Argus Shawl



I love this pattern. Wendy did a fabulous job in writing the pattern as it's so well written. The pattern is easy & flexible as you can increase or decrease any of the sections to make the shawl to your desired size. This shawl was knitted in a week in between other projects. The only part that slows me down is adding the beads.

The shawl is knitted in Socks That Rock Silkie (Jasper colorway) - this is one of my favorite yarn & it really knits up so beautifully.

I love the shawl & the color but it's not for me ..... will be gone next week as it's my aunt's birthday & this is her favorite color. Hope she likes it !

Beautiful.

That's a lot of knitting to get done in a week. Your needles must fly.

That shawl is gorgeous and you only knit it within a week and in between other projects?? Should change your blog name to knitting machine and not one more row!! LOL

Your Argus shawl turned out so beautifully!!! Wendy visited my LYS and I picked it up there with two others of hers. The color is very pretty, too. Your aunt will love it!

I have started my Fields of Clover socks and adore your pattern, it is absolutely delightful to knit.

Beautiful! And I love how there are enough beads to add texture and weight, but aren't overwhelming. One day I may actually knit with beads...but I'm trying to decide if I have the patience! I'm sure your aunt will love this...who wouldn't!
