Glittering Path is a celebration of the little treasures that cross our path every day. Worked over 3 panels this semi-circular shawl combines a relaxing stroll through stockinette side sections with a wide, glittering path of lace and beads trailing down to the border in the centre section. Complementary lace patterns ramble alongside the main lace motif, and all three sections lead to a sparkling destination along the border of the shawl.

This shawl is best worked in a smooth and luxurious fingering weight yarn (perhaps, with a little silken sheen)
