For many years I knitted traditional shapes like sweaters,skirts, dresses and coats.(At least, it was traditional for me [:)])

I started to see knitting on the internet 18-20 month ago, and I found many new beautiful shapes of knitting, what I never tried to make before(for example,designs for off the shoulder cloth like poncho,stoles, shawls,caplets and others...)

Now I'm learning to knit new shapes.This is my first tries to knit traingle shawl:

Very begginig:

My hands a kind of clumsy with tiny stitches and thin yarn, after I made shrug with very thick and large stitches, but... a little bit of practice- and will be OK!
----------------------------------------------------

IT'S READY!!!!!!!!:cheering:


i almost exactly followed instruction with SWALLOWTAIL SHAWL from ''Knits''( fall 2006) with a small modify:

http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa46/lalapoo43/origright.jpg

it said:''repeate chart 14 times'' and I did repeate 17 times..(20 rows more). So... i made a big shawl. Even biger then I planed, but I'm happy with this size.

It must be ''23 from bottom centre point to top edge and 49'' wide across top edge,after blocking''.

My shawl size is 57' after blocking. Huge!!!

Your shawl is very pretty indeed. Can you tell me what weight yarn you used? It appears to be fingering or DK. I'm I correct?

Very pretty but looks complicated. I've recently knitted a triangular shawl for a friend at church, but it was a very simple shawl with a knitted lace edging that turned out pretty--but nothing to compare to your shawl.
