Pattern : Sliding Shawl (pattern not out yet)
Size : 49.5" across and 22" down the center (This was blocked, but not aggressively)
Modifications : None since this was a test-knit. I did have to go down in needle size to get the appropriate gauge though.
Even Wookie liked the end product!
This was definitely one of the more unstructured test-knits I have done. I'm not sure what the end pattern will completely look like as we went off more rough draft and pieces of it. The drafts for the chart I found confusing and they didn't include everything so I re-wrote mine so it made more sense. I would have been done sooner, but the yarn estimations were wrong, I ran out of yarn and had to place another order with Knit Picks, wait for it to arrive and then finish. I only had about 7/10ths of the border left to do. Overall, a little frustrating, but a lovely overall pattern. I would definitely knit this shawl again.
