Muir Shawl

This is the Muir shawl from the Fall 2007 Knitty.com edition. I knit it using US 2 needle and 680 yards of 8/2 Tencel yarn. At the $1.85 per ounce price this yarn cost the shawl was cheap!!


I saw a shawl that I'm trying to copy - it was a simple trianglular shawl knit in stockinette (with a knit on border - which I figured out) but every eighth row was a drop stitch except the drops ran


No make that EXTREMELY QUICK - this blanket took all of about 5 hours to make! It's perfect for when that baby suddenly appears from nowhere!
