Shawl hack

I started knitting Cladonia which I really liked in the designer's variation, but it reduced my yellow and grey to mush. So I went back and reworked the pattern, only using the lace border - but repeatedly, both in smaller parts and in full.

Now the yellow pops as it should! This is knit in Mal worsted and is So. Snuggly. And. Soft. I wear it as a scarf. :)

Folden in half to block (or wet stretch in muggle lingo). It is big! 

Unstretched and wrinkly, but shows the colour really well!
