I was consumed with the magic of short rows and couldn't stop knitting.
In no time the enchantment was over, and I was binding off.
This design is worked from side to side in a series of short row waves. The short row shaping makes Captiva a shawl that stays put when you wear it.
The scallop border is knit as you go.
The end of the border is finished with a tail.
A tail that's perfect for tossing over your shoulder.
The yarn is Dirty Water DyeWorks Edna, colorway From The Bog.
This yarn is one of my current favorites. Edna is a blend of Polwarth wool and silk, a combination that gives Captiva elegance and drape. You'll have to excuse the color variation in these pictures. Winter lighting is not my friend.
But I am enjoying the winter weather. An arctic blast created my color inspiration for the week.
