Wrapped In Orange Wool

 Oh dear, I have done it again. Repeating a pattern - and this time you will see number twelve. Yes, you read the number right...

I have no excuse other than I love knitting these shawls and that they are wonderful to wear in any yarn. And the stitch definition is amazing when you use a 9mm needle in one end of the cable and a 3mm needle on the other end.

Tassels and glass beads for a better finish.
This is a simple rib pattern with one knit and one purl stitch. 

All the knit stitches are knitted through the back loop. As simple as that.

I modified the pattern to get wide wings on the shawl. That makes a great comfort when wearing.

I do that by increasing two stitches at beginning and end of each row.

I added a purple edge and purple tassels to fresh it all up. The top edge got at bit loose. But I can live with that.

I can not promise to stop knitting these. I may come over a yarn that will fit just fine - or a color I need for something. Who knows?

Don´t you ever say never to me
