Pattern Description:

Inspired by falling snowflakes and icicles hanging from roofs, this is an easy to knit lace shawlette in 2 sizes (the larger with a deeper border). An elongated shape which sits easily on the shoulders, with a simple pattern of snowflakes that descend into a flurry in the border where they become icicles. It is edged with beads with full instructions for first time beaders as well as a schematic & instructions to aid blocking.

The pattern is fully written as well as charted, has been tested and tech edited and would be suitable for the adventurous beginner to intermediate knitter.

Sue Lazenby on

I live in rural mid Wales in a small house, well insulated with yarn. When not compulsively knitting shawls, I can be found pottering in my garden and finding inspiration from the welsh countryside.
