I'm not sure what to say about this shawl. Take a look at the pictures. You can see it's rather long. Like, three meters long! I never intented to it to be that long (according the pattern the shawl should have been ca. 160 cm / 65 inches long, and I followed the pattern)
What do you think of it? Would you wear it? If you would, where and with what? I like the drape and the feel, it feels luxurious but I'm not sure if it's practical to wear - anywhere! Here are the specs:
Yarn: Junghans Wolle Opal, a aran weight 100% microfiber yarn
Needles: 5,5 mm long circular
Pattern: Silver Strand from the book Knitting in the Sun
Modifications: I made the double yarn overs every second repeat and every other time single yarn overs (I made this by mistake during the second repear and decided to treat it as a design element rather than a mistake!). I also made only nine pattern repeats instead of the 11 the pattern says, as I ran out of yarn. The shawl took good four balls of the Opal - the shawl weighs 222 grams.
Like I said, I'm not sure yet if I like it and/or will want to wear it. I'd appreciate your opinions!
