Stellaria: Evolution Revolution

Back in February I spied a crochet stitch I really liked a lot. I jotted down the basic directions, and after I finished a few prior yarny commitments I decided to see what I could do with it. The first week of April this happened:
After working on it for quite some time, it became obvious the length to width ratio was just too far off to make a good shawl. So (after 4 other attempts that did not get photographed) the pattern evolved to this:

Better, but the shoulders sloped distressingly. I started from scratch, re-drew the basic sketch, and Stellaria was born:

Yep, I think this one's a keeper.
Pattern to come sometime this month (after tech editing and another sample or two are completed).
