Coquille is completed. "First", because already a new one is swimming about my thoughts waiting to be cast on. And the term "already" relates to this post where things looked grim.
This shawl is a quick and easy knit. As the name suggests, ridges end with a scalloped detail provided by short row gussets. The shawl is worked on two different size needles which produces an open feel without any lace work - or life lines - required.
I still have not decided how best to block the thing. If the gussets are blocked open and wide, I need more pins. If left soft and rumply I really don't need to block it at all.
Zauberball plays rather nicely with the vertical stripes. Long color repeats are the secret for this pattern.
However, the next one that I see in my mind does not leave the color repeats to chance. I'm hoping to control for color and wind up with a more stained glass effect.
The KAL for which this was done is not over until March. Plenty of time. . . .
