Chroma Lollipop Haruni Shawl

You may recall that I purchased some Knit Picks Chroma yarn in Lollipop to make a Haruni shawl. Well here it is!

I got the idea to use the yarn for this pattern after seeing one created by a Ravelry user. It’s a fantastic way to take advantage of the gradually transitioning colors – just look at the neat ripples it makes on the edging!

I had a lot of trouble keeping my center stitches even in this pattern. I thought it might just be because of the varying thicknesses found in the yarn, but I had the same problem with the one I made with my Comfy yarn.

There are two edging options for this project – a crocheted edging and a knit I-cord edging. For the sake of trying something new, I went with the I-cord edging. Now that I’m done, I think I would have preferred the daintier crocheted edging option. Oh well – now I know! Practice makes perfect, and I still need a lot of practice. 🙂
