Dragontail Shawl: Knit Picks Version

My Knit Picks version of the Dragontail shawl is made from their Cotlin yarn in Glacier. (70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen, Machine Wash, Tumble Dry Low)
It would be attractive made with smaller needles and a single strand of the cotton linen blend, but when using the larger needles I liked the fabric best when double stranded. It creates a substantial shawl but is not too warm for spring and summer evenings.
It is soft right off the needles, but I have a feeling this fabric will
become almost like velvet the more it is worn and washed.

I wore one of my gift shawls from you to the play at KCC last night and received many compliments. :-) thanks again for my loverly purples shiney shawlette. <3

on a difficulty scale of 1-10, where would you rate this pattern? For the average knitter, that is.... not for someone astounding like yourself. [[hugs]]
