The shawl is knit all in garter stitch and shaped with short rows. YarnI used Regia Flower Power Sock yarn to get the nice fade in each of the triangles. You will need 2 colours of yarn that fade into each other nicely. Or you could use one ball of gradient Lace weight (using the same needles this would be looser). Or mini skeins… or leftovers…

There are lots of fun things going on, a little fading, lots of holes, a flirty fringe and lots of fun picking beads and things to put in the fringe. Something to evoke the Flower Child in all of us.

The shawl can be extended to as many triangles as you wish. With 2 balls of Regia Flower Power I comfortably achieved 9 triangles giving a shawl with a wingspan of 130cm (50 inches) and depth of 42cm (17 inches).

The fringe is the eye catcher. It is knit as you go and a photo tutorial shows you how to add beads. But don’t limit yourself to beads, add charms, shells, broken jewellery, anything you can put a hole in! Theme you shawl or build it of memories.

Don’t have a stash of beads to raid? Earthfaire have specially selected mixes that are perfect for this shawl.

I would like to thank Schachenmayr for yarn support for this pattern and LinaFin for tech editing.
