hers in Debbie Bliss' Luxury Aran Tweed (just under 4 balls on a size 10 needle; she also knit another one in green on a size 9 needle - she says she like this pink one better) and I knit mine in Berroco Ultra Alpaca (2 skeins on a size 9 needle).
- Construction/Pattern - this is a triangular shawl, knit from the center back neck out to the edges - similar to the Traveling Woman.
- Yarn - approximately 400 yards of worsted/aran weight.
- Needles - of course everyone's gauge is different, but 9's or 10's - should work to give the shawl drape without being too loose (if in doubt, swatch!). You'll want to use a circular needle so you have enough room for all the stitches. The pattern suggests a 32" needle, but a 24" should work, or definitely something longer.
- Knitting Skills - intermediate lace, including increasing, decreasing and following a chart. Note that the pattern is charted only, there are no written instructions for knitting the lace pattern. If you've knit lace before, but never used a chart, this could be your project to learn about charts! This tutorial is a great introduction.
