The Beatrice Shawl

About two months ago, I released the first of my five patterns inspired by Elizabeth Kostova’s The Swan Thieves: A Novel. Today, I am releasing the second pattern of that set, Beatrice. IMG_1648 IMG_1649 The character of Beatrice de Clerval from Elizabeth Kostova’s novel, The Swan Thieves, inspired this shawl. Beatrice is a half-circle shawl worked top-down in garter stitch with alternating colors and concluding in a simple lace pattern. It is designed to reflect Beatrice’s delicate but resilient grace.IMG_1652 IMG_1653 IMG_1656 IMG_1657 IMG_1663 IMG_1664 IMG_1667 IMG_1668 IMG_1669 IMG_1670

Beatrice was written for two different colors of yarn. I used Tanis Fiber Arts blue label fingering weight for the sample. You will need a whole skein (420 yds) of the main color (sand in the sample) and a bit more than half a skein (~250 yds) of the secondary color.
