Clara’s hat and shawl

Clara's shawl and hat 1

I chose these patterns to show off the beautiful new Clara Yarn, Cormo 3.0 – Sheep (bulky weight).  I used most of 3 skeins (120 yds/ea) on the shawl, and the fourth skein on the hat.

Shawl pattern:  Maya’s shawl, knit on US 10s

The shawl lace knit in this bulky weight yarn blocked out beautifully – it opened up but didn’t seem to grow much.  But warning:  the hat grew HUGE!  I mean, it must have doubled in size!  I had to throw it in the dryer for over half an hour, just to get it somewhere in the vicinity of the right size.  I was really bummed because it fit perfectly before blocking.  Had I to do it over again, I would not have blocked the hat – it looked just as beautiful pre-blocking.
