Several times on vacation I have come across three-button cotton shawls. They always look so pretty, in various yummy colors and soft cotton. And each time I said the same thing we knitters always say, "I could make one of those."
Well, here is my beginning of that very piece. I chose a soft cotton that is wrapped with a thread to make it appear nubby; it gives the knitted stitches an irregular look, which I think I like. It's Classic Elite Yarn's Sprout--100% organic cotton in the Glacier colorway. It seems light for a bulky yarn, so I'm hoping that it will be comfortable to wear. It has one buttonhole with three buttons. But I haven't purchased the buttons yet. I'm thinking grey coconut buttons, which will be big and light.
Now, I must say that I have made only a few shawls but don't wear them very often. That's one reason I probably wouldn't make an intricately patterned lace shawl any time soon. My question is, have you made a shawl, and do you wear it often?
