Thérèse's knitting


Flirty Ruffles shawl

Designer: Dorothy Siemens
Pattern source: Fiddlesticks Knitting
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr in ebony   50% silk, 50% merino
Completed: April 2004

This shawl feels as wonderful as it looks. The pattern is beautifully written and charted. It's knit from the top center downward and outward, beginning with 3 stitches and ending with over 2,000. It was a lot of fun to knit (well, except for the ruffles, but they're worth it). I used 5.25 oz of Zephyr in all. Because the two fibers take dye differently, the color of the yarn varies just a bit--a lovely effect.
