FO: Seriously Simple Shawl (Less Dressy Green Version)

I love the way the last Seriously Simple shawl looked, and I decided that I had to make another one. As is normally the case, it was a little easier to knit this pattern a second time, because I knew exactly where I would have issues and figured out how to make things easier (for example, it's worth it to have stitch markers marking off every repeat. Even if that means 32 stitch markers are in the shawl). This one felt like it went a lot faster.

The yarn looked a little bit bluer on the website, but that's okay! This color matches the green stripes in one of my dresses perfectly.

Pattern: Seriously Simple Shawl

Yarn: Jojoland Melody

Colorway: Greenish-Blue (that's not the name of the colorway- the name is a lot of numbers. It's my description).

Needles: Size 6

Made For: Me

The Verdict: I love it. It's lacy, yet solid enough to keep my shoulders and back warm. The yarn wasn't quite as soft as I would have liked, but it's also really reasonably priced, and it's not unsoft, either. It feels like it will hold up very well.


  1. This looks lovely! I love the yarn. Very well done!

  2. Wow! You have been knitting up a storm. Where have I been? I love *everything* on this page - especially this shawl and the purse you made for your swap partner.

    So glad to read your take on the Noro yarn. I'm not a fan of weaving in *extra* ends, either. ;-) I've heard so much about Noro, but have hesitated to try it because of the price.
