The Squall Line Shawl is a cuddly oversized shawl incorporating the Wind-and-Shore stitch pattern (from the book) as a knitted-on edging. On this one, I explored how a heavier-weight yarn changes the nature of a lace stitch. The center triangle uses a lace pattern worked on both the front and back sides, but combining this potentially difficult patterning with a heavier yarn makes the stitch just fly off the needles.

- Great pattern, but not Romi's usual pattern work
The shawl is lovely, and I can't wait to knit it. However, I was very disappointed to find that it was not as written by Romi but rather by Interweave tech writers. I understand that you couldn't necessarily publish it in the magazine in Romi's complete style, but when one purchases it separately, I expected it to be more like what I'm accustomed to seeing from her.
The design of the shawl was done by Romi Hill. With all publishing there is an editing process by the technical editors to ensure the pattern is correct, and to word it in such a way that it is easy to read and follow. (Posted on 8/23/2016)
- I have not begun to knit this yet but I purchased the kit and SO EXCITED with the yarn, it fells great and I love the color. I like the size of this shawl and it looks like it will be an interesting, fun knit. (Posted on 2/25/2016)
