This shawl is knitted from a pattern found in the book Cozy Stash-Busting Knits, by Jen Lucas. I love that Ms. Lucas includes both charts and written instructions for all the patterns in this book. I prefer to work from written instructions, so appreciate the choice this book offers.
I did make some changes from the pattern, in that I made the shawl much larger and used a different yarn. I like wrapping myself in shawls, so I wanted a larger shawl. Of course, that meant using a lot more yarn than called for. The yarn I used is Dream, Cossette, color Crying Dove. This yarn comes in skeins of 270 yds. and is 70 % merino wool, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon.
I think the shawl turned out gorgeous.
