Showstopper Shawl - Kit

Be showstopping! This peacock-inspired shawl is the ultimate statement piece, and an instant heirloom. Designed for wearability, the more-than-half-pi shape sits beautifully on the shoulders (no shawl pin required!) and provides ample coverage for ladies of all sizes.

This design features an engaging mix of lace patterns and two different colors of beads. The heavy beading and complex lower border make this pattern a bit challenging; it’s best suited for knitters with lace knitting experience. Please note that this pattern is charted only, there are no written instructions for the lace patterns.

Other materials and notions needed (not included in kit):

  • Size 8/0 beads in 2 colors; 980 beads in Main Color (MC, shown in blue), and 388 beads in Contrasting Color (CC, shown in gold)
  • Small crochet hook or beading hook (for adding beads)
  • US #4 (3.5 mm) circular needles, or size to obtain gauge. Sharp needles are preferable, as they will make it easier to work the row following an increase row.
