Moonflower is the first pattern of the Into the Night Collection. The collection is great value for money compared with buying the individual patterns, there will be six patterns with at least one pattern that is totally exclusive to the collection.
Moonflower is designed to be knit in a laceweight yarn, this pretty little shawl is lace from the very beginning. There are only a few beads in the main body that hover below the bottom of each flower. The centre stitch of the shawl is the point of symmetry with each side being a mirror image of the other until the border is reached and the beading and lace intensify for the beaded grand finale that is the border.
If you are using a skein with less than 750m/100g I would suggest having two skeins to be on the safe side as yardage requirements are very close.
Finished Measurements: The size as written using Greta and the Fibers Silk Me Lace – 21 inches (53.5 cm) deep and 87 inches (221 cm) wide after thuggish blocking.
You will also need: Stitch Markers (two that are different to mark the centre stitch), Needle (for weaving in ends), Blocking Pins and Mats, just under 1000 Miyuki, Matsuno or Toho Size 6 Seed Beads or Miyuki Size 5 triangles and a 1mm cro-tat hook to apply your beads (or dental floss, 0.6mm crochet hook, fleegle beader).
You will find it useful to print your pattern on a colour printer or colour your bead placement in coloured pencils.
This pattern is charted and has full written instructions.
All patterning is on the right side rows only with all wrong side rows being purled.
PLEASE NOTE - If using a Yarn with less than 750m/100g it will be useful to have an additional skein as yardage requirements were close for a couple of Test Knitters.
