Show and Tell: Like Buttah!

Julie (passioknits on Rav) knit a Cinnamon Toast shawl out of 3 skeins of Lotus Mimi (held double). She called it "Like Buttah!" on Ravelry, if you're looking for it.

This is what she had to say about it:

I LOVED this pattern, but I love doesn’t even begin to measure how much I adore this yarn! It is exquisite! I knew when I felt it that I wanted it to be something I would wear as close to my skin as possible, and that I would probably double it to get more cush out of it. I’m glad I did, because it is the softest thing I’ve ever felt! And ultra warm and cozy!

The pattern was a nice change from all the lace I usually do. I definitely recommend putting a marker on the public side so that you always know what you’re doing, because it quickly gets hard to tell which side is which. I love the simple beauty of the pattern and enjoyed making the triangles and diamonds appear with just some knit and purl stitches. It has a nice thickness and beautiful drape, and the ruffly bottom is so lovely and feminine! I will probably make another one (or more) of these, and I highly recommend both the pattern and the yarn.
