Palm Springs Shawl

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Palm Springs Shawl Link to website or photo www.paulapatterns.com What are you most proud of? The ribbons gather the shawl into two sections that hang effortlessly on the arms, so it stays in place without fussing. The fluidity and drape from using the pure silk yarn are beautiful. The shawl is wonderfully soft and has a subtle sheen that gives depth to the color. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the markers between the border and the main section of the shawl. I did not use them, and had to frog a couple of times when I forgot to change from knit to purl. I also recommend blocking, particularly if the ribbons are going to be used.

Q&A with Sideways Dragon

shazdove asked:
The shawl is lovely and using pure silk makes is wonderfully luxurious
Sideways Dragon answered:
Thanks for your kind words! I really like the way it came out. The silk gives it a luxurious feel and it drapes beautifully. I haven't even bothered to photograph it without the ribbons, its just not as interesting. Thanks!
