Say Yes! Yes!

Last night I finished this shawl.  It's the Yes Yes shawl from Caron.  You can find the pattern here.

At first I really needed to stick to the pattern.  But after row thirteen it's a four-row repeat.  It was easy to memorize the repeat and work without a pattern after that.

 One of the things I really like about this pattern is that it has a little texture.  One row of every repeat has a front post double crochet.  So that creates a little texture on each of the little fans.  

I used a sportweight acryllic, but this shawl would be beautiful in any weight or material.  It will definitely need blocking if you are using a natural fiber, however.

In the winter, I love having a shawl to wear as I would wear a scarf, this shawl would be perfect for that.  But I also love the open work for this time of year.  Spring in Central Pennsylvania can bet pretty cool.  The Yes, Yes shawl is great for a cool spring evening.

I did work a few more repeats than called for in the pattern and I finished the edge with single crochets.  Other than that, I just followed the pattern.  I'm happy with how it turned out.  What do you think?
