Second attempt at elegant shawl for Mom.  I intended it to be closed with a shiny brooch, whish is so IN now, but my Mom says it's too heavy and weighs it all down.  So I have to lengthen the ties.  It was Cervinia Softer mohair from Smiley's Yarns yearly Yarn Riot.  Unlike my pink one (also on Crafster), this one was made again attempting the sheared look, but all in one piece from top down.

CO enough for your personal circumference (multiply your gauge per inch by the your circumference)

First 6 rows: [k1, p1] repeat (ribbing)

Next 18 rows (depending on how wide you want the bar to be; decide for yourself): stockinette stitches

Next 6 rows: reverse stockinette stiches

Repeat blocks, and end with another 6-row block of ribbing.

Then go the edge and do the same on both sides to make the tyeing area: pick up stiches with a smaller needle, and knit across.  Next row, k2tog all across. That should be sufficient decrease, but decrease more by k2togethering until you are satisfied.

that is a lovely shawl, why don't you knit a flower and put a pin behind it, this way it won't be heavy at all to use on the shawl... just an idea!
