I am really loving the colors on this mid-riff shawl. I would have made it longer, but the back is approximately twice the length of the sides due to a mistake in construction. Despite the mistake, I like the lay of the shawl on the shoulders, contouring the natural shape of ones neck, shoulders and back. This shawl was made from some gradient yarn (D & F) gifted to me by an old acquaintance a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Much to my surprise some, the yarn F turned out to be something extra special, and that is provided I have the identification correct. Yarn D also turned out to be a natural fiber yarn, per a burn test. The solids I had purchased a long time ago for a Create Your Own Knitted Shawl Class I had taken; I never finished that shawl. I also was not crazy about the back loop single crochet at the beginning, but began to like it as I progress.

I made this during my short row craze. By the time I got to this project, I was so over short rows, as this project took a mighty long time due to the overlapping curl. I am not a big fan of this project because one you drape the scarf the curves it all lanky. Perhaps a thicker yarn with more body would hold up better.

The project name – Grazing In The Grass by The Friends of Distinction – comes from the colorway, which reminded me of a pasture.
