Tara Shawl Pattern #: 80977AD
Created By: Gladys Wray
Craft: knit
Materials: I used the Homespun Yarn color #412 Pearls. I do wish I had a close up of the finished project, the yarn is very beautiful shades of earth tones.
Pattern Source: lionbrand: Tara Shawl

The pattern says to cast on 60 stitches and knit every row until I reach 60 inches. the pattern says to buy 4 skeins and I assumed some of that was for making the fringe. I am only half way into the third skein.

So, I decided to measure this one. It measured 50 inches long, so I am only 10 inches shy of finishing it. I decided to try it on and realized 50 inches is plenty long enough for me. I am only 4'11' so 60 inches, plus the fringe, would look ridiculous on me. So I went ahead and knitted it off the needle. I was going to start making the fringe but decide to turn this into a shrug instead. So I seamed up the 2 arms, except the arms looked too wide (like bell bottom pants, LOL) so I gathered the material a little at the wrists to make them snugger. I will attach some photos my son took of me wearing it. I do think the sleeves are a bit puffy, but I actually like the look. I might try the next one by casting on less stitches until i get past the elbow (12 inches) and then start increasing into the full 60 stitches.
