Semi-Precious Shawl »
InstructionsThe repeats of Chart B are what increase the size of the shawl. I did 3 repeats with DK yarn, and still only used about 350 yds. If I were to do it again, I'd do 4 or more repeats to use all 550 yards in my stash.

What was your inspiration?
My goal is to knit 12 Shawls in 2012, this is number one!
What are you most proud of?
The strategic placement of the lighter skein to create a kind of stripe right before the pattern change.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Put in lifelines with your chart B repeats to avoid having to pick up stitches if you have to rip back (due to insufficient yarn).
