This is the second in a series of adventure shawls made for my best friend Monika to chronicle our travels together. The Reyes de Espaa shawl captures our amazing trip together through southern Spain (for our maiden voyage, see the Monika First Adventure Shawl).
The shawl has a unique construction that combines a circular shawl with a triangle shawl. The circular middle panel represents the beautiful geometric tiles at the Alhambra. The outer lace pattern mimics the skirts of the flamenco dancers on the streets of Sevilla during the Feria celebration. Although you may not have travelled with us, you can still enjoy this beautiful Spanish inspired adventure shawl.
You will need 2 skeins of the listed lace weight yarn (shown in colorway Elderberry) - about 880 yds, size #6 (4.0mm) DPNs and 16 in (40cm) circular (optional) needles as well as 29"+ circulars to help support the weight, size 6 glass seed beads in clear, a 12/1.00mm crochet hook to attach the beads, and rust proof pins for blocking.

I taught myself to knit in 2005 and began designing in 2010. I love thinking up a shape or wacky concept and then figuring out how to make it into a functional, beautiful, three-dimensional object!
