“As You Wish” wrap: Ta-da!

Here’s my last FO for 2014:

As You Wish knit wrap completed by Hannah at notyouraveragecrochet.com

It’s the As You Wish wrap/shawl by Boo Knits (available on Ravelry for a small price).

Yarn used: KnitPicks Hawthorne Fingering in Belmont colorway, 1 skein

Needles used: US 7, 8, 9, and 10, respectively

Size: about 64″ across once blocked (163cm)

The wool/nylon blend yarn is nice and soft, and the colorway is GORGEOUS.  The photos don’t really do it justice.  It’s a pretty decent price over at KnitPicks, too.  It blocked nicely and has a lovely drape:

This wrap/shawl is a good weight for winter here in South Carolina; we’re averaging lately in the 50s and 60s (F) so it’s not near freezing or anything.  For other, chillier areas, this would probably be good for Spring or Fall.

Here’s a photo of the right side of the work:

I really like it, and the pattern wasn’t hard to follow — it wasn’t frustratingly difficult or boringly easy.  You really do mix and match parts of the pattern to make the shawl quite literally as you wish.  For details on exactly how mine was constructed, visit my Ravelry project page and check out the notes.  And can you believe this decent sized wrap just took one skein of yarn?  I’m really happy about that.

Well, Thanks for stopping by, that’s all I’ve got for today!  See you soon!

  2. It looks fantastic 🙂 Happy New Year!

  3. Such a wonderful last project for 2014. I’ve not tried lace knitting. Was it tricky?

    • Thank you! It was a little bit tricky at first but after a few rows it got better. I had to pay close attention throughout but it was not frustrating, and I placed plenty of lifelines throughout in case I needed to rip back (which I did a couple of times, so I’m glad I did those lifelines). It’s pretty fun!

  4. What a gorgeous scarf! A beautiful scarf for a beautiful lady!
