Pattern: Landscape Shawl from Fiber Trends
Yarn: Ultra Alpaca by Berroco, colorway#6284, "Prune Mix"
Needles: 10.5 (mm) x 24" bamboo circular by Clover
Finished size: Really big (85" wide at the top x 40" long from center point to top edge- unblocked!!)
Modifications Improvements: You can knit this pattern in various weights of yarns for different finished sizes. I went with the worsted, but knit it using the numbers for the next finer yarn to get a larger shawl. I did bind it off with a size 13 needle to get a looser top edge/ I am going to think about binding off using an 11 for a bit more structure. (Although, its a miracle that its finally a FO, so I'm not hopeful for the deconstruction and reconstruction.)

Off the needles...for now!
