A small lace project for those crisp fall days....
If you haven't knit a shawl and you want to give it a go, this is a wonderful pattern to experiment with. The lace knitting is easy to moderate, and the size of the shawl keeps the knitting time to a minimum. I wanted to knit up something out of my new Sunsilk yarn, and was reminded of this gorgeous project on Ravelry.. go "Ravelry! The best part is, it only took one skein!
Pattern: Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn Clark; Interweave Knits Fall 2006
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns Sunsilk in Mushroom
Needles: Addi 24" US4 (3.5mm)
Measurements: 45" across top edge, 23" down center
Started: September 27, 2007
Finished: October 3, 2007
Other Details: The different lace patterns keep this project moving! The lace bobbles are really beautiful, though not the easiest thing to make when you have to purl 5 together. I would invest in a set of Addi Lace needles for this project just for the sharp tips.
