It seems that lately I have a thing for shawls again. The Clothilde Shawl is a very nice, easy and interesting knit. The pattern has written instructions and charts and is much easier than one might think after the first sight. Mine is knitted with Rowan Cashcotton DK (in goose...a nice grey). I had this yarn in my stash for some time. It was nice to knit and is very soft but terrible shedding on my black clothes. I really hope this is getting better with time and wear.

I´ve used exctly 4 skeins and used 5.5mm circular needles (my new Latern moon harmony needles...I love them). the shawl turned out extra large and (I think) due to the cotton content in the yarn it didn´t really block well. But I love it anyway.

Pattern: Clothilde by Kristen Hanley Cardozo
Yarn: Rowan RYC Cashcotton dk in goose, 4 skeins
Needle: 5.5mm circular needle
