Roman Stripe Stitch Prayer Shawl

Just finished a prayer shawl using James C Brett Marble Chunky yarn. Thanks to Johnny Vasquez at New Stitch a Day, I learned how to do the Roman Stripe Stitch. He has THE BEST tutorials! The shawl is a combination of the Roman Stripe and stockinette stitch and contains a great palette of colors and texture.

Great website, and an all-around great guy.

Roman Stripe is a most intriguing stitch and it worked out very nicely in that yarn. Congrats.

Way too beautiful for a prayer shawl. If I had it on vanity would prevent and sincere form of prayer. I'm thinking maybe it'a box-seats-at-the-Santa-Fe-opera-look-at me-I'm-divine shawl.
