The Other One


Let’s step back into last winter for a while.

This shawl was the Fall 2015 Veera Välimäki mystery KAL in collaboration with my LYS TitiTyy.

The pattern is true Veera: stripes, garter stitch and short rows! The shawl ends with an interesting twisted-rib border that looks like sea shells. The yarn is lovely: soft 100% merino in deep, rich colors. And there’s nothing wrong with the pattern – it is clear and well written. But.

The shape is odd. The shawl is a half circle – not a crescent but a true half circle – which means it is too deep and too short to wrap around the neck comfortably. It would be better suited to wearing on your shoulders… but that’s not how I wear my shawls. A lovely pattern but I haven’t worn it once. The curse of the mystery shawl continues...
