As usual, I've taken on more than I can chew....
I decided on the "Lyra" and began it as a half-circle, only to discover that I can't figure out a place in the pattern to split it in order that the shawl would come out somewhat symmetrical. Argh!
So, I'm thinkin I'm gonna start it as a full circle and once I've gotten my brain around the pattern see if I can't find somewhere to split it.... We'll see...
Well, I'm thinking I'm going to attempt a Niebling shawl. I've narrowed it down to 2 that I'm really tempted to take on, "Lyra" or "Lotus Blossom..."
So here's the question... I only want to do a half-circle version, and they are both full rounds. In the Niebling book I have now, every single pattern has a "resting" row alternating with working rows (that I could use as a return (wrong side) row working in the flat). I'm wondering if any of you may have either of these patterns that I could get an answer without buying the chart. It just kills me to spend the $$$ on a pattern without knowing if it's gonna work. Any help would be most appreciated!
