Okay, recently i discovered i'm not only addicted to very colorful knitting - i'm also addicted to knitting shawls. This particular one was on my list for a long time.

The pattern is from vogue knitting ~ the yarn is noro kureyon in three different colorways.
Since the five main sections all are knitted individually and joined in the final step it makes a perfect project to carry along!

Here is a closeup of one of the cable and joinings sections:


... and another one of the bobbled edging:


*** thank you for the lovely comments, gals!!! ***

Happy knitting everyone!

That's beautiful! I love the colorways that you used. Usually, I'm not a huge fan of bobbles, but they are just adorable on this shawl. I have to Wist it.  Grin

this is sooooo beautiful! I love to knit and making shawls is one of my favorite things, Ive never knitted with Noro before since its not available at any of my local craft stores but the color ways is very pretty, the shape is very cool too, do you know what issue the pattern is from? i would like to give it a try but without the cables since I can knit cables for the life of me. I voted this rocks cos it does!

Thank you! ~ *sending lots of crafty love back out to you all*  Smiley

MizzKodak, the pattern is from one of the little vogue knitting book(let)s... SHAWLS on the go! (pm me, if you can't find it on amazon or elsewhere!)
~ i think it should be possible to modify the pattern so as there is no cable in the center of the panels ~ increases are made by yarn overs to the left and right of the center stitches. all you needed there would be a rather sturdy alternative for the center stitches!

Wow! I couldn't really picture how this thing works from the first picture, but the action pics are awesome! Please make some in daylight for us, so we can drool over this shawl some more! Would you say it's comfortable around the neck like this?

That's really cool.  You know what else you could use that pattern for?  The beginnings of an awesome Chirstmas tree skirt!

Hmm ... I think I'm in luck. There are some of those Vogue On The Go booklets in my local public library. (I've never noticed a shawl booklet though - not that I would, because I do not particularly like shawls.)

But this is beautiful! And you are wearing it like it is comfortable.
Great work!
Hint: this is the place you take credit for your individualized interpretation of the Vogue pattern that resulted in its comfort and beauty.
(Does not matter whether you just followed all of the directions to the letter.)

Thank you all, you are the sweetest! ~ i am well and happy happy happy my new fo made it to the march featured knits list  Smiley

~ btw, i *love* the idea of a knitted x-mas tree skirt!

... and i promise i'll try and get a better (daylight) action shot for you soon.

The shawl is very comfy! lucky me... i actually like to wear wool  Cheesy

in the meantime a brief spree into color theory:

... the "value" of the colors used... although i assembled the panels without this actual knowledge, i plan on making use a lot more of color theory in my knitting soon!

And *in the good spirit of wordwide craftiness* i'll always be happy to share the actual origin of my projects + useful info that i found out about myself Wink

that is a stunning shawl...and I like to make scarves..so this wouldn't be too much of a jump.  =]  And I could put kureyon on the list of yarns to get from stitches Midwest... Grin

Oh my.  I'm making a sweater in Noro and I just love the colors too.  Yours came out stunning and I hope I have the same success.

Great job!  I look forward to seeing your next Noro project Smiley
