White Queen Stole
This shawl is inspired by the ethereal artwork created by frost and snow during winter and named for Jadis, the icy queen who ruled C. S. Lewis’s Narnia. The body of the wrap is a fairly simple geometric lace, which begins as nearly solid fabric in the center and becomes more open toward the borders as sparkly beads trickle in like ice shimmering in sunlight. The bottom edges feature more elaborate lace and numerous beads. The shawl is worked seamlessly from a provisional cast-on to both ends, which allows its size to be easily customized (450 glass seed beads size 8/0 3.1mm).
- The shawl begins with a provisional cast-on at the top of one of the deep borders, which is worked first. Live stitches are then picked up fromthe cast-on, and the center of the shawl is worked next (this is where the length of the piece can be customized), followed by the second border.
- Icicles chart shows odd-numbered right-side rows only; purl all wrongside rows.
