Knitting & Crocheting

Red beaded shawl

Finished another shawl! It took forever but it’s finally done. This was my second shawl knit with beads in it.

This pattern was from Knit with Beads: Stunning Shawls & Wraps, by Scarlet Taylor. The pattern is called Fireside Shawl. The yarn is Artful Yarns Portrait, and I used 6/0 seed beads. Here’s Megan, showing the shawl for scale.


The shawl is actually very simple — just knit in every row, with a yarn over on either end to increase. It took forever just because it was so big.


I love the variegated color of the yarn. It’s a very beautiful reddish color.


The only downside is that because it’s got mohair, viscose and polyester in the yarn is that it has a little bit of a scratchiness to it, but this shawl would be perfect for wearing over a long-sleeve shirt.

Now onto the never-ending list of other projects!
