Knitter Bunny's™ Dutch Rabbits and Yarns

Bunnies and Yarn, Need I Say More

Wing of the Swan Shawl


It is finished. Done. Blocked to within an inch of its life. Copious notes kept, and a new color ready to be skeined to check myself. Stats below.

Yarn: Alpaca With a Twist Fino, 875 yds plus an ootch of a second skein, 70% Baby Alpaca, 30% Silk

Needles: US Size 4 Susan Bates 24 inch circular needle

Pattern: My own, cobbled together from Miriam’s advice and stitch patterns in heirloom knitting and Barbara Walker’s Second Treasury

WOTSS finished 1

WOTSS finished 2

I will be altering the pattern a bit to accommodate the changes that I want to make. There are a few too many rose repeats for me, not enough of the dragon scales in the second section, and I want to clean up the center panel a bit to make it pop more.
