Square Shawl

While in Mexico, I made a shawl for my niece and just now blocked it when I returned to Canada. I used Marianne Kinzel's pattern - "English Crystal", 350 gm of Shetland wool from Jamieson and Smith in Scotland, and 4.5 mm needles. I knitted on a sideways border of 8 stitches (knit 4, yo, k2tog - every row). I blocked it out on a king size bed to about 66 inches square and scalloped the edges. It is soft, fluffy, and warm.

How beautiful - love how the pattern unfolds from the centre, and the scalloped edge is a wonderful finishing touch. Lucky niece!
