Even fairy queens need options in their wardrobes, and Titania has plenty of options.

Titania is based on a simple triangle. The triangle can be worked either 2, 3, or 4 times. The 4 triangle version can be worked either flat or in the round.

Sizing is completely customizable. The main lace chart (Chart C) can be repeated as many times as desired. The body of the shawl may also be worked in stockinette, and either switching to Chart C or the border chart when the stitch count allows. The minimum size is to work each chart one time (about 40 rows total). This will result in a very small shawl unless worked in a heavier yarn.

Needle size listed is for fingering weight. The larger needle is used for the border chart only. Yarns listed are fingering weight, if using a different yarn weight, please adjust needle size as appropriate.

It is not imperative that you get the gauge listed. Use a needle size that results in a fabric you like. Yardage amounts will vary depending on actual gauge and size of shawl. Yardage listed are general estimates only.

Size 6/0 beads are completely optional. If beading, the stitches to be beaded are shaded in yellow. Beads are placed on individual stitches after the stitch is worked using the crochet hook method. A crochet hook small enough to fit through the beads is needed.
