Kiri Shawl – FINISHED!!
Pattern: Kiri (12 repeats of chart 2) from All Tangled Up
Needles: 5mm Circs. I used a 7mm straight needle to cast off.
Finished size: I haven’t measured, but it is wider than my wing span so I’d say it is around 170cm wide and it reaches down past my bottom, so it is a nice size
Yarn: My handspun 2 ply from a locally grown merino cross fleece. Spun in the grease.
Comments: This was a fun knit, and as a relatively new knitter (since January 05) by far my largest project yet. I highly recommend using a much larger needle and the pattern’s instructions for casting off, this way you will get enough stretch to get the points on the edge (the points in the photo aren’t showing up too well because I wore it yesterday and they tended to curl.)
And, I found this cluster of pods on our walk tonight.
