Kiwi Green Triple Cross Stitch Shawl

As you can see this pattern came out very nicely even though I used a cotton/acrylic TLC yarn and the pattern called for a lace weight.  I made the shawl the same size as the pattern but reduced the number of rows across to accommodate the heavier yarn.  It is quite nice and the ruffled edging is lovely.  I'm sure this will be worn over summer dresses and with light weight slacks.  It would be the perfect beach coverup over a swimsuit even since it is cotton and acrylic and would be easy to dry.  I'll make this again.

Lovely. I can see it being worn to keep the chill off from the summer A/C. Can't wait to see the pattern.
