Dusky Bethuen Shawl Done

I finished the Bethuen Shawl (Oceanwinds Knits pattern). Still LOVE this pattern and will make another one when I find some yarn that will make more stripes and change colors. I like this Dream In Color yarn for vague changes – altho the second skein was so different in color, it had more browns in it (you can see in the picture the bottom edges are a little different. It’s dipped in chocolate!….or….I planned it that way ;)…the pattern has stripes anyway, right?…I just had a little yarn left, probably not enough to do another set of rows.

Notes: bottom of page 1, start doing 12 rows (12 plus 2 eyelet = 14) instead of 20. no yo’s on WS rows, none on second section of shawl
