It’s a wrap!


This yarn was one of my treasures from Wonderwool Wales in April, where talented silversmith Lyn Roberts was raising money and awareness for Target Ovarian Cancer.


Although there was a pretty shawl pattern with the yarn, I really wanted a crescent shape, so I drew up a shortlist on Ravelry and the final vote went to Cerris by Susanna IC. It would showcase the yarn and let the stitches pop.


I knew at the outset that I wouldn’t have enough yarn for the larger shawl, but decided  to go ahead anyway and simply do fewer rows on the plainer, short-row section.

You can sense that there is a twist to the tale, can’t you?

As I approached the point where I would start to create the crescent shaping, I concluded that I would not have enough yarn to do as much of the plain section as I had anticipated. With 365 stitches per row, and 20 cm completed, I contemplated my options.

Realising that the project was currently a long rectangle, and not wanting to undo the whole thing, I decided to mimic the bobble pattern from the cast-on row, and turn the project into a scarf instead!



It’s not the crescent shawl that I originally had in mind, but it seems like a good solution and I’m quite pleased with the result 🙂

Have you made last minute changes to projects and how did they turn out? I’d love to hear about them!

    What a gorgeous stitch! And a clever and attractive solution, too.

    I’m still pondering on what to make with my skein, though It is already wound 🙂
