Another Finished Object (FO)! I’ve been waiting awhile to post this so I could link out to the pattern. It’s now up on Ravelry and I am so pleased to show this off! The pattern is Septima’s Asymmetrical Shawlette from Linda Browning, aka tinyknit on Ravelry. She has a lot of awesome patterns for sale and at a pretty low cost.
This pattern was super easy, as long as you use stitch markers on all the odd rows and remove them on the even rows. Otherwise, they will not be in the correct place with the extra increases. It helped me tremendously with the counting! This was the fastest shawl I’ve completed, starting on 7/10/15 and finishing on 7/20/15. That may seem like a long time to more experienced knitters; however I also work a very demanding full time job 🙂
The final size was 57″ x 17.5″. I used US 7 – 4.5 mm 40″ circular needles, knitting flat. If you did not read my initial WIP post, the yarn I used was Hand Dyed Sport Yarn, Hand Dyed Yarn, Superwash Merino – Northern Lights on Serenity. It was super soft and squishy and it was a dream to work with.
I love learning something new with every project and with this one I learned the provisional cast-on and how to pick up and knit stitches. There are several youtube videos out there that can help you if you’ve never done either of these methods. Here are the ones I found most helpful:
My beautiful friend, Gina, modeled the pictures for me. So, without further ado, the final pictures!
