Construction: The shawl is worked in one piece from the center (neck) and out. The main body has alternating shell and v-shape rows with a cluster insertion. It can very easily be worked smaller or larger than shown (instructions for making changes are included). Two rows can be beaded (optional).

Difficulty: Adventurous beginner. Both charts and written pattern included.

Yarn: Vivid Fiber Arts Lux High Twist Tencel, 100% Tencel, 693 yards (634 m)/150 g. Shawl as shown used 167 g in all using hook 3 mm. One whole skein and part of a solid dark colour end skein is needed to work shawl as shown.

You will be able to work this using less yarn if you work less repeats of the final rows before the edge. If substituting yarn, go for fingering, light fingering or heavy lace weight yarn with some body and a little shine to it.

The colourway shown is called Emerald Island and was an advance release skein of that colourway. It will be available soon. Info on the yarn can be found on Vivid Fiber Arts homepage.

Hook: 3 mm, US C or D, or the hook size which gives you a fabric you like.

Size and shape: Heart shaped/deep triangle. 19 ¾ inches (50 cm) deep and 47.5 inches (120 cm) wingspan as shown.

Beads: 323 size 6/0 seed beads or the size you find suitable for your yarn. Beads can be left out! You can also use large drop beads. If you change the size of the shawl, you will change the number of beads needed too.
