orange crush

Pattern: Mara by Madeline Tosh, get it here.

Yarn: Peruvian Highland Silk, Colorway #1004 (Pumpkin)

Needles: US 7 / 4.5mm circular

This is a great pattern. It's fairly simple, so it makes for great television knitting. The body is garter (with some YOs thrown in for increases and there is ribbing on the edge. It's a good weight shawl and it has great drape (mine does--the silk content of the yarn helped with that). This is a pattern I would probably knit again; and, I don't generally care for knitting the same thing twice.
