Modification Monday: Echoing Laminaria



Original Pattern:  Laminaria

Knitter Extraordinaire: Anne-Lise (Ravelry ID)

Mods: This is a pattern mash up with another shawl, Echo Flowers.Project page with great details on the mods (including sttich counts!) can be found here.

What Makes This Awesome: Why knit separate shawls when you can incorporate the most-loved elements of two shawls into one? I love this take on the shawls- the body is Laminaria, then the edging is a an excerpt of the Echo Flowers border, and finished it off with the edging from Laminaria. The result is absolutely stunning!

I agree. That shawl is stunning. It's the sort of thing that I would keep on display. Such a soul satisfying thing to look at.
