Mara Shawl #3

Mara Shawl 3
I seem to be addicted to the rhythmical loveliness of the Mara shawl pattern, because this is my third. Knitted in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8 ply in Charcoal, 180 rows were knitted in stocking stitch before beginning the K1P1 ribbed section. And, having stated before that I prefer the cast off method recommended in the pattern instructions, I shall have to renege on that! I'll be going back to Jenny's surprisingly stretchy cast off next time.
Shall I knit another Mara? Absolutely! But not just yet - I have started a beanie for G using some of the other Bendigo wool I received last year. And in addition to that, I have been thinking about the practicality of a poncho for me, now that we live in cooler climes...... any excuse will do!

  1. Wow - just gorgeous. No wonder you are addicted to it, you're so good at it! Good luck with the beanie, and lucky you being in a cooler climate. Good luck with the cyclonic weather approaching - send some rain over here to Qld! cheers Wendy

  2. Where can I get this pattern?
