Now that we are a month out from the end of the Mystery Shawl I think it's safe to show you finished photos of my shawl. Last month we had a contest and the pattern has a new name Portico.

Portico 7

I used Jade Sapphire Silk/Cashmere 2 Ply and made the small size. I think my colorway might be exclusive to Purl Soho, because I don't see it on the Jade Sapphire site. The pattern also gives instructions for a larger version, but be forewarned it uses a lot of yarn. You'll need almost double the amount of yarn for those last 40 rows.

Ooooh- it looks beautiful!

I LOVE this pattern!! I did the KAL, but so slowly it's embarrassing. I just blocked her last night, and she's gorgeous. Used an enormous amount of yarn. I used two full skeins of Malabrigo lace, with about 18 inches left over. So lovely, and thank you for designing it!
