More Malabrigo - Colonnade Shawl
Can you handle seeing one last project with Malabrigo Burgundy? I promise, this one is the last, I only have tiny scraps left. For this shawl I paired the Burgundy with Malabrigo's Stonechat colorway. An interesting name for an interesting color combination! It's mainly burgundy and olive with some brown and lighter red mixed in.
The pattern is Colonnade by Stephen West and it's free on Knitty.com. I found it pretty quick and easy and I did a few minor modifications - more rows of the burgundy and a few less of the lace pattern just so I could use up all of my yarn. I started this project early in January during a burst of "start-it-itis". I think I cast on a half dozen projects in a couple days and I'm working on several of them now.
Of course I blocked it like crazy!
I like the shaping, 4 sections rather than a traditional triangle's 2 halves. I did add the loop and toggle button too. Raveled here.
