Dear all,

I got a hank of knit picks shimmer, 440 yards of it.

I'm girding my loins for lace-knitting and i think 440 yards will make a decent triangular shawl (smallish, but enough to wade into the lace knitting without being too overwhelmed). Can anyone direct me to an online pattern using this amount of yarn? I don't want to do a lace scarf, the triangular shape is much more appealing.

Another thing, is anyone willing to trade with me? I would love to attempt the Swallowtail shawl by Evelyn Clark but I can't get the Interweave Knits in the UK. I'm willing to trade with Rowan Yarn (like a new ball of KSH) of comparative value comparable to the cost of the magazine and shipping.

Thanks for reading.

How about Heirloom Knitting's Daisies Shawl?  The pattern says it can be adapted to be made smaller, if you end up w/o enough yarn...

i posted a free pattern for a double triangle shawl, (knit from top down, so you can make it as long as you like) on my blog..

see it here:

you can make it more open (on larger needles) and it will be lacier, or smaller (and warmer) by making it on smaller needles.
