Robinette brought in this lovely shawl her friend MaryPat had knitted for her. It's the size and shape of a pashmina worked in half linen stitch on a large needle. MaryPat's used a beautifully soft palette of pale neutrals with a sort of Southwestern feel. She combined lots of different fibers, from cottton to Kid Silk Haze, and through in a few rows of sequins for a bit of subtle drama. It's a really spectacular piece.
Here's a closeup. You may have enough lightweight yarns in your stash already to work this wrap. It think MaryPat used probably 25 different yarns to achieve her elegant palette. I've already pulled a variety of fibers for my very own wrap. I think I'll call it "High Cotton" in honor of MaryPat!
