The pattern is from the second Good Night, Day booklet. I used Aslan Trends Lecco thick and thin cotton and size 13 needles.
No modifications except for the yarn and corresponding needle size change. I worked about 19 repeats of the lace pattern before binding off.
The pattern is written for a heftier, thick and thin yarn but when my Lecco arrived and I saw it was almost all “thin” with very little “thick” I decided to just go with it and have a lighter weight shawl that is more practical for living in the South.
I love the way it looks. I’m not so sure about this yarn, though. It’s very fuzzy, as in, it looks like I ironed my shirt with my cat fuzzy. Regardless, I completely enjoyed making this yesterday afternoon.
Hmmm, I think I have a yarn very similar to yours in my stash and have not been able to figure out what to do with it. I think now I do! Looks great on you … rainy & all!
that yarn looks amazingly soft and cozy.
Thanks, Evelyn and it's a perfect pattern for using some odd skeins! I had one and a quarter skein left after I made mine, so I made a slightly smaller one for my daughter. It worked great because she'd only wear it as a low key scarf anyway.
It is Britt, but its very fuzzy. The thick portions are like freshly picked cotton and so leave a little fiber on my clothes. Or maybe it was the rain. I'd like to make another in wool or a cotton blend.
Thank you, Vanessa! I think it will work well in my climate and I though it has I different feel than the pattern sample in very bulky wool, I still like it. I'm interested to see what you'll be doing after you powered thru all of those WIP sweaters over the summer.
amazing job! i love the wool.
