Yes, it’s huge! Wingspan is about 102″ and depth from neck to point is 47″. I should probably have stuck to the pattern’s recommendation to use five colours, as I followed the plan to do one row of each, two rows of each, etc, and ended up with a larger shawl. I also had to fudge the first and last border rows ever so slightly.
I’m wearing my favourite skirt today, the one my mother in law bought for me a few years ago in the island of Jersey.
Here’s a closer look at the edges…
Even though I made three pairs of slippers while this was on the go, it took less than two weeks from start to finish. Specs: Stylecraft Special Aran in teal, magenta, lavender, plum, aster and aspen. Total yarn used 8.1 skeins (810 grams) or 1585 metres. 5.5mm hook.
The shawl is lovely and will keep you warm on those chilly days and nights. Wonderful colours.
Thank you Linda.
I love this; – the colours truly are dreamy! Makes me think of a pinkish sunset over a sea~
Thanks Ms Goddess!
Love the colours
