First frost – all is quiet and still, few early snowflakes drift through the chilled air, and everywhere you look the edges of leaves and grasses are etched in silvery white frozen lace. Helada takes its inspiration from this unique and special time when nature transforms into an ethereal fairyland.

The shawl is worked from the center down to the edges; its body is a simple lace reminiscent of snowflakes and its deep borders feature intricate leaves. Shimmering crystal beads trickle down the lace and outline the leaf shapes along the edges, mimicking nature’s beautiful frozen artwork (500 3.1 mm 8/0 glass seed beads, optional).
