Knitting pattern shawl, wrap, laceshawl Galadriel


    This wonderful shawl is dedicated to the most beautiful of all elves in Tolkiens „Lord Of The Rings“, Galadriel.

    It is a rectangular shawl knit from a central provisional cast-on to both directions. The shawl is topped off with a wonderful leaf-edging. Little integrated beads at the ends are a special highlight.

    Knit this amazing shawl in an ivory color and it can be the highlight to a wedding dress, or in an elegant black or burgundy the perfect eye-catching accessory to an evening dress. The used yarn is 3-ply, though lace-weight or fingering-weight yarns are also possible. I would advise against using anything thicker than 4-ply because it could destroy the light and lofty effect of the pattern

    The finished size is approx. 185 x 60 cm, the yardage is approx 726 meters.

    The pattern contains no complicated stitches, but I assume the basics of knitting techniques. You need a provisional cast-on, which is explained in the pattern. Inserting beads is explained as well.
