This project was completed in May, 2011.
Another lovely free pattern on Ravelry! This is called Dane Shawl.
It's supposed to be a shallow triangle, based on traditional Danish heart-shaped shawls. I blocked mine to more of a triangle and less of a heart shape.
I think every comment about this shawl in person has started with the colors. It's all in the yarn, Plymouth Zino. It's a sock yarn, but it's a fingering weight single (just one ply) and it just seemed like it really would work well as a triangular shawl.
Pattern: Dane Shawl by Jane Tanner (free)
Yarn: Plymouth Yarn Zino in color "8", all 436 yards of it
Needles: Size 6 (4.0mm) nickel-plated Knit Picks Options
Mods: I liked the written bind-off but ran out of yarn with about 3 inches to go. So I tinked back a bit and switched to a very loose regular old knit 1, pass old stitch over new stitch, repeat bind-off. I had enough yarn left from that to weave in as the tail, and that was that.
