The Falling Waters Shawl


This is a lovely shawl.  I want it for me.

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that it’s for a special person.

I finished it yesterday, and it will soon be winging its way to its recipient.

It’s knitted in Zealana’s Willow in DK weight.  70% merino, 30% cashmere… pure luxury!

The pattern can be found in “The Knitter’s Book of Wool” by Clara Parkes.

I only had 8 balls of this yarn (as opposed to the 11 balls the pattern asked for), so I’ve knitted a couple of repeats less, but for the purpose that’s meant for, I think the length will be fine.

Hope she likes it. 😉

  7. Your gift will be very well received I’m sure! Merino and cashmere, mmmmmm. Sounds so warm and snuggly! You did a beautiful job and it’s quite long enough to wrap up in. No worries there! I also happen to agree with the others, the leaping boy in the background is great! Very fun 😀
