FO: Mystery Shawl 28/Fiona

Mystery Shawl 28 finished

Yet another mystery shawl designed by the inimitable Renee Leverington (Goddess Knits). If you ever want to knit a wonderful shawl, I can highly recommend Renee’s patterns (not affiliated, just a very satisfied customer). She offers several free mystery knit-alongs throughout the year, as well as regular pattern releases, clubs and paid mystery KALs, and the standard of the charts is always very high. If I haven’t finished one of her designs, the blame lies entirely at my own door!

I apologise for the lack of “modelled” shots; I did take some photos of me wearing the shawl, but the light levels weren’t great and I’m too bloody tired to re-take them!

Edging pattern flows from the main pattern and into a crochet cast off

The Posh Yarn lace I used was an “orphan” skein that either had a mistake in the colour or was left over from one of Dee’s updates. There were a couple of spots of blue dye dotted along the skein and you can see them in the finished shawl, but I really don’t think you’d notice from a distance!

A spot of blue dye in the orphan skein (middle and lower right of the photo) doesn’t detract from the overall shawl. (Click to view a larger image)
