Estonian Lace Christening Swatch Shawl Blocked!


After blocking, the swatch shawl turned out to be a whopping 3ft by 3ft! I guess I got a bit carried away with my swatching! To see more detail, click on the photos to enlarge images.

The swatch shawl was knitted in Jaggerspun Zephyr laceweight in white on 2.75mm circs. So, now I'll start the full sized version with a few minor changes!

    Thanks, folks, for the encouraging comments!

    Karhryn - yes it is a swatch. I got a bit carried away! LOL

    Maggisen - yes, the pattern will be available later as a PDF and maybe as a printed copy, too.

    Susan - the full sized shawl will be five feet square.

  • At 9:46 am, Blogger Kate said…

    That is absolutely beautiful. I don't envy you all the nupps but it's going to be a right bobby-dazzler.
