Stand back - its huge

I'm really pleased to report that the worsted version of my Fuss Free Festival Shawl is off the needles.

2 skeins of gorgeous, squishy Malabrigo Rios practically flew off the needles and I have to say that I'm really pleased with how it has turned out. It did grow - a lot - on blocking though and with hindsight I think 5mm needles (I used 5.5mm) would have been sufficient.

I will be updating the Ravelry page but for those of you assessing your stash or planning a purchase here are the basic details.

Yarn: 1.92g Malabrigo Rios worsted in Arco Iris. 369m (403yds)

Needles: 5.5mm circular 80cm length

Finished wingspan (relaxed) 70". Finished depth 15"

The result is a long, wrappable and super squishy shawl. Perfect for colder weather or as a light later in places where the air con is a little fierce. 

I will be updating the Ravelry pattern with the details over the weekend. Now is also a good time to mention that the Fuss Free Festival Shawl is free if you sign up to my email newsletter but this offer will be ending on May 8th. After this time it will revert to being a paid for pattern only.
