41  CROCHET / Crochetalongs / Re: Butterfly Shawl from knit 1. on: June 02, 2006 06:23:15 PM
Finally finished swatch

I am very pleased with it. To compare, I also started a sample using some size 10 bedspread weight, but I didn't finish it. I'm satisfied with the Cotton Fleece, although I really liked the sheen of the mercerized cotton. My gauge is good, so I don't think the substitution of yarns is going to be a problem. I'm not excited that I have to order yarn, because I'm anxious to get started!

The info I had suggested that the elusive Lion Crochet Cotton was almost as heavy as fingering (sock) yarn, which would make 4 strands held together about a worsted weight. So I got the idea to use Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece for the butterflies and Cotton Fine for the mesh. I had some various bits of both around the place so that is what I'm working my swatch with. I need to get my swatch finished, though, so I can pull it apart and measure it to know how much of each to buy. Since this method was such a departure from how the sample was made, I couldn't think of any other way to know for sure.

I'm still having trouble figuring how to wrap the thread around the butterfly neck (that sounds kind of mean, doesn't it?) so that it looks halfway decent. Got any tips?

Thanks for asking me to join the crochetalong and thanks for being so helpful with my questions. As soon as I get a decent square from the yarn I've decided to use, I'll have to order some in the right color (I want to do white) so I don't know when I'll be able to really get started. I love this shawl: it is so beautiful. As soon as I opened the magazine I saw it and I WANTED it  ;)What luck to find this crochetalong.

Thanks again!
