The character of Beatrice de Clerval from Elizabeth Kostova’s novel, The Swan Thieves, inspired this shawl. Beatrice is a half-circle shawl worked top-down in garter stitch with alternating colors and concluding in a simple lace pattern. It is designed to reflect Beatrice’s delicate but resilient grace.
Beatrice was written for two different colors of yarn. You will need a whole skein (420 yds) of the main color (sand in the sample) and a bit more than half a skein (~250 yds) of the secondary color.
The shawl can be made smaller or larger by increasing or decreasing the number of repeats of a section.
