In 6 days I managed to knit this colourful shawl as a gift for my Aunt.
She had told me that she had seen a lady at church wearing a beautiful shawl and she was going to see about getting the pattern for it.
The pattern wasn't available but she did get a picture and the measurements and passed them on to me.
When I found out that the whole family was getting together this past weekend it seemed like the perfect time to surprise her with this shawl.
I pulled out 4 different yarns from my stash and went yarn shopping and came home with 3 more different yarns that I thought would go together nicely. After a quick gauge swatch and one false start that ended up being pulled out I was on my way knitting with 2 or 3 strands at a time and switching yarns randomly. The original shawl had a large square collar that we decided to omit. I'm really happy with how it turned out. I hope you enjoy wearing it!
