I adored knitting it and working the coloured yarns into stripes of increasing size... it also got a lot of attention on my stand... RAVELRY PATTERN HERE.
I used BFL in Precious Rock and BFL in Wood, both plied against a crystal lurex thread. Colourways from www.sarastexturecrafts.com... it was an easy spin and an easy knit... great for those moments when my mind was tired from working on show production.
The shawl pin was from a Devon based company... I can't remember the name though... if I come across them again I will grab a card and point you in their direction.
What have you been making?
