Roman Holiday by Americo

This is a beautiful yarn, and a very simple pattern. I knit it up for one of my LYS, Unwind. A very simple stocking stitch shawl, in a wonderful yarn called Cotton Flame from Americo. The yarn is thick and thin, thus creating it's own pattern as you knit, and the finished scarf/shawl has a lovely drape and body. I knit the shawl on the LK150, and added the two rows of rib on either end by hand. I also created one row of purl stitch on either side to prevent rolling, by latching up the third stitch from the end. Approximately 600 rows took no time at all.
