- Used a BRIGHT variegated yarn.
- Steam blocked.
I steam blocked this because I wanted to get more of the point on the center and for the wave on the sides to be more prominent, well, I also wanted to wear it that night. It worked really well to steam it! The wave on the sides stands out better with this method. The other thing I realized was that I didn't need the top to be a straight line. With how you wear a shawl, who cares if it is at a 45 degree angle or even? This realization also helped me to give more fabric to the wave area. Ah ha!
Here is a close up of the lace pattern. I love how the color changes worked into the pattern. Completely random...I think variegated yarns with either short runs or inconsistent runs would work best for this pattern.
US Needle: 9
Yarn: Prism Saki (1 skein; enough left over to make baby booties!)
