Yarn/Needles: Posh Yarns Chloe (laceweight in merino/silk/sparkle) in Thank Heaven For Little Girls (my birthday purchase for 2011) on 3.5 mm needles. Approx. 400 m used.
Finished dimensions: Centre neck to centre point: 35cm/13.75 inches, Wingspan: 100cm/39.5 inches, Long curved edge: 154cm/61 inches (measured on the curve).
Notes/Modifications: Substituted sock-weight yarn for lace-weight because I couldn’t find a sock yarn that I liked for this project. This switch makes for a very light and delicate shawl, albeit a smaller one that the pattern originally would produce.
This yarn colour defies being photographed. It looks different in every different light condition. My camera hates it. I’ve done my best!
