Wintersweet is a delicate, lacy and beaded, top-down, crescent shaped shawl. The original shawl has been knit from one skein of Tussah Silk Lace (700m/100g) and includes just under 1100 Miyuki size 5 triangular beads giving it has an air of elegance and sophistication, a timeless feel making it suitable for any age. Of course, a different feel would result from a change in yarn to a linen or merino (though remember that yardage requirements and finished size will differ depending on chosen yarn).

PLEASE NOTE - A solid or semi solid yarn will suit this pattern much better than a variegated and if you are using a yarn of 600m/100g you might need more than 600m.

Knit from the top down you will need circular needles in sizes shown above or to create a pleasing fabric, a 1mm crochet hook or crotat hook to apply your beads, a darning needle to weave in your ends and blocking mats and pins. You will also find it useful to print your pattern on a colour printer.

The pattern is both written and fully charted with bead placement indicated throughout.
