Grandmas shawl
I knit it with size 19 needles and three strands held together. This shawl has two chunky strands and a ww strand. They are all acrylic but all together it is a soft shawl. I made it up as I went. It has a cable running the length (I would have died of bordem otherwise ) It is very hard to see but it is there. The ends are 2 strands with random YO's and K2togs thrown in for a lacier effect
