Swallowtail Finished

I'm really pleased with it. I love it!!

And what a difference blocking makes! I'm so glad I invested in blocking wires although it still took me ages to get it all stretched out.

The colour is actually more pinky than the slightly orangey-red the photo shows. It's Handmaiden Seasilk colour Berry.

It's very beautiful! Did you add any repeats to make it larger or did you knit it just according to the pattern?

I love it! The blocking scares me -- I might try the wires, too.

Ooh, it is gorgeous!

Thank you - although I think it must be difficult to make a Swallowtail that isn't lovely!

I knitted it exactly as the pattern except for on the Budding Lace chart 2 where I did an extra repeat (6 rows) because I misread the pattern.
