Failed Shawl

I made a shawl.  My very first shawl.  And it is pretty cool.

It is called Wingspan.  I saw it on Raverly (it was trending) and thought, I could make that. Plus, I needed a shawl for my 2012 project challenge.

I used  a very cool yarn called Rhythm from Jojoland.  Love it.  The color change is amazing.

So, first I read the pattern wrong and made the first section way too big.  I re-read the pattern and re-made the first section, liked it and moved on (big mistake).

So my shawl turned out more of a scarf size.  I did wonder why it worked up so quickly.  I probably should have stayed with the larger knitting section I had first accomplished.

Oh well.  It was a learning experience.  I don't get to count this as the shawl in the challenge, but I do plan on remaking it in the shawl size in the same yarn...some day.  For now I am happy with the scarf or maybe D can use it as a shawl.

Have you had any recent "learning experiences"?


  1. That first section took me a couple of tries figuring it out. Once I got past it, it was smooth sailing. Love your yarn!
