Well it’s been a little while coming, mostly due to bad weather and not being able to get a decent photo of it, so I’m excited to finally be able to share my big green sidewalk shawl with you… This was a really enjoyable pattern to work with, although I will admit to some frustration at the beginning because it seemed to take a long time for the pattern to become apparent and, due to the complexity and number of rows, even longer before I had the pattern committed to memory. Once I did get the pattern figured out I really enjoyed the l-o-n-g (and steadily longer) rows. It was a lovely meditative kind of project, not at all mindless; but not so hard once you get the hang of it.
And the result? Well, what do you think? It’s glorious, gigantic and green. I think I love it! Now I just have to get up the courage to wear it out in public… but if Kate can, then I guess I can too! It’s certainly cosy, like being wrapped in a big green hug 🙂
If you want to make one too you can find the gorgeous free pattern here.
Have a lovely week! Janette xox
