Pattern: Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West

I made this beautiful shawl for my fiance. I couldn't resist wearing it, I borrowed it when I went out for shopping yesterday. It's a very easy pattern, I made the same thing last year using Noro sock yarn.

I finally got to try out this pattern. The pattern is well written, and the chart is easy to follow. I was surprised how fast I knitted this shawl. It took me only three days, that's how much I took to finish the Boneyard Shawl.
I did an extra repeat of the body chart. It made the shawl bigger than the pattern, but I ended up running out of yarn when I got to the last few rows of the edge chart. I went back and started binding off after row 28 of the edge chart. It still looks beautiful, isn't it?
