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.
