I followed the stripe width given in the pattern, but made up the order of colours as I went along. The pattern is really easy to memorise - this is perfect knitting group and car knitting. The shawl grew really fast, and I like how dense and squishy it feels in DK weight yarn. The final shawl is lovely and long, and nice and cosy. It's not for me though; it's going to a friend who is about to have a baby. She does lots of crafts, and has already knitted my cloud blanket for her baby for herself, so I thought I'd do something a bit different. I really hope she likes it (otherwise I might have to 'borrow' it back).

This is definitely a pattern I will revisit. I always have lots of half balls left after finishing projects, and am never quite sure what to do with them. This shawl is a great way of using them up.
