Giant Luxury Shawl

A couple of Fridays ago I blogged about Pickles giant version of their Simple Luxury Shawl. I couldn’t resist casting it on and knit it up in a couple of days using 1.5 skeins of Maxima from Manos del Uruguay stranded with 1 skein of Shibui’s exquisite Silk Cloud which landed in store last week. Worked on 19.0 mm needles, it’s an understatement to say this was quick. And just like the original version, this shawl / wrap / scarf is soft, lofty, and wearable in multitude of ways. High impact without the heavy bulk. I envision several more of these in my future!
