Here are pics of my two Alexandras, a shawlette size and another shawl size (I wanted to have complimentary colors for the pattern). I am on schedule to publish the pattern here in the classified section on Feb. 29, for those of you who have inquired and who have been "nudging" me to hurry on up about it!

For anyone interested in joining along in the new KAL for the shawl that is beginning March 1, I will be starting an Alexandria Shawl KAL topic in the main section.

There is a shawl size 34" x 68" (pictured in purple) and a smaller shawlette size 54" x 28" (pictured in green). The design of the beginning of the shawlette is slightly different than the shawl, in that there are no little diamonds at the top.

The shawl size takes about 650 yards of fingering weight yarn and the shawlette size squeezed in at 410 yards with very little left of my 420 yard skein. I used Madelinetosh Merino Light for all three shawls.

I will post more details regarding yarn choices and yardage requirements to achieve certain effects with the shawl on the initial post on the KAL topic.

are the instructions written and charted or charted only?

They are chart only, but with very large, easy to read charts that are fully explained. You can see what my charts look like if you download the free Ashton Shawlette from this site.

Yet another gorgeous shawl Dee. What size circular needles are required for your shawls, as I will have to purchase some, I have none at all yet. Leonora.

You can be a trendsetter!!! You can just bunch them around your neck like a scarf if you want since that is more casual.

Thanks! For these fingering weight shawls, I usually start with 24" US5 (3.75mm) circs and switch to 32" when it starts getting too big. I could just as well started with 32"s but since I have both.... And I use mostly US3s for my fine lace shawls, although will go to US4s with heavy lace weight yarn.
