At last, the Boho Sunset Shawl is finished and the pattern is ready on Ravelry! It took me so long because of life ups and downs, injuries, school, and a cottage renovation. Add a grand-puppy that I suddenly have to puppy-sit with my own good boy Shaq, and you have some very slow knitting. That's me. Not you, necessarily. This is a very easy shawl for the average bear. It's all Garter Stitch with an easy Lace Stitch which grows in rows. The tricky part is being very, very careful not to drop a stitch during lace sections (or any other), as the lace will unravel back to where you started it. So don't put you knitting down in the middle of a lace row unless you absolutely have to and even then, be mindful how and where you left it. I say this from experience. Otherwise, this is my new favourite pattern and a joy to knit with great results!
Here's the stats:
Asymmetrical: 60 ins [152.5 cm] W x 37” [94 cm] x H x 70” [203.5 cm] slope.
2 skeins Handmaiden Casbah 3-ply (80% Merino/10% Nylon/10% Cashmere.
Note:Colours are one of a kind. I used a custom dye made for Linda’s Craftique in Port Credit, Mississauga, Ontario, Canada (my home town). Linda inspired Handmaiden to dye Casbah with a photo of a Port Credit sunset as inspiration. Linda showed me the photo and the yarn and I was smitten. I had to design something. This asymmetrical shawl uses the Port Credit dye as (MC) with a matching purple (A) to finish it off plus the fringe. I look forward to seeing your own colour creations!
