For those of you who read my thread on the frustrating "class" for this shawl, here's the finished project. I do love the results. LOVE this yarn. It's Kudo (http://www.plymouthyarn.com/index.php?nav=cYarn.yarnDetail&yarnid=001034&searchcollection=000005) and I used about 2.5 skeins - bought 4 so have some leftover for a scarf. :) The pattern is easy - did a couple of things I've never done before, like dividing the stitches to make the "pocket" for the second "bow." It's done in short rows. Not sure I like the holes that makes so if I make another one will research way to avoid that. This weight is perfect for taking into air conditioned places this summer.

Very nice indeed! For picking up short row wraps without holes, look at the knitty article (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/FEATbonnetric.html), and there's a video on the Tips page.

I'd be interested in trying that pattern and would love to find it. Can you help me out with the pattern name and number?

Hi Jannette, I would love to be able to share the pattern but it is designed by one of the ladies at my local yarn shop and we had to take the class to get the pattern. I wish she would've just sold the pattern and by-passed the class. Here is the information on the store if you'd like to contact them to see if she would be interested in selling it - KnitWits (http://www.knitwitsyarn.com/page3.php) - the name of the pattern is Dot's Shawl.

Thanks for all the compliments from everyone else!! I sure am going to enjoy wearing this one!

Your shawl turned out lovely and the yarn seems to be the perfect choice for it. In this case, the end justified the means. Enjoy it.
