The fragile beauty of ice crystals that form delicate yet complex shapes on frosty winter days inspires this shawl. Oslo Walk is worked in one piece starting with the cast on at the bottom edge of the beaded lace panels followed by easy short rows (no wraps) which shape its elongated crescent form (644 8/0 3.0mm seed beads).

This quick-to-knit shawl is really a cross between a shawl and a scarf and as such, it can be worn in many different ways. Any lace weight yarn will show off the beaded lace shapes well; however, silk yarn will create a more complete illusion of frost thanks to its shimmery quality.

The blocking schematic was left out of the magazine due to lack of space - it is included here for reference (see the bottom image on the left).
