I made this shawl as a present for my wonderful friend Molly Swan-Sheeran (of celtic swan forge fame, go check out and a bunch of my friends asked for the pattern, so here it is... It was designed in 2009, but other than a KAL this pattern has never been available until now! :) The beads in this shawl are optional. It is written so you can put beads only in the edging, only in the border, only in the main body, or all over. It's totally up to you! Gauge is not horribly important in this project. This pattern is also a tutorial in how to make your shawls wider or narrower.. How to do the math in order to get exactly the shawl you want. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY basic lace knitting skills SUGGESTED YARN 820 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade Yarns Sateen

My username is goddessofwhimsy on Raverly and my website is I am a freelance designer for many years now. I have designed for Plymouth yarns, Koigu, The Alpaca yarn company, Darn Good Yarn and many more. My designs have been published in Vogue knitting. At the moment I am looking for a company to take me on as their in house designer. I would love to be part of a team. I still do freelance designing and even custom knitting through my newly established designing firm Slipknot designs. I no longer sell the rights to any of my designs. I have been taught to knit when I was 5 or six, by my Grandmother in Bavaria, where I was born and raised. I have knitted and crochet on and off throughout the years. At 24 I came to the States, met the most wonderful of all husbands and needed something to do when the kids would take naps and my husband was at work. I also lived right across the street from a shop that sold yarn and needles and other crafty things. One afternoon I went and got myself some cotton and a crochet hook and the rest is history! I want to give a thanks to my husband at this point, who has put up with my antics over the years and has been encouraging me and believing in me always! Thank you baby! I love you! And to my children: I think you are the most amazing little monkeys around and I would not want to be without any of you ever again!
