Finished: Lace Shawl Temptress

Finally blocked. It’s beautiful!



Boo’s suggestion to use 6/0 size beads, one size larger than is usually recommended, is a good one. My shawl has sparkles of winter!

Imagine the bright days of winter, come January and February. Crisp skies, clear colours. I’ll be feeling like a light snowy queen, wearing this beauty.

It took 351 m of lace yarn on needles 3,75mm and about 275 beads. I learned to use big enough needles and block “thuggishly” to get that airy look at the border.
Here’s my projectpage.

I am going to knit this again! In a variant that has a solid body and that lovely lace pattern at the border.
