Today I thought I would share photos of the Virus Shawl that I made for Karina’s birthday a few months ago.
I love this pattern! It takes a little bit of paying attention at first (since it’s just a chart), but is fairly easy to memorize once you get the hang of it and it also goes fairly quickly. I managed to get this shawl done in 9 days. I was even able to get 2 more shawls done in the same month.
The yarn I used is Lion Brand’s Shawl In A Ball in Soothing Blue. I loved working with this yarn. The color changes keep things interesting and the end result looks like the color changes were deliberate. One 150 gram skein was enough to make a shawl 52 inches wide and 20 inches from the top of the shawl to the tip (when blocked).
