First Shawl Finished!

While I was down in Kalamazoo I was able to finish up my first shawl! The pattern calls it a scarf, but it has the shaping of a short shawl. It is so soft and so versatile.

Tied as a traditional scarf.

The pattern was pretty easy. The edging is crocheted and it took me some time to figure out exactly what stitches to pick up. The yarn is fabulous! I will definitely use it again . . . maybe even for another one of these. But, first, I will be doing a project on large size needles :)

This was made using the "Typha Scarf" pattern in the Fall 2010 issue of Knitscene.

I used Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine yarn.
