I finally got my act together and took photos of my finished Algiers Shawl to show you.
Here it is in all of those glorious blues. The yarn kit that I got from Woolen Rabbit isn’t exactly a gradient and I played around a bit with the colors, going from light to dark and then back out to light again. I felt like such a rebel doing it that way.
Let’s get in a little closer and look at those blues. I honestly can’t decide which stripe is my favorite, I just love them all. And look at all of those yarn overs. Lots and lots of yarn overs.
How about if we get even a little closer. I want to make sure you see that beautiful stitch pattern.
I truly enjoyed knitting this shawl. The pattern is easy to follow, as are all of Kirsten’s, and the design is simple and beautiful. That crochet bind off took a bit of time – that’s a lot of loops – but it was totally worth it.
And one last look of the whole piece. It’s been quite a while since I finished a shawl like this and I’m so excited to have it for the fall. In fact, I’ve already worn it and it’s warm and soft and lovely and goes with jeans and a blouse perfectly.
Sure, it took me all summer (and then some) to knit the thing but it’s done and ready just in time for cooler temps, outside fires, apple picking and more.
