Gorgeous greens and brilliant blues recreate this Our Planet Earth shawl, its hand-knit pattern depicting our wondrously lush green forests and deep blue oceans. What better reminder of the wonders of this world we live in, than wearing this warm and inviting hug from our nurturing planet.
Notes on Project
Knitting this pattern was much easier the third time around and I love the added on 3-stitch edging I did to help weight the top of the shawl. The gradient from Gobsmacked (formerly Gobstopper) Yarn couldn’t have been a better choice as the green gave way to the blue in the perfect spot. I love how this project turned out. I’m sorely tempted to order more in this very color scheme to make myself one just like it. Alas, it’s going off to some lucky lady as a holiday present.
