Dotted Rays

When I first saw Stephen West’s patterns in Ravelry, I was in love. I loved the colors used in his works and the photos were awesome. I came across this beautiful shawl, Dotted Rays, which looked really simple but had that little something to make it interesting.

Since I haven’t knit much else than socks and couple of sweaters, I wanted to do something simple with simple stitches. I haven’t been that good in following instructions on knitting. so I decided to take this one a challenge, to make it by following the pattern and not soloing it by myself without actually reading what is said…

And it became really beautiful! It is huge, but I love it, since I can already imagine how nice it is to wrap it around myself during winter.

I used Finnish yarn called Tukuwool Fingering in three different colors. They are dyed on grey base yarn, which gives nice tone to the colors.
