CTS is Finished!

And at 840 stitches around the outside edge, I thought I would NEVER finish that last round! Here it is, hot off the hook:


If you're wondering, the plant on the left is chocolate mint, the one on the right is catnip.


And here's a close up of one petal & the edging:


I am rather proud of the final result, and you can quote me on that!

Yay! You should be proud... it looks great!
Is this to be worn as a shawl? I can't quite tell the finished size. The open lace seems like it would be very fit flexible...

Hi Kathleen!

Thank you for the compliment! It is supposed to be 48" across but it's more like 60"! You fold the top edge down for a "collar" and wear like a circular shawl. If you scroll down to the post titled, "Yes, Another Shawl", there is a link to the book on Amazon, and it is the shawl on the front cover - you can get a pretty good idea of how she intended it to be worn from that...

Peace,
Liz
