Hollyberry Dunes Shawl


I finished this rectangular shawl a few months ago, but I never got around to blocking it until this past week.  This is my second shawl to knit, so I think that means I need to start wearing shawls.  But it will have to wait for cooler weather and not the 100 degree temperatures we've been having.  :)

The Pattern:  Dunes 
Yarn:  Andean Silk by Knit Picks, worsted weight, color "Hollyberry"
Size:  72" x 26" 

My shawl came out much larger than the pattern model, but that's because I used a worsted weight yarn instead of the called-for fingering weight.  I wanted something with more bulk, more warmth than a lightweight shawl, and mine is just like I envisioned.  Happy, happy, happy.

  1. As always, a beautiful job. Love this color too!

  2. Wow, i really love it. The colour is beautiful and the pattern looks so pretty.

  3. Really beautiful. Since I started knitting, I started wearing shawls and scarves a lot - I like to wear my everyday jeans and t-shirt with a nice bright shawl and then I feel a bit more dressed up.

  4. This is beautiful!, Great color and design, of course, great knitting!
