I received tons of requests for information about the shawl in the blocking post from last week. The pattern is called Giovannina Stole and is published by Skacel (#21100405). It is not available on Ravelry right now, but you can call your local yarn shops to find it. I bought my copy at So Much Yarn in the Pike Place Market.
This pattern is absolutely lovely and a total labor of love - it took me a LONG time to finish it. I did not knit it straight through as each section is 30 rows and each are different, which takes a while to get used to in the beginning so I could not do it in front of the television or when people were talking to me for awhile. If you are going to knit it, you should note that my copy did not provide for two repeats of the middle section in the large chart, but you have to do it for the pattern to work out.
I used Madeline Tosh Merino Light in Saffron (it took approximately 2.5 skeins) and a size 4 needle. Since I used a different yarn and needle size than recommended, I only repeated Chart D 13 times instead of the recommended 20 times and, after blocking, it ended up approximately 65 inches as suggested.
