Sunlight Shawlette Done!

I had no idea how much I would love this piece! But I do. It’s soft and drapey and light but I think it will still be warm. I love how the color block/stripe worked out. I even love the picot bind off, which is not usually my thing. I am so excited to give this to T on Thursday. I hope she loves it too!

The rundown

Pattern: Sunlight Shawl for Sad People (free)

Yarn: GGH Tajmahal that my former SIL gave me a loooong time ago. It’s 70% wool, 22% silk and 8% cashmere. I tried to use up as much as I had on this project. It took 572 yards all told.

Size made: One–knitted until I ran out of yarn. The finished measurements are something like 29″ deep by 72″ long.

Needles: US5

Techniques used: Russian join, picot bind off.

Modifications: None

Ravelled: Here

    It looks fabulous. I like how it’s in neutral colours and can be dressed up or down. The little one is the cherry on top.
