I knit a cream Malabrigo Mara Shawl this summer, and gifted it to my daughter
, Lauralee. Then I knit a black Mara Shawl
recently, and gave that one to her as well. She loves them.
But I always wanted one for myself, too, and so that's exactly what I did this past week.
(She can't wear this yarn so I'll definitely be keeping it!
My yarn is Araucania Azapa, #801 natural white tweed.
I've had it forever, just waiting on the right project. You know how that goes?
Here is the shawl. It looks less white than the hank looks in sunlight, but that's just the photography quirks. Plus, I think garter stitch creates shadows, and reflects less light.

, if you'd care to get more information. Needless to say, I love this shawl pattern.
It will lend itself to dk, worsted, or bulky weight yarn. Free Mara Shawl pattern
