My Hawthorne

Hawthorne by Susanna IC

hawthorne 7I had a great time knitting this little shawl! It was a quick knit for me — I finished in just a week. I had the yarn in my stash, so when I got the notion to knit a crescent with short-row shaping, off I went.

Sundara’s Aran Silky Merino is lovely to work with, but I think it’s a little heavy for this pattern. It’s beautiful, though, and I like the result. I used just under two skeins, a little less than 400 yards total. I can imagine Hawthorne in Spirit Trail Birte, or the intended Lyra, and I know that either of those yarns would be absolutely perfect.

I blocked it quickly, only pinning the points. I laid the wet piece out, checked to be sure it was shaped correctly, pinned, and left it to dry overnight. It looks just right. The fabric is so, well, silky, and it drapes beautifully. I’ll enjoy wearing it, I’m sure!

This weekend, or early next week, I’m going to hatch a new pattern on Ravelry. Stay tuned for Persimmon…

  1. I really love the color. Perfect for May. It is a very pretty pattern, and I think it will look absolutely lovely on you. Isn’t it fun when a project comes together so quickly? 🙂
