It was a pattern by Ysolda, called Follow your Arrow 2. Each week, for 5 weeks, two options to knit were published and so a lot of different shawls were made. I was a few weeks behind but in this case I didn't mind. I am not so used to reading charts yet that I can visualize them and being behind meant that some were further and posting pictures of their progress which made it easier to choose for me.
I really loved the process, I learned a lot of new stitches and techniques, I love how ready available youtube is and how much you can learn from it!
I am soooo in love with this pattern, it was literally breathtaking the first few times I saw it and I am still very much in love with it.
I know, I could have made it bigger, but I wanted the peacock feathers at the points so I didn't want to make more of the plain extension, which was an option. So that would mean I have to rip until before the feathers and knit rows extra over there. Somehow I don't feel like that, so I decided to keep this one as it is so I have a reference when knitting other shawls since yes, I am really back into knitting and there will be more!
I used a variegated acrylic yarn, called Champion by Lammy. It knitted very nice, but I don't feel the blocking had much effect and it ended up a bit more stripy than I would like.
