, and the textured pattern was fun to knit. =]

Final Thoughts/Recommendations: Definitely worth a try but the "pattern" (it's more a few notes to get your creative juices flowing) is not specific in how to start. I'd look around at different peoples project pages to see how they started it.  I marked people as helpful if they had information like that so you could start at my page and look at who helped me out.

Beautiful Shawl. I love the way you give your feedback on the pattern. Those are the tips that really help when picking and completing a project. Hope you have a lovely Christmas :)

Thank you! I found awhile ago that someone elses feedback had really helped me so I started giving more information on my experience. I'm glad they help! =]

Hi LeeAnn! Your shawl is beautiful! I am using some Mary Gavan Cuesta I bought at Sedona Knitwits to make mine. Petra is very nice and mails to me in NJ. I will check out the shop in Jerome when we visit again. MarleneS2
