I finished this last week for a prayer shawl, and I just love the pattern! It was for a smaller woman, so it was the perfect size - and wouldn't have been to small for a larger woman either! But next time I knit it, I think I'll make it wider, and use three skeins of Homespun. I wasn't sure how the shaping would work out, but I just kept following the pattern and it worked out fine!! Thanks, Lion Brand; this one's a keeper!!
