About this Pattern
A night-time walk through a city during the holiday season is one of my favourite things to do. There is something so magical about holiday lights that glitter in the the shop windows and light up the streets. I love the surprise of turning a corner and getting my first glimpse of a big, sparkling tree standing in the centre of the square. The tree not only lights up the sky, it lights up my heart.
Sparkling Spruce was designed to capture that magic. The body of this top-down crescent shawl is worked in reverse stockinette, making this good social or TV knitting. Triangles of beaded lace are then worked along the bottom. . With a touch of ribbing and eyelets, stout trunks are added to the final rows, revealing that these triangles are indeed decorated trees.
A video tutorial on how to add beads with a crochet hook is provided in the pattern.
