Trish, your shawl is lovely and very inspiring! This pattern has been on my wish list for awhile.

I noticed that the pattern calls for heavy worsted -- would you say that yours is a similar weight? How about others? Have you used lighter weights? Thanks!


Thanks! I used sportweight because, well, that's what I prefer. I used 4 balls of Utopia for the garter stitch base and 1 ball for the edging. I think it has good drape because of the lighter weight yarn. This pattern is great for substituting yarns.
