18 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in garter stitch
US 6 - 4.0 mm (US 2½ - 3.0 mm)
1155 - 1200 yards (1056 - 1097 m)
fingering version (lace version)
For my fingering version I used a US 7 needle to give the fabric a more drape, knowing that I would have more then enough yarn to allow for the different gauge. I used three skeins of out Comfort Sock base and the shawl is so soft and squishy. Click here for my project page.
The colourways that I used were: Fabulous (pink), Garden Party (white speckle), and Soot (the dark charcoal)
The project was great and I really enjoyed the relaxation of knitting all that garter stitch, mind you those rows near then end get super long. All in all it is a nice big cosy shawl and I look forward to wearing it this fall and winter.
At the moment this shawl is visiting the Yarnover Truck in California for a July Trunkshow. If you are able to make it out to see all our samples and yarn we would love to hear what you thought.
