For Mother's Day, I knit my mother a shawl/wrap/scarf/thing. It's knit end-to-end, instead of sideways, out of cheap-but-super-soft Red Heart Symphony in River Blue. Through the drop-stitch stripes, I wove a variegated ribbon yarn, ONline Linie 15 Orlando in Lost Lagoon. (Not only does that add visual interest, it also gives some stability to the long and very stretchy wrap.)



The fringe is so light-weight that it floats in the air as you move.

gorgeous!  I love the idea of weaving the ribbon in, it gives a bright flair to the yarn you used.

I agreee that a full picture would be awesome!

Alrighty then, I took a couple of images of the whole thing for you all:





I couldn't get a decent picture of myself wearing it, so I used the dressform --- but it's hard to make the shawl-thing drape right (either as a wrap or as a scarf) on a form with no arms and no neck!

Wow!  I love it and am going to make one (if you don't mind).  Do you remember how many sts you cast on?  It looks like you knit about 5 rows stockinette and then a row of dropped yarn overs.

Thanks for posting!

Oh, I see I am about a year late for this link.  I thought I was in my unread posts, not finished knitting projects.  I am still very new to this site.

I liked it from the close-ups, but I like it even more when I get to see the whole thing!  I want to make it for myself!  Could you post your pattern?

Wow, I really like this shawl/wrap/scarf/thing.  Very creative idea with the ribbon yarn - it really works.  *Please* post a pattern if you can.   Smiley
