CHRISTMAS SALE ITEM DEC 1 - 31 2009 - ON WEBSITE & AT KNITTY NODDY ONLY

charted pattern; advanced intermediate level

pattern calls for 3000 size 8 seed beads & 34 12mm accent beads (optional)

Here is a link for the accent beads I used:

leaf beads

Full sized shawl features a wavy pattern reminiscent of Chrysanthemum flowers, divided by panels of wine glass lace, and edged in an open section that mimics the rounded lines of the waves and segues into a larger leafy pattern with ribbed points.

Mums are thought by the Chinese to grant longevity and strength. Don’t know about that, but I do agree with the Japanese who celebrate a festival of happiness to commemorate the flower.

May the pattern bring happiness to both the knitter in the making of it and the recipient in the wearing of it!
