I made this shawl/wrap for a friend recently diagnosed with an agressive breast cancer. She will be undergoing a double mastectomy in about a week.
This shawl by Evelyn A. Clark was perfect - a VERY fast knit. I used Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool (45% Wool/35% Silk/20% Nylon) and a US #9 needle. Due to the yarn and bigger needle size I did the scarf size however it turned out to be 25"x68" and could easily have been blocked even larger.
