This is Lisa Gentrys Shoulder Shawl for Caron’s Simply Soft. I don’t use acrylic yarns, for once not because I’m a fiber snob, but because acrylic feels slimy to my hands and makes me sweat funny.
But I’m definitely going to knit this one at some point, even if it’s not in Simply Soft. Should be a pretty fast knit, I’m thinking.
The shawl measures approximately 56″/142cm wide x 16″/40.5cm long and calls for two skeins of Simply Soft, which is 315 yards per skein. If that’s correct, that’s almost worth the slime factor. (Most people don’t have the same problem that I have with acrylic. On the other hand, lots of people complain about The Dreaded Squeak.)
NOTE: THIS PATTERN IS CURRENTLY UNDER REVIEW BY CARON AS THERE’S SIGNIFICANT ERRORS IN THE PATTERN. I’ll post when I see a new pattern, I’ll be doing some frogging on the plane… *sigh*
