That 70s Shawl: The Second Movement

So, my original design went from this...


...to this...


This is what I was aiming for to begin with. I just didn't know it at the time!


 Big, bee-you-ti-ful 70's flowers encased in handy hexagon frames!



Thank you to my gorgeous offspring for modeling my newest creation. She's a doll!

Anyhow, I like this version of the shawl MUCH better than the first pass. I am especially fond of the overall shape of the wrap. It's difficult to tell in the pics above, but shaping looks like this:


This wrap looks just the way I had envisioned. So excited! Oh, I will be making this pattern available for sale both in my Etsy store and on Ravelry.

Happy Monday everyone!

Beautiful. Both are, but the second changes do make a differance.

I actually prefer the first shawl. Please may you publish that one on Etsy/Ravelry too?
