As of 03/13/2014 the pattern now includes 2 sizes (shawlette in lace and full-sized shawl in fingering) and complete written and charted instructions available as separate downloads!

This is the second in a series of adventure shawls made for my best friend Monika to chronicle our travels together. The Reyes de España Shawl captures our amazing trip together through southern Spain with three other friends. We lived like kings, eating jamon and manchego everyday and enjoying a pot of sangria every night while we watched the stars over the olive orchard.

The shawl has a unique construction that combines a circular shawl with a triangle shawl. The circular middle panel represents the beautiful geometric tiles at the Alhambra. The outer lace pattern mimics the skirts of the flamenco dancers on the streets of Sevilla during the Feria celebration. Although you may not have traveled with us, you can still enjoy this beautiful Spanish inspired adventure shawl.

For the LACE Shawlette, you will need 2 skeins of the listed lace weight yarn (shown in colorway Lilac) - about 880 yds, size US 6 (4.0mm) DPNs and 16 in (40cm) circular (optional) needles as well as 29”+ circulars to help support the weight.

For the FINGERING Full-sized Shawl, you will need 2 skeins of the listed fingering weight yarn (shown in colorway Gypsy for Stroll and Winter Night for Gloss) - about 924 yds, size US 8 (5.0mm) DPNs and 16 in (40cm) circular (optional) needles as well as 29”+ circulars to help support the weight

Both sizes also require: size 6 glass seed beads, a 1.00mm crochet hook to attach the beads, and rust proof pins for blocking.

This pattern is also available on the Knit Picks website, found HERE.
