FO: Radiance Shawl

My “Radiant Renata” is done!

Radiance Shawl
Pattern: Radiance Shawl
Yarn: Schaefer Yarns Andrea, colorway “Renata Tebaldi”, about 3/4 skein (800 yds)
Needles: US 4 / 3.5mm

Modifications: Went down a needle size because of the thin silk yarn. Increased the lace part of the ruffle by 4 rows, and the garter portion of the ruffle by 4 rows.

This is a great pattern – I loved the checklist section, which gave line by line instructions, the stitch counts, and the percent finished in several sections. It’s easy to knit, and goes pretty quickly.

Blocking it was interesting… After the initial blocking the ruffle didn’t ruffle very much, so I reblocked the ruffle by itself, which worked out pretty well. Details are on my Ravelry project. I found it difficult to get the blocking wires through the stockinette and garter stitch sections – so if I made this again, I’d put eyelets along the edges of those sections.

    Lovely! Although I’m not sure about the “goes pretty quickly” when it comes to my knitting speed.

    Love the way this turned out, color, size, everything! I’m not a ruffily person, so have looked at the pattern before and thought, too many ruffles. But, I like the way yours turned out…….may have to try it, now afterall. Keep on inspiring us!

    Cheryl…that is very very pretty. I just finished a shawlette in a fingering yarn, and I promised myself to only use laceweight in the future. I may have to add this to my list, since it fits the bill.
