SUCH beautiful colours!
Next the one side is flipped up over the opposite shoulder, and is probably the way I'll wear it most often.
I made a circle of double crochet w/ chain stitches and plan to use it with the shawl in a couple of different ways:
I do have one wooden shawl pin in my drawer, and - while it will work so-so -I plan on finding a perfect one on Etsy in the next couple of weeks. :-)
I remembered to photograph the shawl before I steam blocked it, and again after ...
You can see how the stitches really opened up with the blocking and I gained some additional width as well.
The finished size (after blocking) is about 88" long x 25" wide. I did a row of single crochet on both the cast-on and cast-off edges. This is going to be a perfect summer shawl, and depending on what dress I get for our nephew's Arizona wedding, this might be what I wear over it!
Thanks for stopping by.
