Golden Ray Shawl

Decades ago I made a doily I called Golden Ray. I made it originally to see how easy it was to put bits of color into a doily. (I decided that was not worth the effort it took.)

A couple of years ago I decided to try to make a shawl using this doily as a beginning. It was the very first time I tried to make a circular shawl with a wedge removed from the circle. If I were to make it again, there are parts I would not make quite as full. The fullness makes it harder to see the net pattern. I would also use larger mesh sticks in some places.

When it was finally finished, it was more of a cape than a shawl on me.

However, I had a granddaughter who was about 18 months old the Christmas of 2015, and she loved it. So, I gave it to her and she still uses it.
