I really wanted to knit up the silk/cotton 4ply ColourMart yarn I bought quite some time ago but couldn't find quite the right pattern. I started to knit the Butterfly Forest shawl with this yarn but soon discovered that it wasn't working and frogged. While I was trawling through my endless queue I saw the Brangian shawl pattern and realised that this was the right one. I wanted the right combination of yarn and pattern because this shawl is also part of a swap for more gradient dyed yarn.
I knitted the shawl on 4.5 mm needles and it knitted up really quickly. It has turned into a good sized shawl.
Once blocked the yarn softened and became nice and drapey.
Here is a close up to show the subtle shift in the pattern.
