It's actually a very simple pattern - although those last dozen rows or so take some stamina.

Yummy colors.

Tripinnate Shawl

As you might expect, this larger version is very much like its little sister, with an adjustment that adds more stitches and rows. I owe the quick turnaround of this larger version to my friend and fellow Bitter Knitter, Heather Terrill. Thanks for knitting up a storm, Heather!

Heather used a gorgeous Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light in a colorway called Alazarin. It's primarily a red-purple color. It took less than two skeins for a shawl with a final size of over 60 inches wide and 24 inches deep. It is truly lovely.

Chat

I had a great time chatting with Lindsay. We talked about Loom Knitting, the Red Thread Project, and a cool glass prairie she is making, among other things.
