What are you most proud of? Follwing the instruction and this easy basic pattern I got exiting and surprising result, This hippie look isn't my style. I'm considering giving it away as a birthday giftt.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just go for it,. Find some nice thin yarn, make a few swatches with various size needles until you get the gauge and follow Kristin's instructions. The revelation comes when blocking. This is a great course and Kristin designed a basic shawl patternwith simple details, which can be used and varied in different future shawls and various yarns. But the kid mohair for Jasmine Shawl is the prettiest, so I asked Santa to bring some for Christmas.

Thanks everbody, It's this lovely selfstriping rustic yarn that does it. I statched lots of it, when it was on sale again last March.

I love the colors in this! I popped by to look because right now this is the only project showing on the class page with no ruffles and I thought it was a different shawl, and I'm not keen on the ruffles either I'm surprised Andersen to see the ruffles can just be discarded, you've inspired me take the class after all, thanks.

I like to "test knit" a shawl in plain fingering/sock yarn before getting involved in a lace weight project. Adding the two other tiers simply didn't work with this rustic type of yarn. On the other hand, they worked on the grey lace weight mohair shawl. So you see; the same pattern with different yarns = different shawls and you can add frills, jasmines, eyelets, omit them totally and customize your own original shawl.

Darned spell check....that is supposed to say "surprised and pleased", I have no idea how the spell check got Andersen out of that!

Ha ha, your spell check must have known that I'm Danish

Gorgeous! I'm not a huge shawl person, but you accomplished this with great ease. Well done!

I love how this is more of a Hippy style, which is something I'd be more inclined to wear. I'm enrolled in this class, just have to find the right yarn :)

It's fingering, long selfstriping/varigated and spun unevenly - if that helpful
