Serpentina Shell is Finished

Katia Shell

This is the finished Katia Shell in green/gold Serpentina yarn. I think it turned out quite well, and it's very comfy. The yarn is a mostly cotton tape, and is almost dry feeling. The close-up below shows the ladder stripe which is made by unravelling the center knit stitch after you get to the shoulder bind-off row. I like the look of the increases and decreases alongside it. Here's a link to more shell photos.
