This pattern is going "viral" as well it should. What a wonderful, easy but not boring, design!! Although it was published in a winter issue this pattern is lending itself very nicely to being made into a "just enough coverage & warmth" summer shawlette. I am making mine in Lotus sock yarn which is a bamboo/merino/silk/nylon mix. The color is a cool undyed off-white, which is very uncharacteristic of my usual bold color tastes. This yarn is the color of our sand down here in the Gulf Coast region. I should re-name my version "Sand" in homage to our beaches and the presently pristine sand.
