FO Rainbow Shawl

As promised, here is the finished triangular shawl. I know some people get bored with Stockinette quite easily, but I love it, and I don’t mind purl rows either, there is an eight row border of garter stitch at the bottom to prevent curling (not massively effective as of yet) but I haven’t blocked it yet as I don’t have enough room, and I still need to order a blocking mat. 98 more words

I know I am very late since this pattern was released some years ago and so many sewers have made this skirt already and posted them online. 691 more words
