Inspired by Shakespeare’s Titania, Queen of the Faeries, Mistress of Mystery and Possessor of Beauty. Oh how I would love to be Titania! Spellbound captures the essence of this Faery Queen and her woodland world. The main body of the shawl is full of leafy crowns that lead the eye down to the sumptuous and decadent beaded border with dramatic points. Choose your colours and beads and you too can become totally spellbound! The shawl has been designed to be knit using Sweet Georgia Merino Silk Lace, Hedgehog Fibres Silk/Merino Lace or Skein Merino/Silk Lace, all 700m/100g.
I used 560m of Sweet Georgia Yarns Silk Merino Lace and approx 775 beads, the stocking stitch version uses an additional 80 beads. The size as written – 22 inches (56 cm) deep and 83 inches (211 cm) wide but this pattern is easily adaptable though yardage and bead requirements will increase should you increase the size.
The pattern is both written and fully charted with bead placement indicated throughout.
