I spent about a month knitting this shawl. I don't often pick patterns with an intricate design, but I really liked the look of it in the picture. I found the pattern at our local farmers market, and I was curious how different a British knitting pattern differed from an American pattern. While there were a few words phrases that were different, it wasn't very difficult to figure out what they meant.
I must admit that it turned out very nice. The pattern shows through nicely and it looks great on. This will help keep me warm in the winter when we walk down to the tube station.
