I started this laceweight version of my Bestellen Shawl pattern not long after I finished the original fingering weight version, but it was pushed to the wayside (aka the bottom of a works-in-progress basket) for awhile there. I picked it back up last week and finished it off to give as a birthday gift!

Bestellen Shawl

The yarn is madelinetosh prairie, which is a wool laceweight single. The colour is super hard to capture! I think it was Forestry? Just right for a birthday gift on St. Patrick’s Day!

I didn’t make any modifications to the pattern other than knitting it on 3.5mm needles and extending the bottom ribbing by a few rows to use up more yarn. It’s a good size, and the recipient put it on right away ;)

Perfectly lightweight for spring! The Bestellen Shawl pattern is available on Ravelry here.

Reading: The Jenna Fox Chronicles. I actually really loved all three books!

    ThiS is gorgeous! Truly perfect in color , design, and craftsmanship. St. P’s Day, though, does not observe his birthday, but the day of his death.

    The shawl IS beautiful and the pictures do not do justice to the fabulous colour . I absolutely LOVE it and have worn it every day since.
    Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!!!! xoxoxoxoxo
