I just finished my first shawlette - I am kind of obsessed with semi-circle shawlettes now....they can be worn over your shoulders or as a nice scarf! I used The Yarniad's Rioja Pattern (here are two pics from the pattern).
Here is my version. I used a lace weight yarn instead of a fingering weight yarn because it is what I had around. Mine may not be quite as big but that could be because I didn't stretch it enough when I blocked it. This HAS to be blocked (it was tiny before blocking).
I was originally planning on giving this away as a Christmas gift but I kind of LOVE it so I can't decide if I should knit another one for myself or just keep this one.
