Geranium Petal Shawl

I love this little shawl. It is versatile and comfortable, and I have been wearing it with great joy. I've ordered more Suri yarn to make these as gifts, in lots of colors. I hope you will enjoy the pattern, too.
Geranium Petal Shawl  $4.00 US

Supplies: ½ inch gauge loom with at least 45 pegs [Sample used CinDwoods ½ inch gauge round loom with 66 pegs.]
2 skeins light weight alpaca blend yarn, about 300 yards [sample used 2 skeins Knit Picks Suri Dream Hand Dyed in Sherry.] Pattern notes: Karius and Baktus are two simple scarf or shawl forms that are made from side to side, starting at a narrow end and slowly increasing to a center point, which should also be the half-way point in your amount of yarn. The shawl then decreases gradually to reach the other end. The finished shawl or scarf can be worn in many ways, around the shoulders, around the neck, with the point to the front, back or side. The Suri Alpaca yarn gives this shawl a wonderful soft, cuddly feeling, but it is very light when being worn. The garter stitch rows create a very flexible piece of knitting.

Finished Size: 100 inches long, 2 inches wide at the ends, 16 inches wide at the center.
Update 2014: This pattern has been updated and now includes two versions, the original Geranium Petal Shawl, and a larger, full sized shawl version.
