My test knit is complete! Ain’t it pretty??

Pattern: Monongahela mini-shawlette (not available to the public just yet)
Designer: Gabrielle Marsden (gobbism on Ravelry)
Yarn: Used about 243yds / 57g fingering weight superwash sock yarn (100% merino)
Gauge: approx 4 sts = 1″ using size 5 US (3.75 mm) needles
Blocked dimensions: From center neck to edge point: approx 11”
Width from one edge to the other: approx 30”

My mini-shawlette has 4 lacebands and starts off with 12 pattern repeats.

There’s nothing better than a design that uses less than one skein of 100g sock yarn. Perfect for those impulse sock yarn purchases! I blocked this sucker to within an inch of its life, and it looks like it will be a really nice sized shoulder shawlette.
