  1. Thanks everyone! Milney, it depends on how large you want the shawlette. I've not been able to try the pattern using 2 fulls skeins of the fingering yet. But the dimensions I provided are for 1 skein.
  2. Glad you are enjoying it Becky. And I know it will brighten someone's day at the nursing home! Thanks Peggy and Belinda.
  3. Thanks Janice! I used an I-hook, because it needs to be more "open" and lacey. You would not normally use an I-hook with fingering weight yarn, although I guess it really depends on the nature of the project and what kind of gauge, drape, and texture you wish to achieve.
  4. Thanks everyone! It's a fun pattern, and watching the colors come alive is magical with this yarn!
  5. The pattern can be found on Ravelry.
  6. I've made this shawl twice now, almost finished a 3rd. I love this pattern with the colorways of Chroma Fingering yarn. The purple is the Misty Morn colorway, and the green is the Seaweed colorway. I am almost done with a 3rd shawl in the Smoothie colorway (pics coming soon)

    Prayer Shawl

    Prayer Shawl for a member of my church. Pattern - Hippie Chick Shawl (a quick Google search will take you to it) Easy pattern, if not a bit boring. Using a self-striping yarn will definitely make it more interesting to complete. Yarn is Knit Picks Chroma Worsted in Jam Jar, which I think is a discontinued colorway. K-hook is used for body of shawl, I-hook is used for the border. The last photo gives a better representation of the actual color.
  10. Thanks TallGirl! Go to Ravelry and thank the designer for the video, I can take no credit for that!
  11. Thanks Heather and Sandy!
