Kris-bel

Ishbel mosaic

The Ishbel for my friend Kris is finally done.

M was very helpful during the photo shoot.

I knit this in the small (shawlette/scarf) size. There was not enough yarn left to knit a full repeat of chart A and B to make it bigger. I'm very happy about how it turned out. And actually, the size is perfect.

Christmas 2007 (eek!) I gave Kris a gift card of something hand knitted by me. She requested something chocolate brown, soft and for the neck. I made 3 false attempts and I'm so happy I finally found a pattern and yarn that works together. I'm sure she'll love it as much as I do. At least I hope so.

Beautiful girl and beautiful pattern! I like the size of that. That's a shawl I could get behind (I find most of them too big for my taste).

It did come out very pretty (and your model is really adorable too!). I'm sure she'll love it. This is a wearable shawl, not something that you knit, it's fun and pretty, but then you're not sure what to do with it.
