Hello!  I made this sawl for my mom's 50th birthday.  I hope you like it as much as I do!

There's it on the slightly dirty floor


There's me showing it off....


A nice closeup of the stitch pattern.

In real life, it just glows in the light.  The mohair makes it incredibly ethereal, and it's very warm.  I want to make one for me, now!

Thanks for looking!

The pattern is by Plymouth Yarns.  It's called something like "Monarch Shawl" and also "Swallowtail Shawl".  The shawls are done exactly the same, except they call for different colors and CCs.  Also, they did theirs in outback wool and I did mine in katia Ingenua, to make it more fluffy.  Fluffy butterflies!

This is so pretty...I love the split bottom.  She'll wear this all winter and be reminded of spring and summer.

I have to say that it looks awesome. It's the first shawl I've seen so far that I've liked, since shawls have always reeked of old-lady to me... but this is a really interesting and awesome twist!

I was thinking this one:

might be it but I can see now that it's not.
Similar though.  I think yours is nicer.

Oh yeah! I saw that one when I was trying to find the pattern online to link to.  That's really pretty, but I don't know if the pattern would read as well once it was on.  It would be pretty to make, though.

Oh WOW!  That one seems to be the basic pattern I did, but with different yarns.  That one is way way beautiful.  The pattern I had had one shawl done in "fire" colors, for lack of a better description, and one does in blues, with different crystal palace yarns (deco and glitz) inbetween the repeats.  But that one...wow!  I'm tempted to make that the next go-round!  Thanks for finding that!
