**Creatrix** was a Mystery KAL in Spring of 2017, it is now available as “regular” shawl pattern!

Creatrix, like many of Laura’s patterns, starts in a simple but unusual way. It is worked from the center out using Judy’s Magic Cast On.

After a few garter stitch rows, eyelet sections are worked from the center out to create the top of the shawl.

Then stitches are picked up along the edges of this central motif and the rest of the shawl is worked down from here.

Sections of the shawl incorporate Shetland Lace with beads. (Beads are always optional!)

Finally a Beaded Bind Off is worked… there are two options for this bind off, a Picot bind off and a Beaded Lace bind off, you choose which you love more!

You will need approx. 820 yds 750 m of light fingering weight yarn
This should be around 500-550 yards/100 grams

Optional Beads
Approx. 65 grams Size 8/0 glass seed beads (A)
Dental Floss threader (for stringing beads)

Approx. 19 grams Size 6/0 glass seed beads (B)
Super floss, .75-1mm steel crochet hook or a Beadle Needle (for placing beads)
