I made this shawl from 2 skeins Ficolana Merci. 50% wool-50% cotton. 200 meters per skein.
I like the yarn. It is very soft and nice to knit with. I bought it online at 123knit.com in Denmark.
The size of this shawl is: wide 158cm (62"). High: 62cm ( 20,5")
Knitted on needle 3mm. ( US 2,5)
I started with 3 stitches in the neck and ended up with 465 on the last row!
It is a nice pattern to knit but not for a new beginner.
This is my third shawl this year.
I have been asked to enjoy a group on Raverly, called 10 shawls in 2010 and I said yes.
How weird can one become, when bitten by the knitting bug? ;-)
