Fall Breeze Shawl Custom Order

My friend Elfriede ordered a Fall Breeze Shawl from me. She came to visit last weekend and I got her to model her own shawl. :) This version of the shawl was knit with Berroco Vintage in the Buttercream Colorway. Yum yum! I got this yarn during my last order from WEBS. You can see this post for more on the delicious yarn I got from WEBS.







I originally designed this shawl using worsted weight yarn, but after knitting two of them, I'm thinking a sport/dk weight yarn or even fingering weight yarn might do better justice to this one. The lacy edging is just three repeats of a lace chart but most of the shawl is just straight stockinette stitch. Anyone out there interested in some mindless stockinette knitting? Just get the yarn of your choice and start knitting. The pattern is free! :)
