Those pretty little leaves all in a row are done and I have myself a shawlette which I have begun to love. This winter accessory is perfect to wrap around your neck without having to scrunch it up and is actually quite warm. The silk content in the yarn, makes this shawlette so soft and luxurious just like wrapping yourself in a warm, velvety hug. Nice!
The construction is done in plain stockinette with a twist a.k.a short-rows. The result is a lovely curved shape – perfect for draping over your shoulders without having to “adjust” the whole time. This pattern took less than a couple skeins of Silky Merino and blocked out really lovely. I went with wet blocking by dousing the finished project in a cool bath with some Soak and laid it flat to dry. Thanks to indoor heating, it took just a couple days from sopping wet to soft and dry. I think that the leaves really perked up with the blocking.
