Virgo Shawlette - Done

I finished this last night and blocked it before going to bed.  It is more of a scarf than a shawlette, but you could modify the pattern with fewer repeats of the Leaf Chart and deepen the short rows.  If I were going to do that, though, I would cast on and work the Leaf Chart, then pick up the stitches for the Oak Leaf Border, and then go back and pick up stitches along the cast on edge to work the short rows.  I would also play with the colors.

Here is the blocking shot (taken at night with the flash) so you can see the whole thing.  I had to curve it in order to pin out the Oak Leafs of the border.

Pattern:  Virgo Shawlette by Janine le Cras
Yarn:  The Unique Sheep Pashmi in Virgo
Needle:  US 4 (3.5 mm)
