I'm happy to finally be sharing the super-secret project I've been working on for the last month or so: a Pogona shawl. This guy is going to my best friend from college, O, and I can't wait to see what she's done with the yarn I sent her!
I really love the Pogona design; it's a very simple repeat of knits, purls, and increases that creates a simple yet intriguing shape. It's not quite a triangular shawl and not quite a scarf. The best part is that the pattern is easy to remember once you get started.
I loved this shawl when it came off of the needles (first photo) but it really popped after blocking (above). It just lays right now. This was my first Stephen West pattern and I'm happy to say that it did not disappoint. Beautiful design, simple pattern, lovely result--my favorite kind of knit.
