My sister married this May. I found a wonderful dress to wear at her wedding, but it really was a summerdress, so I had a good excuse to make a shawl! Unfortunately my timeplanning was not that good, so I didn´t finish in time... But I can still wear it and think of my sisters wedding!
I made this circleshaped shawl with a lovely skein of WhispyStar from the indie dyer Sternenstaub. It has 1200m/100g and I still have 20g left over! You can of course also use a lace yarn with 800m/100g, you will then need about 1100m.
There is an option to make a beaded shawl. To make a fully beaded version, you will need 836 beads. At the end of the pattern is a phototutorial how to place the beads on the stitches.
The pattern has charts and written instructions. It is quite simple to knit because of the small charts. On all unusual techniques are phototutorials at the end of the pattern.
