Beetlebum is a semi-circular shawl designed to use a single skein of lace-weight yarn. With two easy-to-follow lace patterns, this shawl is a pleasure to knit--not too complicated and just interesting enough. The lace patterns form three distinct shapes that look to me like a beetle opening its wings.

Kits for Beetlebum with a skein of Julie Asselin’s beautiful Merletto will be available at the Unwind Brighton Shop from 22 December 2014.
