Well, not really. It is a heart of tassels. It holds my latest shawl in bright red. I am absolutely and completely satisfied with the outcome.
I have been knitting a few of these shawls and has been experimenting with how to get a wide wingspan and still have sort of a shawl.
And this time I got it exactly as I wanted.
I followed the pattern until I had 167 stitches.
Then I started increasing four stitches on right side and two stitches on wrong side until there were 209 stitches.
And then I started increasing four stitches on every row.
Soft, red, warm and bright. Just like a sunrise. Just like a happy day. Just like love.
