We are very much a 'glass half-full' family and always called the shafts of light through dark clouds 'Angel’s Fingers' or 'Rainshine'. The ultra-dramatic points on the edges of the shawl, glistening with beads, remind me of those Angel’s Fingers, shining and reaching towards the ground. This little crescent shaped shawl has been designed to be knit in laceweight yarn giving you a fine and open lace with beads that float in the fabric like little raindrops. It could also be knit in fingering weight but a less lacy effect will be produced. With a stocking stitch body and repeatable lace section you have the versatility to be able to knit your shawl to a size and combination that suits you. The shawl shown was knit as directed in this pattern and was blocked aggressively. There is the ability to enlarge/reduce the size of your shawl (these are suggested throughout the pattern), an optional two extra rows for added drama.
This pattern includes both a chart and written instructions.
