Monday Ta-Dah!




I'm happy with the way it turned out and really glad I didn't frog it.  All the info is below.

Pattern LinkBernat Prayer Shawl (Must register) or Ravelry HERE (Must be a member)

YarnDROPS Safran 100% Egyptian Cotton, White, 4 1/2 balls (174 yds per ball)

Hook:  G

Edging:  I changed the edging and did one round of sc and the second round 5 dc shells all around.

Notes:  Chained 255 to begin instead of 201 for a larger shawl.  (Shawl is worked from top-down)  Took me 8 days of working a few hours at least 5 of those days.  Some days I did nothing.  I was in no hurry.  It was an easy pattern, but I didn't like the way the rows ended.  I ended each row with a ch 1, turn, and then dc in next dc to begin each row.  It just looked better to me and made more sense than doing something different on each side.

On to the next!

  6. Hi Pammy! This came out beautiful! I'd love to try one, having just finished a bunch of frogs (They're going fast though, and I'm wondering if I may need to do MORE!).. Anyways, I have a big one pound skein of white acrylic yarn of some sort.. Do you think I could get away with using that, and would it be enough to enlarge it like you did? The weather is just starting to cool down some here, so it would be a nice time to make one!.. It's supposed to warm up towards the second half of the week, so I'm going to try to get some baking done while the weather permits! Hope you enjoyed your weekend, and have a great week ahead! ~tina

  13. Wow, it's so lovely, Pammy Sue. I esp. like the shell edging, great choice. I'm a scallop freak and decided last week to add a small one to my scarf that I hope to finish tonite!

  17. I am so glad you did not frog this beauty. It turned out really really nice. Are you still going to have your sister put it on Etsy for you? What's the $$$$? Not that I'm getting married and need a white shawl. It's a keeper pattern.
