I went from this,
during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
I am very happy with it.
I designed this shawl to let my one precious skein of handspun really sing in an unfussy setting. I wrote up the pattern here. The darker yarn is Cascade 220 Heathers in charcoal gray.
I’m glad I went with the shallower shape, since that makes it wide enough to wrap generously around the shoulders. Even broad shoulders like mine.
The edge is just a couple rows of garter stitch, so it has to be blocked pretty severely to lay flat.
As a result, it’s a bit lighter than you’d think for something made from worsted weight yarn.
