Product details

Channel the glamour of the 1920s with this beaded lace shawl.

Named after “the first American flapper”, Zelda Fitzgerald, Zelda is a triangular shawl with a simple beaded body flowing into a heavily beaded, Art Deco inspired lace edging. Choose a strong contrast between beads and yarn for the dramatic flapper look or go subtle for a pretty English Rose style.

Zelda can be worked in two sizes:

Small size
Yarn requirements: 400m (440yds) laceweight yarn
Large size
Yarn requirements: 600m (660yds) laceweight yarn

Pattern includes charts and written instructions; shawl can be worked from either. Beads are pre threaded for the main body, then applied with a crochet hook for the edging; more information on both of these techniques is included in the pattern.

Zelda has been fully tech edited and test knitted. I am very grateful to my wonderful test knitters Rachel Beckett and Kate Elllis, and my tech editor Rachel Atkinson.
