Cranberry Shawl

Pattern: from Knitting Lace Triangles
by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn: KnitPicks Bare laceweight dyed with Kool-Aid Black Cherry
Needles: size 4 Options circular
For this first outing in Evelyn's new book, I went the easy route and started with one she had already mapped out - the Sand Dollar Shawl - which alternates just two different lace patterns (Ripple and Medallion) and then I added an extra two repeats of the Medallion pattern before the edging.

I think I could have used a size 5 for this. It still comes out more scarf size than full shawl, but it's very wearable and drapes nicely over the shoulders.
A nice and quick little project that I enjoyed and plan to donate for a silent auction later in the year.
