I’ve always loved landscapes covered in a luscious blanket of snow, all tranquil and silent, enjoying that certain crispness and purity of air that just does not exist at any other season. And then there are the colors… What at first always seems like a simple all-white palette, under a close observation crystalizes into a myriad of shades of subtly nuanced blues and teals.

Icedawn is my classic short row crescent shawl, worked from the top in one piece. It starts with a delicate lace along the top edge and then it’s shaped into an elegant crescent with easy stockinette stitch short rows. The deep dramatic lace border is worked last with the bind off creating the intricate openwork edge.

I designed the lace border as a reflection of the many different images of winter - glacier ice melting into the sea, fresh snow blown by winds into meandering lines, water droplets glittering at the ends of icicles… And since no image of winter is complete without icy sparkle, I added shimmery beads throughout the lace borders (approx. 675 6/0 4.00mm seed beads, optional).
