Here's another picture of my blocked swallowtail, with me holding it to give a sense of scale. I love it:

Here it is!

Swallowtail Shawl, part 2

I love Malabrigo!

I added a set of repeats (recommended here), but it's still teeny. I blocked it pretty vigorously, but it's still kinda small. I'm glad I added the repeats!

I love the yarn--it's Malabrigo laceweight. The color variations are really pretty.

How to make Swallowtail larger?

I've read that one has to do 19 repeats of the Budding lace chart to make Swallowtail larger. What else is involved? Anything with the border and edging?

Are there links to this information?
