Ludicrously large shawl

So, in 2 days I whipped up a shawl on the 20mm needles! It took 9 balls of Sirdar Faroe. I’m not at all sure how practical it’s going to be as it is enormous. Here is is stretched out on my sitting room floor!


As it’s impossible to get it all in, here are a couple of detail shots…



Needless to say I won’t be attempting to block it! I might get my sister (6ft2inches and slim) to model it later as it will look better than on me (just under 6ft and well built!). When I was practising with how I would wear it last night the spine reached the back of my knees! I don’t know how warm it will be either as the holes are HUGE! Oh well, it was a bit of fun and I enjoyed doing it. A perfect Christmas knit really!
