I finished my first (squee!) shawl-from-a-pattern-I-designed-and-am-publishing. I don't really have much of a reason for calling her Agatha, but Agatha she is.

It's made from three skeins of ShiBui Knits Merino Kid (used up every bit of the total 654 yards) in the colorway Mulberry. More details on my blog.

Nice! I've never seen that stitch pattern before. Your design makes beautiful use of it.

Love the pattern. Does it really swing up like that or is the top straight like many triangles?

Thanks, ladies!

Yes, it does swing up like that. I used the shaping I learned from making my two Erich Engeln shawls - instead of making 1 new stitch at each outer edge every right side row, you make 2. That single extra stitch on each outer edge gives you the curve (and makes it fun to block). It wraps really nicely around the shoulders - I think moreso than the standard triangular shawl. However, it means you're increasing your stitch count much faster, too. It was a fun knit, though.

The stitch pattern is my variation of Stitch Pattern 76 (page 39) from an Estonian lace pattern book (Pitsilised Koekirjad).
