I have completed my Lintilla and here it is.
I knit this from one 140-gram skein of Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 in the “EK” colorway on a U.S. size 3 (3.25mm) needle.
I did a total of 40 ruffles: 21 as I knit the body pattern and 19 for the edging pattern. It measures about 54″ along the straight edge
You can get a pretty good idea of how this shawl is constructed because of the shading of the Kauni yarn.
Because the ruffles are knit differently, they look different along the two edges. The ones knit as part of the body have the plain rows in-between knit 1 for each body row. The ones knit for the edging pattern have the plain rows in-between attached to the body every other row, so that part, of course, looks “rufflier.” Because I am a fan of symmetry, this mildly annoys me.
I attempted to take a pre-blocking photo to show how ruffly it is along one side, but Lucy had other ideas.
She fits nicely into the curve of it, doesn’t she?
I steam-blocked the heck out of the piece in an attempt to smooth out the over-rufflyness of the edging. That worked a bit. Here it is on Gwendolyn:
Anyway, there you have it. Looking at the projects on Ravelry, it appears that this does not bother anyone else, or if it does, they kept it to themselves.
It is an appropriately green project to have completed on St. Patrick’s Day.
Basil was looking appropriate for the day as well.
Lucy was busy mountain-climbing this weekend.
And I was busy documenting her activities.
