One more Boneyard

Chestnutty Boneyard
I bought this yarn from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. It is handdyed Blue Faced Leicester and the colourway is called Chestnutty.

I didn´t want to knit something "complicated", just make something where the yarn came to be "in center". So I knitted yet one more Boneyard (design by Stephen West). This time I made 50% more increases in the first 2/3 of the shawl to get a shape that was more "rounded" - I think that it came out pretty much as I had hoped.

It has a very soft and luxurious feel to it, and my guess is that it will leave us rather soon for one of my relatives (as is the case with most of the shawls that I knit).

  1. I think that's a perfect pattern for that yarn. I'm so often attracted to the variegated colourways that I miss out on knitting the simple, yet beautiful stitches because of it. Beautiful job!
