  • Substituted sport-weight yarn for sock-weight
  • Worked rows 9-28 of chart A twice instead of thrice because I didn’t want to run out of yarn
  • No other modifications.
  • I love how the beads add a little weight to the edge of this shawl (and bring some bling!)
  • I found the pattern every easy to work with. There was the right amount of stuff to do without being overwhelming (just what I need right now!)
  • Romi is a genius.
  • The photos don’t convey the subtly of colour in the yarn, which is a shame but I suppose I’ll have to keep that pleasure for myself!

  1. That’s stunning, and your photography (as always) is amazing. One of these days I shall finish a shawl – you’ve inspired me!
