Pattern: Bǎoshí

So, it’s time for a new pattern!  Again, all photos taken by Rebecca.  She did an awesome job.  (By the way, this is number 6!!!  Hurray!  I reached my goal!)Bǎoshí means “precious stone” in Chinese, a fitting name for the diamond-like lace pattern.  This shawl is worked from the bottom up, making it easily customizable to any size you prefer.Yes, it really is that huge.  I worked it in a little over a skein, too.

Here are some detail shots:

What I love about the lace pattern is the movement.  I know it doesn’t look like it, but the decreases move stitches back and forth.

Here I hitched the shawl up higher, and it looks really nice as a small shawl.

As always, there are written and charted directions, plus information on how to get the most out of one skein.
