Pattern Description:

A shawl to symbolize snow fall. It starters in clear weather and then the snow starts to fall until you can see the snowflakes and the first icicles begin to form.
The shawl is inspired by the germanic fairy tail Frau Holle who with her household chores is responsible for the weather and when shaking the bed the feathers fly and become snow on earth.
The other inspiration is my friend Juliane who is addicted to lace knitting.

The small version uses 420 beads and 1050 yards (960m).
The large one 580 beads and 1260 yards (1152m).

This is charted ONLY, if oyu need a version with wirtten instruction send me an email.
