Belarra Shawl from Twist Collective in Gemstone Silk 2/5


Author: Susanna IC
Wingspan 54" (137 cm) after blocking, Length at center 23" (58.5 cm).

Twist Collective's Belarra shawl design is inspired by the architectural qualities of ornamental grasses, which can grow to impressive sizes throughout the summer. The simple lace and cable pattern increases in size to mimic the growth of the grass stalks and ends in an elaborate border, reflecting not only the com- plex shapes of the seed heads, but also the sinuous movement of the grasses blowing in the wind.

The shawl is worked from the top, beginning with stockinette short rows for shaping, and working down to the lace border. Beads are added throughout for additional texture and a bit of sparkle.

Correct gauge is not critical for this shawl, but your final measurements and yardage requirement may vary if gauge is different.

Item Number: 1590006P.
Price: $10.00/ea.
