Phoenicia ta-da!

2015 is starting off pretty productive (as far as yarncrafts go). My latest knitted wrap/shawl thing is complete! Introducing… Phoenicia!

Phoenicia knitted shawl/wrap on NotYourAverageCrochet.comThe pattern is available on Ravelry for $5.50 (click here).  There are many ways to make this shawl, but I followed the designer’s method (except I left off the picot edging).

I used 305 yards of DyeForWool’s Fingering Merino/Baby Camel in the Dyeing Rose colorway.  This is the leftover yarn from the hat I made when I reviewed this yarn a while back (click here for the full review).  This yarn is so lovely and soft and warm!

Closeup of Phoenicia shawl/wrap on NotYourAverageCrochet.comI really like the fan type lacy pattern of this one — it’s different from the very popular leaf style that seems to be all the rage these days, so it seems refreshing.

After blocking the wingspan was 70″!  Can you believe I got that much out of just 305 yards of yarn?  I couldn’t either.  Super impressed with this.  And finally, to demonstrate how it looks on:

Plenty of room to let it hang loosely, and it won’t fall off due to a short wingspan like many shawls I’ve seen.

I love it and I can’t wait to wear it with the hat I made with this yarn!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. […] it’s really more of a light fingering.  Very strong for a single ply yarn!  It made a great Phoenicia crescent shawl (and a Plume beanie from last year), and while this colorway is no longer available […]
