I finished the striped portion of my Andrea's Shawl last night. I must admit that I kind of chickened out on my chosen decreases, that is, sssk and k3tog on edges and a decrease either side of the central stitch on every third row. I only did this for 21 rows stripes, then switched to regular shawl edge decreases (ssk and k2tog) but stuck with the central decreases every third row.
And I ended up with this:
Hmm, not at all a triangular shawl. I was hoping while I was knitting that any extra volume created by changing the decreases could be taken up with blocking. Really, really hoping.
And look what happened:
Hard to believe! This is just an initial blocking to see what I could achieve with that top edge. My next dilemma is the picot edging - brown or red?
