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!
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!
