About this Pattern
This large, yet soft and delicate, top-down triangular shawl is ideal for romantic dinners, evening strolls or just adding a touch of sparkle to the everyday. Streams of diamond lace cascade outward from the centre spine, ending in a splash of lace along the border. Beads in the centre of each motif twinkle in the light, like the glinting of the sea at sunset. Thanks to the simple and repetitive stitch pattern, the adventurous beginner will find this a great introduction to beaded lace, whilst the seasoned knitter will enjoy the easy-to-memorize pattern.
A video tutorial on how to work the Diamond Lace stitch pattern and add a bead to each centre is linked in the pattern. It also includes handy tips on how to read your lace stitches, so you can easily double check that your lace stitches are in the right place on each row.
A handy stitch count checklist is provided at the end of the pattern to help you keep track of your progress.
