Had such fun making this shawl, and it went so quick! I only started it Wednesday night, and finished it yesterday. I already bought more yarn in other colors to make a couple more, lol.




This is the edge, the last row is done in crochet. Very simple but dressed it up a little more.

Wow! What a beautiful color combination! I think the little last row of crochet adds a nice finish! Lovely work!

I recognize this pattern, or one very similar.  I made a black one and it is incredibly simple, but still very elegant.  It took me a little longer than yours, but it was my very first "big" knit. item

The colors are Wonderfully blended.

I recognize that pattern--it's Lion Brand's Easy Triangle Shawl, right? It's a great pattern. It looks especially good with the "painterly" Homespun, which is what I'm guessing you've used here, although I can't guess the color. I've made it multiple times myself (never in the recommended yarn), and I fully intend to make it again.

That looks similar to the pattern I did. It was named something else, but I notice they did that with this pattern, put it up several times, different colors, different yarn, different name but same pattern.

I did use Homespun, but I can't remember the name of the color.. Herb Garden, maybe?
