Merry’s Silk Shawl

My friend Merry asked if I could make her a shawl, something lacy and light to match her peach Nigerian dress which she could wear to the Church. We selected several type of yarns and the final choice was silk/merino/kid mohair yarn.

Merry is not very particular about the motifs and leave it to me to decide. I did my research for one to compliment her dress and found one from a stitch dictionary. I redraw the chart and make each row colorful for easy interpretation.

I could have made the shawl wider but at the time I started I was not sure if the skeins I have would be enough (6 skeins of 25 gr silk/merino/kid mohair yarn). But now I know.  I only used 4.5 skeins for the shawl and the 8 inches fringe.

This shawl has been tested. Here is a beautiful shawl Kalpana Chitharanjan of Ravelry made using acrylic.

Below I am using the same pattern with rayon/cotton mix to make a small scarf.

Pattern is free from March 7 to April 20, 2014 at Ravelry and Crochetville.
