I found a beautiful shawl called Damask on one of my favourite blogs, A passion for knitted Laces. It was one of a series of beautiful shawls designed by Kitman Figueroa. I immediately fell for this shawl, and I just had to make.
In the pattern, a smooth shiny yarn was used. However, I wanted a warm and fuzzy yarn, so I knitted the shawl in an alpaca yarn called Tynn Alpakka, from Du store Alpakka. It is a lovely yarn to knit, and it gives a very soft, warm and snug shawl.
The shawl is relatively easy to knit, much easier than it looks. Also, due to the thick yarn, it does not take a long time to finish. I truly recomend to try this pattern. It is not as hard as it looks, and the pattern is easy to follow.
My daughter, Elise, did not want to be a model for me this day, and it took a lot of persuation to get these pictures.
