FO: Choose Your Own Adventure Shawl


Larger photo/Even larger photo

And a scant six months later, I have a shawl!



I. love. it.

It’s the largest piece of lace I’ve ever knit and I’m so happy with the way it turned out.



I’ve been experimenting with how I’m going to wear this and I can see me actually using the shawl a lot.

Pattern: Mandala a.k.a. The Goddess Knits Anniversary Shawl by Renee Leverington [My Ravelry project page]

Yarn: Unknown base lace weight yarn (possibly Knit Picks Bare Lace) hand dyed by Vormer, approx. 170 g used in total (very roughly 1400 yds/1280 m used).


Try to ignore the goofy face! – Larger photo

Needles: 3.25 mm double pointed needles for Clues 1-3 and 4 mm circular needle for Clue 4 and 5 (not done on purpose, I’m just an idiot!)

Size: 53 inches/135 cm in diameter when blocked (for scale, I’m 5’6″ tall)


Knitting style: English for the shawl, Combination for the edging.

Modifications/notes: Knit the pattern exactly as prescribed!

For reference, I chose the following charts for each section/clue;

Clue 1: Chart D
Clue 2: Chart A
Clue 3: Chart C
Clue 4: Chart B
Clue 5: no choice (one chart for edging)

  1. OMG – THAT is absolutely stunning. I love it over the black outfit – it really makes the lovely color stand out. Beautiful job on the knitting too!


  2. I got stalled on clue 1!! just didn’t look like the photos. I need to get my bottom in gear and start over. No way my shawl could ever look as good as yours, but I can get it finished. You did a great job and I love the way your choices flow together. Good work!!


Because it's just me talking if you don't comment!
