wedding shawl swatch

Tada! Here is the completed blocked swatch for the Wedding Shawl:
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr, teal (lace weight/2ply merino tussah silk blend)
Needles: 6mm Options

I'm going to cast on for the actual project with 5.5mm needles as I think that will give a better fabric with the lace pattern a little more clear.

Have 101 stitches cast on the needles now, but not sure if will do 2 or 3 pattern repeats to get the desired width, so will have to double checkthe measurement first before i go any further!
