Christmas Kerchief

Armed with a Christmas gift card from my son, I picked up this yarn at "A Stitch in Time" in Bethel, Connecticut.  I instantly fell in love with a display of this pattern in the store.  I had seen the pattern here on ravelry, but a heaver weight of yarn was used. 

The pattern, called for Size 6 (4mm needles) was very easy to follow and was a quick project to knit up.  The Boboli Lace is a light weight, slightly under-spun yarn.  It give the perfect texture and fabric for the shawlette/scarf.  You do, however, need to be careful with dropped stitches.

I was a little discouraged with the finished size, but I was able to block it out to the proper size with my new blocking mats.  I was delighted to see how far the kerchief stretched out.

This is the perfect project for a quick knit gift and I can see making it again and again.
