A Little Shoulder Shawl

I have long admired the Citron shawlette/scarf/shoulder shawl. What really sold me on knitting this was seeing my friend Joy's version.

As usual, the details:
  • Pattern: Citron by Hillary Smith Callis Smith, Knitty, Winter 2009
  • Yarn: Trekking XXL; 75 percent wool, 25 percent nylon; 459 yards/100 grams; color 418.
  • Needles: US5
  • Finished center back length:16 inches
I had enough yarn for only six rows of the final 12 rows for the ruffle, with about 30 inches of yarn left over. The shorter ruffle works for me.
