Modifications/notes:

  • Yarn substituted from lace-weight to sock-weight (although it does state in the pattern it’s easy to do this so not really a major modification)
  • Omitted the 5th section because I wanted a finished size similar to that of the pattern and I didn’t want to run out of yarn
  • Had 15 g of yarn left in the end so doing the 5th section could have been cutting it close!
  • My ruffle doesn’t quite sit in the same rufflley way that the pattern ruffle does, but I like it!
  • I may have blocked it a little too severely because the poofy-wrinkly bits aren’t all that poofy or wrinkly at the top.
  • I may be a little self-critical sometimes.
  • This yarn colour defies being photographed even vaguely correctly. The colour is a very subtly variegated tonal yarn and is a lovely reddish-purple.
  • Overall, I love that it’s a mini-shawl that isn’t a triangle and will work in a great range of yarn weights and colours.

  1. Very pretty and the color is luscious!

    As soon as I finished mine, the weather became rather warm and lovely. I hope your Citrus brings the same 🙂
