Icarus finished!

Icarus Shawl

Modeled by my Bugg

Yarn: Briar Rose Fourth of July
2 1/2 skeins; asking Chris for an estimate on yardage according to weight

Size 6 needles

Blocked Measurements (HUGE) - approx 88" across top and 58" down middle

This shawl is huge, but I would not knit it on a smaller sized needle. It is made according to the pattern from 2006 Summer Interweave Knits by Miriam Felton. Bugg and I liked the way it draped and how it stays in place when wrapped. I will be taking a couple of the first chart repeats out and re-making this in an attempt to squeeze it out of two skeins of Fourth of July.
