My first finish of 2017, is 28’s Big Sister 77 Shawlette.
I’m pretty excited about it.
Free Ravelry pattern published in 2010.
Yarn: KnitPicks Chroma in Fingering weight
Used 1 and a half skeins on size 7 needles.
It is a big success for me. I didn’t drop any unnoticed stitches and when I did drop I was able to correct.
I have a hard time with knitting when I cannot stretch it out and see it all at once. This is the case on this pattern for me. I kept plugging along. Kept believing in the pattern. It is a good one. Clear line by line instructions. Nothing fancy.
As others said On Ravelry notes, there is a lot of purling. Because I prefer to knit, I think you could reverse the knits and purls and get the same effect?
It was all ripply when I finished, so……I actually blocked it last night. I got it really wet in the sink and laid it out on a towel. This morning it was laying down beautifully.
I’m really happy with it. I encourage anyone to do this pattern. It is straightforward and a quiet hygge knit. Go for it!
