Nautilus Shawl!


I'd like to introduce to you my newest FINISHED WIP - The Nautilus Shawl.

The original idea began with a pattern by KarinKnits Designs called the Kelp Forest Shawlette.

I struggled with the start of the project, and really hated the yarn for a bit.  I read the pattern, watched the video, and really, just had to figure out the concept for myself without reading and watching about it.  Nothing made sense to me.  I spent days messing with the yarn, trying to get it to lay right, and cooperate.  And finally, it stuck.

And so, due to it's spiral nature, unique personality, and difference in design, I deem it the Nautilus Shawl.

I love the end result!

Come back tomorrow for the details - I have lots of tips and tricks to share.
