I know that I have been kind of hit/miss here -- sorry! I started the shawl with KP lace weight but then after looking a some of the samples I also started the pattern with a Bernat DK weight acrylic yarn that I had left over from a baby blanket -- it has a little sheen and a very cotton-y feel. I am posting the lacr weight along with a closer stitch detail shot as well as the heavier weight yarn (they are both worked with the G hook). I actually love them both and will continue on with the lace weight (because I have enough material for that one :-) ) and probably make a DK weight for my 20-something DD who thinks it is wonderful for a scarf/shawlette that she would use.
H E L P !
I just finished the Take It or Leaf It, and (I'm embarrassed to admit it) it is about 5inches too small.
So I fear for the Fantasm---there is no gauge, and you can make it any size, so I shouldn't have to worry. But I would like to know how y'all are doing size-wise. I measured 4 inches along the spine and got 9 - 9.5 rows. How does that compare with the rest of you? That is using lace weight yarn and a size G 4.0 hook. (unblocked, of course). *red in the face*
