FO – Afterglow shawl

kräuterzwergOn Ravelry I could buy this yarn from a member. The yarn is 100% merino wool from Zauberwiese. The color is very interesting. The wool is too good for socks, so it should be a shawl.

Thus, the color and the wool well come into play, I’ve opted for a simple shawl, without lace. Afterglow is a triangle scarf with scalloped edge. It is knitted from the edge to the center. According to notes from other projects I’ve cast on more stitches than suggested in the pattern. Nevertheless, it has become a small shawl: 130cm x 46cm. If I were to knit this scarf again, I would take also larger needles for a better drape of the shawl.

The pattern brings the delicate colors very good effect. I like it. My boyfriend said, however: these colors are not you! He meant that I’m not the delicate but rather the bright colors type :-) Maybe it will be a gift for the 7-year-old niece of my boyfriend …
