Colour Affection Shawl (Veera Valimaki)

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Link to website or photo What are you most proud of? First time I've knit with lace weight yarn - took forever - nearly six months - largely because there were so many stitches on the needle (almost 600) that boredom simply took over. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The yarn called for a 2.5 mm needle, I switched to a 3.5 mm and I should have used at least a 4.5 mm circular (80 cm) needle to get the loose effect the shawl calls for - that would also have reduced the number of stitches on those rows at the bottom.

What you will need

  • I used Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace yarn
  • size 3.5 mm (80 cm) circular needle. The pattern by Veera Valimaki I downloaded from Ravelry: I'd seen the shawl in a wool shop in Portland Oregon and thought I'd like to make it. I bought the yarn at home.
  • US 4 / 3.5 mm
