Little Bit O’ Soul

This is my next knit project: a prayer shawl.

I’ve used this yarn before when I made Crickets Sing For Anamaria. It, somehow, came back into rotation. Oh, I remember now…I was going to incorporate into Lady Killer with some other purples I had, but the hue was different.

I am almost certain I have enough for a 72-inch length x estimated 18-inch width. I have based my estimations on a swatch. That’s right, I swatched for gauge: 36 stitches equaled 10 inches. I cast on 270 stitches + 2 + 4 adjustment stitches for a total of 277, adjusted back down to 276.

The stitch pattern is something I came up with based on some other lace stitch I had come across. I basically, realigned the stitches for better recollection.  Below is a swatch in cotton for stitch definition.
