28's Cousin 53!

28's Cousin 53
June 2017
This is the first time I've knit this pattern, but it won't be the last. The pattern is very easy (only 53 rows); however, the last ten rows seem to take forever to knit because at that point the shawl has over 500 stitches.

The pattern said blocking was not necessary; however, I recommend blocking the shawl. Without blocking the shawl is barely four inches wide; with blocking, 9 inches.

I loved knitting with this yarn, and the silk it contains adds drape and softness to the shawl.

  1. Beautiful and I'll bet it feels luscious to the touch.

  2. Nancy that shawl is beautiful. I think the blocking adds a lot to shawls. Just hearing how much width was added to yours convinces me that it's a must. It is so pretty! Blessings, Betsy

  3. Oh this is beautiful - the yarn and the pattern. 4" is so little!! Glad you blocked it out. It's lovely and I bet that yarn feels rich!

  4. The color is beautiful and the shape and drape is lovely. It is just enough to take away that AC chill across the shoulders in the summer. Beautiful work Nancy!

  5. Nancy, I love the color you worked it up in. Love the simplicity and that is not a v shape. I'll save the pattern link for sure.

  6. Beautiful. I think I would have blocked it too, if only to pull the eyelets out to be more obvious.

  7. Ooh -- another beautiful shawl. So, do you tend to wear shawls in the winter? I'm more of a button or zip up sweater girl but I think these shawls you've been knitting are gorgeous!

  8. Lovely!! The color green is so nice:)

  9. Wow! It is a nifty little shawl and looks great in this color!
    Great job!
