Difficulty: Recommended for experienced knitters. Two files are offered (in both English and Danish), one with charts only and one with both charts and written description.

Yarn: Zitron Filisilk (70% merino, 30% silk) 600 m (656 yards)/100 g. Pattern uses 3 colours. Large size 40 g MC (#3006 Latte) and 45 g each of CC1 (#3007 Chestnut) and CC2 (#3008 Chocolate) (or 125 g if using a single colour). Small size 25 g MC and 40 g each of CC1 and CC2 (or 100 g if using a single colour).
These are generous amounts, you have enough to make a gauge swatch.

Size: Large size 70x200 cm (27.6 x 78.7 inches). Small size 65x170 cm (25.6 x 66.9 inches). Measured after blocking. The shawl is very stretchy, so it grows shallower and longer with use.

Needles: US 4 (3,5 mm) circular needle or the needle you need to get gauge.

Gauge: 19 sts and 34 rows to 4’’x4’’ (10x10 cm) in st st relaxed after blocking. Keep in mind that using different yarn from the one used here will affect your gauge and thus the needed yardage and the final size of the shawl. Gauge is not important otherwise.

Other notions:.Stitch markers. Crochet hook or other gizmo for placing beads. If your beads are a little irregular, using a piece of bendable fishing line or the like is a practical solution.

Beads: Seed beads size 6/0 or 8/0. Shawl as shown uses 8/0 beads. Large size uses 738 beads, small size 646 beads.

Construction: The shawl is worked in one piece from the neck and out. The shawl is bound off using a simple knitted BO.

Sværhedsgrad: medium
