Yarn: Meimei bamboo sportweight (about 3 skeins)
Needle: #5 (bamboo of course!)
Wow. I was shocked after casting off. It is so wide...my biggest shawl ever. I probably did not need the extra repeats, but I love the length.
I steam blocked with an iron just at the edges; the yarn has a nice heft and drape which helped open up the bud lace pattern naturally. I feared a hard block, it would become a bed spread!!
The chain style yarn has a nice sheen but it is a bit snaggy and super slippery.
If draped right, it can be a dressy cardigan.
I love it, but it seems too fancy for everyday wear. I'm predicting an upcoming date night with hubby :)
