Cedar Leaf Shawlette

The Cedar Leaf Shawlette:  finished a few days late for my daughter-in-law's birthday but hopefully in time for her to take on their trip to Spain in a few days. I blocked it and sent it off after taking some quick photos. I wish I could take photos of her modeling it.

I'll be talking about the Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos (pattern gifted to me by one of my wonderful podcast listeners) on the next episode of Knitting Pipeline.

The pattern calls for DK weight but I used fingering weight/sock yarn from The Woolen Rabbit. The color is called Chimney Sweep. I love this color. It is a deep gray semi-solid with blue overtones. Fortunately, I have one whole skein plus a bit of the second leftover for a future project.

It is a good idea to use fingering weight for the shawlette. It looks great.

Paula, I've always liked that pattern. I'll look forward to hearing you talk about it on the podcast. That yarn, and color, looks lovely for it.
