Another Narnia Shawl

Yup, I made another Narnia. This time I used DK weight yarn to knit Narnia. Since I got total 400 m and didn’t want to waste the yarn, I took a risk to add one more repeat to make the shawl bigger. Guess what? I run out of yarn! I didn’t have enough yarn to do the bind-off. I didn’t want to waste money to buy another skein just so I could use a few meter from it. So, I did some adjustment for the bind-off. Instead using 5-chain, I used only 4-chain, and during blocking, instead of putting the needles on the 2 middle loops, I only put 1 needle in 1 of those middle loops. I think I like the slightly curvy effect.

This time, I managed to get the beauty of this shawl perfectly.
