Cynthia @ Baxterknits gave me permission to adapt her 'Progressive' shawl as a square -- and here is the results. (see attached photos) - the colour is more true in the one you can't really see the patterning, and it is much more square then it appears in the photo where you CAN see the pattern - between the angle, the camera, my eyesight -- quality photos 'R' not us.
Red Heart 'Soft Baby' in a pale yellow - so pale as to be almost cream. Done on a size 10.5 (US) needle. It took about 12 ounces -- the soft baby comes in 7 0z skeins, so less then two skeins.
addendum - started the circular version over the weekend - it's currently 224 stitches around - 58 rows.
