Finished Project: City Shawl

My love affair with triangular shawls has officially begun. Using my Tilli Tomas yarn, I knitted the City Shawl by Stephanie Japel in mere hours. This is a super easy and versatile pattern that could work in any yarn, and looks fabulous. I predict many more in my future.

I was almost disappointed to finish knitting with this insanely squishy, beaded yarn.

Who knew a triangle could turn into a quick change artist? Oh yeah. Magda. It doesn't have to be worn like "Addie on the Prairie", as demonstrated here.

It can be worn backwards with the tails in the back.

Wrapped up like a kerchief, "Magda Style". (I promise, this will be my last reference to Miss Magda. A description using her name is essential here!)

Or even thrown over your body with the point across one of your shoulders.

I am a changed woman. From now on I will scoff at stoles and wraps! (wink)
