Mapes, a simple crescent shawl

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Mapes Link to website or photo www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mapes What are you most proud of? My Mother (the lady in the picture) doesn't wear shawls but agreed to be my model. After seeing the pictures she said "I didn't know it looked that good. I might actually start wearing shawls - if they look like that one." She was particularly taken with the shot of her wearing Mapes "Bandit" style (with a struggling 5 yr old on her lap). If I can convert her to shawls - then that would be quite an accomplishment in my mind. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Chose a yarn you love - because this shawl is about the yarn more than anything else.
