Could that yellow swatch be the Coral 2 using lace weight or fingering weight, and then blocked out fully???

The original swatch (old looking) was all scrunched up like it needed blocking.

Coral 2 Knitting Stitch
You're right! They actually knitted a new one, and blocked it! I'll have to say that I like it with the middle of the stitch puffed out, looks more like coral that way.
Hopefully not too long before I figure out the next stitch pattern and how to transition into it. First block is done, Coral 2 is a beauty

I must agree....I like the poofy version, too! But it's nice to know how it will look when blocked!

I knit the Japanese Feather stole and a scarf last year, and you wouldn't believe how poofy they were before blocking. Almost unrecognizable!

Thank you both for clearing that up. I did wonder if the photo was just unblocked or a totally different stitch. Glad the Coral 2 block is looking good. Can't wait to find out what's next!

Ballyconneely Shawl by Maggie Jackson
My goodness, I just did a google search for an image of this shawl and ran across the most foul-mouthed description of it.

The bottom rectangle of the center piece is 79 stitches wide and 36 rows in length. It is done in the Coral 2, with 3 stitches on each side worked in the seed stitch.

The main section will be wider than the bottom rectangle and it will begin with a simple ruffle, perhaps a kick pleat or a bell. I need to extend the bottom rectangle to provide the space for the overlap and the question is, do I continue with the Coral 2, which will be largely covered, or work it in a stockinette stitch?

I so appreciate everyone's help - this is a really great site

Ballyconneely Shawl by Maggie Jackson
Phew! I just found a link to this on Ravelry, thankfully. I don't want to ever run across that other link again.

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...conneely-shawl

I'm making my shawl based on the dimensions, the stitch patterns are of my choosing. I've never done anything quite like this before, finding various and sometimes new favorite stitch patterns and putting them together; hoping to create a "whole greater than the sum of its parts".

Wow, that's quite a creation! It looks kind of patchwork, can you just add a piece or pieces where you need them or keep knitting to the length you want?

In looking at the pattern directions, it's knitted in two parts, the bottom two rectangles on the back are worked from the top down, the rest is knitted in one piece, beginning at the bottom of the sleeve to the midpoint at the neck opening and then worked in reverse. It is then joined across the back above the flap. The yarn used is a linen blend with a size 8 needle and she uses 3 different colors of yarn, natural, chocolate and cream.

I love the Maggie Jackson designs and have used a linen blend yarn of hers in a summer sweater. Very nice.
This is going to be a stunning shawl. I'd work the main body and the lower Coral 2 rectangle if that's possible. Then see what stitch looks good to extend the rectangle: stockinette or maybe even garter stitch on a larger needle? Something that isn't too heavy looking.
