Another Shawl finished...



I started knitting this while I was away at a retreat in the Desert, (Palm Springs, California area). I didn't want to follow too many instructions so I decided just to make up the pattern. At first I wanted just to knit, I do love the process, but then just garter stitch seemed too boring.

Start with 3 stitches and increase one at the beginning of each row, then when I got to about 8 inches it looked like it needed a little something so I started to knit the stitch below on every other stitch leaving the border in garter stitch. When I completed the shawl it looked too boring so I added my "stash buster" crochet "frufru" edging to it.

The yarn I used for the shawl is by Creative Yarns, Hearty Worsted New Zealand Wool. The FruFru got whatever I grabbed of some of my leftover stash.

Hi Ana,

I just found your blog and love the things you have made! I used to live in Venice when I went to UCLA - ages ago....

Love that shawl! Very, very nice Ana. I love Freeform used as accents to a larger project. Great job. I'm sure you'll get tons of compliments on it. Chelle

Ana,

You are so creative! I love the frou frou added to the shawl. That is really what makes it!
