Metropolitan Shawl Knitting Pattern for Sale

In certain angle, this pattern looks like 3D blocks to me. It reminds me of the buildings in the big cities, hence the name. This scarf begins with stitches cast on for the lace edge along the two lower sides, then stitches are decreased to produce a triangle shape.

FO: Metropolitan Shawl

I guess I have to make an official FO post about my Metropolitan shawl. To tell you the truth, I am not really love this shawl originally. I made with different yarn at first, with slightly different structure and didn't really like the result. So, I decided to remake with sock yarn. Since I didn't have any sock yarn in my stash, I bought from other people detash in Ravelry. I got the color that I like and the price is very good too. Only USD 19 including shipping from US to Malaysia. Good deal don't you think? And the yarn have a very good yardage too.

The result? I Love it!
