FO: Manhattan Melodies

My dear Keith of Knits All Done sent me a gorgeous skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted in Midnight in Manhattan. It’s so soft and the blue is so deep and rich. I don’t usually do shawls but I loved the idea of having this around my neck (and I was burned out on cowls). I knit a garter stitch triangle until I was almost out and then ended with some feather and fan to give it a scalloped edge.


I loved it so much, I named it in an homage to my favorite Muppets movie and then made my mom one in Tosh Merino DK in Twig, a rich and multifaceted brown.


Just in time to hand it out at Amy Hendrix’ color theory class at StevenBe, I wrapped up the pattern last night. The folks in the shop got an exclusive release but I’ve got it up on Ravelry now!

Doing Keith proud, I wet blocked these masterfully. It’s the best way to get those scallops and to get the eyelets to open up.

Of course, Keith’s equipment is much more sophisticated than mine!

    Hmmm. Bought yarn on Sunday after the color workshop and picked up this pattern. Having trouble. How many stitches after picking up after the 6th row? 9?? The set up row uses 7. How do you get an even number of stitches on either side of the center stitch (the stitch between the markers???) when the set up row has uneven stitches on either side of the markers?

      I missed the very end of that set-up row. Thanks for catching that, Jill. It should read: sl1, k1, yo, k2, yo, pm, k1, pm, yo, k2, yo, k2. That’ll bring you up to 9. I’ll fix that right away!

    I have a questions about this row at the end:

    Garter stitch body:
    Row 1: Sl1, k1, yo, k to the last 3 sts (slipping markers when you come to them), yo, k2.

    If you k to the last 3 sts, then yo, should there not be 3 stitches left to do something with? I’m confused on this.
