My Clover Shawl

I recently finished knitting a V-Shaped version of the Clover Shawl by Natalie Servant using one skein of my Merino/Silk Fingering yarn in the Hostas colourway. My Mom kindly modeled the shawl for me in the pictures.

This shawl comes in three versions that you can knit: V-shaped, long rectangle (stole), and a large square. You start knitting in the middle of the 4 leaf clover motif in the round. You then knit Chart A and B still knitting in the round before deciding which shape you want. As I chose the V-shaped version, I then knit the garter borders on two sides, and then continued knitting on the two remaining sides separately knitting the final chart 16 times to form the two sides of the V. I ran slightly short of the yarn so I ended up kniting only 4 of 5 rows for the final garter borders on each side.

I blocked the shawl using 7 of my blocking wires. I did not severly block this shawl and I went more for width instead of length for the two sides. The final blocked measurements of this shawl are: total length is 33 inches from its tip in the back to the top of one of the sides, each side of the V is 20 inches long and 13 1/4 inches wide and the square at base of the V is 13 x 13 inches.
