Finished this last night and pinned it out this morning, before we headed off for Christmas Eve celebrations. Cat (lower right corner) included for scale.
Pattern: Twinkle Twinkle Little Star shawl
Yarn: Misty Alpaca laceweight, in cream. I used less than 2 skeins for this (and bought four, so now I have a bit over two to make something else. Hmm.)
The pattern was pretty straightforward and quick, although the instructions for the edging are incomplete – not so much that any decent knitter couldn’t figure out where the errors are, but still a bit disconcerting if you’re not paying attention. I suspect the error has never been fixed simply because few other people have done the shawl yet – my initial Google searches brought up no other links to text or pictures about it beyond simply pattern listings.
I’ll be sending them an email with the corrections, but just in case anyone else out there is searching for the pattern and stumbles across this, I’ll be nice and post them here too:
Edging Corrections – I have included the missing instructions in italics for the relevant rows.
Row 5 – Knit across and knit the 13th stitch together with the first stitch of the shawl, knit 1 st into next st on shaw. (If you do not do this when you start the edging, you will be one stitch off as you start into the edging chart).
In addition, finishing the edging is left out of the instructions entirely.So *before* the line “Bind Off”, repeat rows 1 through 5 as originally written to add the garter stitch edge to the remaining side.
