My first Shawl
1 Attachment(s)
This is a shawl I just finished for my Mother for Christmas.
I went to the local yarn shop and saw one on display made with a very nice, but expensive yarn.
I chose to use a blended yarn called Broadway, and used a Bernat Matrix ribbon type yarn that I added for the fringe. I am very pleased with how it turned out! It was very quick!!!

Use 17 circlulars

Cast on 17 stitches and then knit as you would on regular needles.
Increase on first stitch on each row until you get to 94 stitches. Then knit last row with no increase and bind off. Add fringe and you are done!

The photo doesn't do it was a cloudy day today~!

That is gorgeous! You're right, I've seen Broadway (the yarn, not the area in New York City ;) ) and the photo doesn't do it justice!

Very pretty! :)

Broadway, eh? I have three balls of that that I didn't know what to do with. Now maybe I do! Thanks for the pattern, too! :)

Great job! The colors are lovely. I like how they blend more than stripe.

That's really lovely. Yeah, the colours are so nice, it will go with everything. I need a big needle project soon, have to keep this in mind. btw, I live on Broadway, look down on Broadway every day, ha. But I don't know the yarn!

Is that by Lily Chin?

Broadway yarn for the shawl I made
Here is a link to the Broadway yarn I used in my shawl. The price here is much more then what I paid! But it gives you a better look at the colors and fibers blends it is made of.

Thanks! I took a look at it. Yeah it is expensive sort of but it's very pretty.
Don't you love it when you see a price you didn't have to pay.
