I wouldn’t usually swatch for a shawl, but I’m not using the weight in the pattern and I’ve never knit with this yarn before so I wanted to make sure I liked the gauge. It’s the tiniest swatch the world has ever seen, though! (On cable needle ends without a cable attached. Yup. That’s how I roll.)2
