Victoria Lace Shawl - Complete!

Another beautiful shawl designed by Kristine Franklin of St. Seraphina Knits! This one is her Victoria Lace Shawl and it was so simple to make. The pattern is easy to remember so you don't have to keep track of what row you're on or where you are in the repeat. I'll make this one again! It's made in OnLine Marly, a superwash DK merino wool in Baffin Blue. This yarn is sold out on, which is sad because I love it!

This shawl took 10 50-gram skeins of DK weight and the final measurements were 23" wide and 74" long (the pattern calls for 23" by 66"; I prefer it to be longer). I used a size 7 32" Addi Turbo circular needle. I probably could have used a size 8 needle, but once blocked, I think the gauge is just right.

Like the other shawls I've done, this one was given to the local cancer centre. On to the next!
