After finishing my variation of the Melon-Stitch-Shawl I had to wait some rainy days just to take this picture finally in the bright sunlight which makes the colours come out so summer and fruity.
7 balls of Venezia Color from Lang Yarns, shade 162, 50% mohair, 50% acrylic, 130m/50gr
5mm circular (1m)
approximately 2,30m long and 55cm wide
I worked garter stitch edges (7 stitches on both sides and 12 rows at the beginning and the end of the shawl).
In wrong side rows I worked the melon stitch completely by purling - instead of k2tog I worked p2tog.
It was a quick and easy knit at least because I made an easy border. But I am very happy with this simple outcome. The colours are so dominating that - to my taste - another border would not fit better. Nevertheless the shawl is really an eyecatcher, isn't it?
