Snowflakes & Icicles

Pattern Description:

IMPORTANT: There are changes to VAT legislation for digital sales in the EU as of 1/1/2015 which means VAT at the rate applicable to the country of purchase has to be added to the price. If nothing changes with the way Craftsy sells patterns by then, I'm sorry to say that I'll be withdrawing my patterns from sale at the end of 2014. Sorry to disappoint, but as a micro business, there is no other way unfortunately. My patterns will still be available on Ravelry, Loveknitting & Patternfish.

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.

There is pattern support on my Ravelry group here: as well as by email at

There is an open ended KAL for this pattern in my Ravelry group (see link at top of page).
