Here's Terttu!

My saucy new Finnish friend wants to say hi:
Terttu - off-kilter

Terttu - macro

Terttu - finished

Terttu - worn as a shrug

I loved this pattern so very much. Lankakomero's site is mostly in Finnish, but the pattern does have clear English instructions on how to follow the charts. The big graphic pattern means it actually works with variegated yarn, which doesn't happen with too many lace patterns. This was one 475-yard skein of Ellen's Half-Pint Farm merino/tencel sock yarn; it yielded a shawl 44" wide. It's a nice over-the-shoulder shawl.
