Haruni Shawl

RickMartin's picture

I have a neighbor who has done so much to help my wife and I as we struggle with my illness. So I finally made a shawl for her.

This is the Haruni pattern from Emily Ross. Many have said this pattern was difficult - it really wasn't but it's a good idea to do it EXACTLY as she says not what you think she might be saying. The I-cord bind off took forever - and was tedious beyond belief. But it does look nice.

I did an extra repeat of Chart A (the body) to make it a 28"x60" size. I used Zephyr 50/50 wool/silk, vanilla in color, on a US 2 needle.

If you take the pictures from a great enough distance and then apply Photoshop anything - even my knitting - looks good.

Maybe that's my problem...I have to learn to knit lace in Photoshop...because using wool to make lace I find difficult! (grin)
The shawl is beautiful!!!

Stunning is exactly the right word.
That shows some serious skill and patience.

Absolutely gorgeous. I'm speechless.

Very stunning. This is in my queue to knit as soon as I finish my current project. Should be casting on in a couple of days. I have had the pattern and the yarn for far too long.

Great work

Beautiful shawl Rick. It has been on to do list for some time, have even printed it out, but am a bit daunted with all that crochet finishing.

I've done crochet bind off - it's easy and quick. This was an I-cord knit bind off - took a huge amount of time in comparison. This yarn was to fine to do the crochet that's why I did the I-cord knit instead. I would have doubled the yarn and done the crochet I think it would have looked nearly the same and been much quicker!

This is so beautiful and what a wonderful and generous gift. Hope you are doing okay. I can completely sympathise. I am in the same boat having COPD.
