FO - Hanami

Pattern: Hanami Stole by Melanie Gibbons of Pink Lemon Twist

Materials: Fino (70% Baby Alpaca / 30% silk) from Alpaca with a Twist
Colorway is #3002 "Rose Petal"

Needles: US4 (KnitPicks Options)

Notes: Recharted the first row of the basketweave and transition patterns to match the way the lace borders the second diamond in the repeat.

Comments: It's asymmetrical and I actually like it that way! (This is much to my surprise.) Finished/Blocked size 17 x 77 inches. It DID block out quite a bit. I will certainly consider this yarn for future projects. There is a slight halo to the yarn that is very attractive and the silk adds both sheen and strength.

Edit to add: funky 'art' shots of shawl with fall folige.
