The shawl is no longer a mystery. Everything is revealed in all its glory. I have never imagined that the shawl would look like this. I really love the whole thing.
At first I did not like those big holes - but seeing it all together I changed my mind. They are a center in the piece and make it all come together.
I love the way the colors play together and that the orange ended up as a picot edge.
I had never done that before and had to use youtube to find out how to do it.
The only thing that was badly explained in the pattern. Anyway, I learned so much from it: That it takes a million hours but is perfect for the shawl.
What a fun mystery knit along this has been. Nothing has been revealed until the very last and fourth clue.
I am so astonished over Stephen West and his knitting designs.
What a talent and what a colorful and creative man to have in the knitting community.
The shawl is 190cm long and about one meter wide. I was hoping for something warmer but this will work just fine inside or in a warmer weather. I could definitely see myself knitting one in a thicker yarn..
I can not wait for the next mystery Stephen West is coming up with.
