Loving it! Well done wipinsanity on writing instructions that work. I was sincerely worried having never knit on the bias before, but I followed your instructions and it works!

This is a great project if you are new to charts and lace. If you just follow her very specific directions to the letter and trust them, you can’t screw this up!

This project makes a great prayer shawl, if you’re into that sort of thing. The pattern repetition, plus the fact that its worked at angles, but turns out square… in any event, I’m making a second one as such.
