Indigo Shoulder Shawl aka Pigs in Blankets
The mohair yarn I spun, which wanted to be dyed indigo, have now turned into the "Just Right Shawl aka Cozy Capelet" by Lynn Meacham from Knitters Calendar for April 18. It does indeed sit nicely on the shoulders, giving warmth across the back and I found a vintage button in my stash to fasten it with. This is a simple to knit but really useful pattern, excellent for using up those odds and ends of yarn in the stash. I'm sure I will knit it again, I used the three skeins I had dyed, and the final result measures 40" across and 18" deep to the point, knitted on 8mm addi's.
