I've made a shawl like this last year for my MIL for Christmas. This time I am using LionBrand CottonEase and I CO 96 stitches and I am using 6.5mm needles. It's looking nice and I like the chunky look of it - another bonus is it knits up quickly.
After doing more complicated lace and more Intermediate knitting this past year, this pattern is a cake walk. I'm definitely glad I expanded my knitting horizons.
She had requested another item but I thought this was more suitable for her and she agreed so it's not a surprise but I think she'll be pleased with the FO.
