Late to the party! I don't even know which shawl it is.
Well I'm rather new here... can someone post a link to the shawl?
Or doyou have to buy a pattern? Thanks!

I don't know which shawl this is either. A quick Google (remembering to add "shawl" so as not to get stuff about E.B.White or Wilbur the pig) led me to http://www.kyarns.com/koigu-painters-palette-premium-merino-charlottes-web-shawl.html

Add a fourth latecomer. It's been waiting patiently in my basket for a good year now. Love the colors.

Yep Cindy, that's the shawl!

Victoise, you can see pictures of finished shawl here:

The pattern is sold by Koigu and I got mine from theknittingzone.com

I love the shawl done by Cosmicpluto (from the link above). It is done in black and really looks different done in a dark solid color. The pattern shows up much better.

I have all the ingredients for Charlotte's Web in my stash, too. It has been there a long time, because I bought everything when I was a newbie knitter and it was too daunting to take on back then. It still looks a bit difficult (I have never worked with a chart), but I think I may try it out soon. I like it in both the solid and variegated colors. The only problem with the variegated is deciding on the shades to use. It's difficult to envision what it will look like when it's finished.

You must be a fast knitter and pay attention. Each time I started Charlotte's web (did 3, the last one using zephyr, but used smaller needles than Cosmicpluto), I would mess up numerous times in the first 31 rows ~ even using my notes.

I even messed up when I was blocking the first shawl - the bottom tip of the shawl wasn't where I thought it was supposed to be so it wasn't laying flat.

Love to see a photo when you're finished!

I made mine in a solid color (a dark blue). I skipped the fringe. Not having to change colors, I only used 4 skeins of Koigu.
