I enjoyed knitting this pattern, and then again I did not. I mentioned before that I had difficulties keeping up with the knit and purl stitches on the wrong side.
The patterns I usually choose require concentration on a lace chart for the right side of your knitting and then an easy purling on the wrong side. I prefer feeling like, "Row 3 Concentrate! Row 4 Relax. Row 5 Concentrate! Row 6 Relax....."
In this pattern I had to pay attention to every row. So, I only enjoyed knitting every other row until I made it to chart 3. Then it was a breeze and I just knitted on without paying too much attention to the pattern. Well, I should have. The ending has two rows of Yo/k2tog followed by three rows of knitting. My yarn did not make it to the last three rows, so I bound off earlier and was left with a 12 inch yarn end. That was fine with me (no need to unravel again) and I am very happy with the result.
I love the softness of the Malabrigo yarn and the beautiful color mix on the shawl. Too bad that the color does not show its wonderful blue hues. I will just have to wear it to show it off one day in fall.
Have a great last day of August.
