Flechtmuster Schal/Braided Shawl

Here you go with the promissed pictures. I had to soak and pin the shawl last night, but didn't want to bore you with only those shots, so I waited until it was wearable and I could bother one of my friends for an "action shot". So, what do you think? Am I ready for the chilly fall evenings out on the porch? I think so.


An here are some blocking shots:

It's surprising how different it looks, when worn and not on a brown carpet! I love it! The color is gorgeous on you!

Very pretty, great job! I like the way the knots turned out and the color is so flattering on you! Did you get your hair cut? It looks shorter! =)

WOW Angelika - it is gorgeous!! That braided section is special and beautiful. I fell in love when I saw the pattern, but was frightened away by the German instructions!

I love that -- especially the crossed cables -- I've never seen that technique before.

You are definitely ready for fall! What a gorgeous way to keep warm.

You look fantastic with your new shawl! I was confused about the construction, but the finished photo makes more sense to me now. Very clever design! You knit that one very quickly.

I really want this pattern but I can't find it. I need english. I wrote the knit list but no links to a place that sales english version. I love the color you did.

It's beautiful. I've tried to find somewhere to buy the pattern, but they only want to sell it to me if I also buy the yarn. Do you have any ideas?
