This is still sitting around waiting to be blocked, but I don’t feel as guilty as I might, because I’m still proud of myself for actually weaving in all those ends pretty much right away. About thirty-five of them.


So many ends. SO MANY ENDS. (And so much just back and forth plain knitting.) But once it’s blocked, I think it’ll be a really nice casual shawl.

The pattern is Pterotactyl, knit up in Cascade Heritage Solids. I wound up short on yarn and just did a few extra rows of purple after the last wedge, but I like the way it looks this way, too.

    It looks great! Totally worth all of those ends.

    You should look at a Russian join for stripes – no ends to weave in! It’s my new favourite thing 🙂

      The construction means you have to break the yarn every time you start a new wedge. Trust me, if there’d been a way around the ends, I would have done it.

        You can! I just made a stripy shawl with Russian joins 😀 Once you figure out how much yarn you need to leave for the join, it goes pretty smoothly. You just need to snip off a couple of ends (actually i didn’t even do that yet, since they are hidden by the edge rolling over)!

    Gorgeous! I haven’t seen that pattern before.

    I love my Pterodactyl. I wear it all the time as it’s a perfect size for wrapping myself up in. When it was cold I even wore it wrapped around my head and shoulders over the top of my coat. It was sooooo warm.

    Pretty! I like the color contrast.

    The ends are a pain but it does look like a great casual shawl!
