Rubeus Shawl pattern by Biscotte Yarns. I could not find the right beads for the final section so I did a few extra rows and then a three stitch I- cord bind off. If I was going to knit it again (not going to happen as I really don't care for the shawl or the yarn), I would do a four stitch bind off. Yarn is Biscotte Hagrid in colors shown on pattern. Pattern is free from Biscotte web site as well as Ravelry. Thanks for looking.

Thank you so much J-J. Foolish me, even though I knew the measurements , 90 cm X 115 cm, it's much smaller than I expected. I must admit the shape allows it to stay on the shoulder very well. I guess my real problem is the yarn which I found to be very splitty and when wet blocked it had an odor - but not of wet wool. It's not yet dry so be I've got my fingers crossed that I'll be happier with it in the morning. :XD:

Knitter's Pride Knit Blockers. I got some, but haven't finished my shawl yet to use them.

This is a great tool and so much easier and faster than T Pins. They are called Knitters Pride Knit Blockers. They are available at Amazon and Jimmy Beans Wool and many other knitting sites, around $25. Happy knitting. Grace
