I started out intending to use the Indigo with the Clodagh but once I had the yarn realized that they didn't complement. So I ordered the Malachite and in the meantime cast on, intending to use the Clodagh as the main body. That didn't work either due to unattractive color pooling. So I ripped it out and cast on with the Malachite. I'm happy with the results. This shawl, a Kristin Hanley Cardozo design, called for DK weight, but I wanted something with more drape so I used Fingering Weight and knit the large version on a size 5 needle. It blocked out at 19" long and 44 inches wide. A perfect size for a neck scarf. I would knit this pattern again and in the right weight if I find the right colors.
