This is a basket weave design and is 106 inches long, almost 3 yards, and 21 inches wide. Very heavy. This is the type of shawl that wraps around you on a cold evening, and it just doesn't fall off. And it will keep you warm on a walk when a heavy winter coat is too much.
As you can see, there are lots of colors. Most of the color is in small amounts. The green is the base color. I have to admit that I am sitting here thinking - ooooo I would love to wear this~~~
But I made it for my friend for the cold upstate New York weather. It is late in the season, but still, there are cold weeks ahead and many more years ahead.
It was fun to make, but then, all knitting is fun to work.
Love you Jody.
