Den-M-Nit Pure Indigo Cotton 50g (1.75 oz) ball 1109, Mid Indigo, L16205 7
I happened to run in to the sales slip for my shawl contest yarn the other day. Just looking at it, I thought "Christ, were you nuts? Your yarn came in three weeks before the deadline!" Eh, well whiskey-tango-foxtrot (WTF) you gotta take a chance once in a while. If I had told myself I wouldn't get it done, I wouldn't have. But I did. The name is a mish-mash of two cultures-an obi is a large Japanese sash used to bind a kimono. A toga....well, let's just say that my best toga party look ever had a belted toga. I looked like Diana, not like a six year old playing a Roman centurion.

Pattern notes-this pattern is short-I am a short woman. If you are taller than 5'4" & size 12, it will fit you as a shawlette, so plan accordingly. I specifically put in eyelets to allow the wearer to belt it. I cast off at 7:30 the evening of the deadline, so I had no opportunity to test this. I feel it should be a little longer on me. Other pattern notes-I wrote a sucky pattern. Sorry, it's the truth. I was too sick of the project to rewrite it. The instructions are very detailed, and that hurt me.

Obitoga-This pattern starts with scalloped edging, spreads into garter panels punctuated by eyelet rows, and finishes with an easy lace edging. The large eyelets allow the wearer to weave a ribbon, belt, or I-cord, and fasten the shawl around her waist, so it’s not floppy-sloppy.

Another Shawl pattern for the colection I will have such fun with this, thanks for sharing Bets, it was always so nice to see the picture but I didn't know where the pattern was NOW I understand, having been on the same end with the Hat!!!

Anonymous said...

Thanks for sharing, Bets. I think it is a gorgeous shawl and it will be added to my ever growing list of future projects. I'm curious--is the yarn difficult to work with? Is it similar to Sonata? BTW, I couldn't access the 1/15/06 archive picture--(dial up, y'know.)What was the picture that had you grinning?

jayne said...

Yes, I'm wondering the same thing as Kelly. My computer refused to load the page. Well...not in under an hour anyway.

Thanks for the shawl pattern -- what a load of work to write up it must have been. Credit to you for all the hard work you put in. I think I would have balked at that part.

Sept 15, Kelly? It was just the blue Katrina. You saw the finished top, so it's no big deal.

I'm so glad you were finally prodded into sharing that pattern with us. I love it and will put it high on my ...someday list. I looked for 1/15/06 too, thought you were referring to a crocheted bolero with Barbie yarn, picture in archives, and didn't get it.NOW i get it.hmmm. Daryl

Vamanta said...

Really fabulous shawl, bets. Can you snap a close up pic for the hard of seeing?

benne said...

Bets, it's a beautiful shawl. That pattern writing is a real pain. Thanks for posting the pattern. Betsy shawls will be everywhere!
