This little crescent shaped shawl has been designed to be knit in laceweight yarn giving you a fine and open lace with beads that float in the fabric like ice crystals. The lace pattern and shape of the shawl reminds me of when my children were small and we used to make angels in the snow. Okay, maybe we still do it but I guess you could keep my secret!

The shawl could also be knit in fingering weight but a less lacy effect will be produced.

Knit from the top down, with an adjustable stocking stitch body before lace section you have the versatility to be able to knit your shawl to a size that suits you. The shawl shown was knit as directed in this pattern and was blocked like a demon - a gentler blocking will produce a more gentle effect.

This pattern contains charts and also full written instructions. The beading is, as always, optional.
