my citron shawl is finished and i’m quite proud of it! the pattern is adorable. simple but a genious idea and very effective.
i did an additional pattern repeat which made it feel like forever until it was finished. the last few rows (the ruffle part) had almost 650 sts each *argh*
but the resut is worth it, don’t you think?!
pattern: citron by hilary smith callis, knitty winter 2009
yarn: handpainted yarn lace, colourway peridoto, 100% wool, 777m/100g
here’s how to do a 6th pattern repeat. maybe it’s helpful for you too:
1) 540 sts
7) 273 sts
9) k3, m1, (k12, m1)x7, (k11, m1)x9, (k12, m1)x7, k3 –> 297
19) k3, m1, (k13, m1)x7, (k12, m1)x8, (k13, m1)x8, k3 –> 321
