The actual final finished object of the Pink Phoenix pattern gave me some gas. There was a dog involved and a lot of sickness, and too much walking and not enough time to re-knit what was undone. But it’s finished. And I’m really, really happy with it!
The interesting thing about this shawlette is that when it comes off the needles, it looks like 3/4 of a square. But when you block it like so….
You get a lovely shape that looks like this:
It drapes perfectly around your shoulders and isn’t too deep. Plus a bonus for those of us with junk in the trunk – it doesn’t have a big ole arrow pointing to your bum!
If you wanted to make this bigger you could easily add more repeats of the 28-row lace body pattern. Just make sure you have enough yarn to do the 10-rows of edging afterwards.
Needles: Size 6 needles (4 mm)
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock in the Light of Love colorway, 440 yards to 100g (I only used about 2/3 of the skein)
