Conti, since you're knitting this, I thought I'd bring this to your attention. I happened to come across two versions of this pattern, and there's a link that has corrections to the "original" pattern, though it doesn't say which of the two is the original pattern. Here's the pattern links:

Version 1
Version 2
Corrections

I think the corrections go with Version 1 shawl because that's the same sequence of stitches the corrections list. What bugs me is that the stitches on both shawl samples look similar, yet differ from each other because one has a 30 row repeat and the other one has a twenty row repeat. And Version 2 doesn't list any type of suggestions for yarn, needles, gauge.

Please let me know how this is to knit and which pattern you'll use. I'm thinking I'd like to make one, but I'm a little bit baffled by which pattern is "safer" to use.

I couldn't wait. I cast on about a half hour ago. I'm making Version 1, and I don't see where it needs corrections. I'm about 4 inches in, and it's really easy. It goes fast in the thick wool and big needles. I would say try it!

Edit: I'm knitting it in KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Bulky, on size 9 needles, and it's going pretty fast!

Cookworm, I saw this pattern a while ago, but lost it again (i.e. didn't bookmark it immediately). Thanks for bringing it up again.

ContiKnitter, please let us know how it's turning out for you.

I want to make this for MYSELF - okay and for my mom, maybe....

I posted pics on my blog, but here it is. It's going really well. I'm doing mine in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky in Pewter on #9 needles.

And here's a closeup:


Enjoy!

Wow! That is so nice! I wish it had a chart though. I can follow those so much better. I suppose I could make one if I really wanted.
