FO: Blattkranz Shawl
To go along with all the sweaters I knit that I don’t wear, I’ve knit another shawl I won’t wear. This is Blattkranz, an “interpretation” of a Niebling. I haven’t gone back to look at the original pattern but I would guess the original is probably a circle, which wouldn’t have been nearly as much of a pain to block! Because the stitch counts change from row to row (and not in an always-increasing way – one chart has 600+ stitches in the middle of it but ends with 373). I probably spent 45 minutes to an hour pinning, stretching, and re-pinning.

Overall, I’m pretty happy with this project. It’s large and heavy (200g of yarn, 950 5/0 triangle beads)
Yarn: Little Monkey’s Stitch and Spin Silk Sock Gradient in “Smoke Screen”, 204g.
