Alright, folks. I have a vital question that requires your input.
On our honeymoon, I bought this yarn.
I would like to knit it sometime soon, after knitting a promised shawl for a friend. It is very special yarn, of course, so it must be a very special shawl. Thus, I am willing to spend money on a pattern rather than sticking to freebies on the internet.
Last night, there were a few patterns that caught my eye. I have to say that right now I am leaning towards Jaali.
Or else Damask, by the same designer.
I really love how textural these shawls are while still looking lacy and light.
But this pattern from Knit Circus--Ripen--also stuck out to me.
I love the simplicity of this, and the pretty leaf edging.
The yarn is single ply, and I imagine that has an effect on how it will look when knit up into these patterns; on my very long list of books to check out from the library there are a few meant to educate me a little more on yarns and fibers and what works best for what and why. But that aside ... which of these patterns would you choose? :)
