I fell in love with shawls recently even though they don't work in Kaohsiung! I could only use them as scarf!
However the varieies of shwls attract me, I want to try the different things. So I start another one in crescent!
It is really a fast project, which I spent 5 days to finish it. However I hesitate whether I sould rip it after finished it because it seems not so beauty as the other knitters' work. I determined to keep it. The work is so pretty after blocking!

4. 採用I-cord 收針：這種方法我在網路上常看到，但一直沒有去實行，這次終於有機會了~
1. Knit in 2 plies. The original one is in 17 patterns, but I added 2 extra patterns because I think that I have tighter gauge (I found that 17 patterns are enough when I am blocking it.)
2. This project is knitting down-top, so I use 2 size larger needle to cast on. The cast-on stitches is 387 (for 19 patterns). Maybe you think it is too many stitches, but I feel that it's really happy to knit it.
3. It takes 40 rows for this shawl, so it's really fast-work. After you finished the patter, start the wrap & turn right away ( I use Japanese way instead of European way). Then the work is done after finish wrap & turn.
4. I-cord bind off: I saw it really oftern from other knitters' blog, but I had never tried before. It's a good chance to practice.
5. Blocking. The yarn is so soft after soaking, I love it!
Finished size: Wingspan along 180 cm. From cast on along center stitch to bind off 35 cm, so my blocking pad is not enough again... (The original one is 160 cm * 30cm, so 17 patterns are enough)
滿意度超高，再來一張吧！ 5 star satisfaction!
