Godela & Shawl

I finished this in May for my mother’s birthday, but I didn’t take any pictures, and had to wait for my dad to take some. This is her in their back garden, on the only sunny day they’ve had in weeks. I love the way she makes the shawl look elegant even over a polo shirt – and the colour is perfect for her! Sometimes a garment is ‘made’ by its wearer more than the person who produced it.

  • Pattern: Kiri.
  • Yarn: Almost 2 skeins of Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in Stream.
  • Needles: 3mm Addi Turbo circular needles.
  • Modifications: 18 repeats of the pattern, rather than the recommended 12. I like the smaller gauge for this pattern, and the delicate drape of the shawl.
