Pashminas, anyone? :)
I am new to knittinghelp and will be teaching myself how to knit again. My mother taught me when I was little and still knits, so I have *that* going for me :D
I would like to make a pashmina - partly because I want one and partly because I think that it shouldn't be a difficult project.
Does anyone have a great pashmina pattern? :D

I looked it up at dicitonary.com, and it said:
Quote:
pash·mi·na (pāsh-mē'nə) Pronunciation Key
n.
Fine, downy wool growing beneath the outer hair of feral Himalayan goats.
A soft fabric made of this wool.
That's all I can tell you.

From what I have seen, a pashmina is one of those shawl-type wraps, but it is rectangular instead of triangular

This is a pashmina, it is a rectangular wrap. Our (Dutch) crown princess used to be famous for wearing them. Hope this helps!

Hmm that's odd, I wonder what happened to the link.
I did a Google search and found this site that sells them, I am not in any way affiliated with them and I think they are horribly expensive, but this is the link to the page with pashminas.

Yes Yes! That's what I want to make - just like the dark turquoise one...
Do you know where I could find a pattern? :D
