Here’s my “Wine and Crystal” Aeolian – finally finished!!
I love this pattern so much, I knit it twice! I’m even thinking of doing it a third time, that’s how much I love it!
Here’s the details:
Pattern: Aeolian Shawl from Knitty
Yarn: Knit Picks Gloss Lace in color Port (I used 2.5 skeins – 1100 yards)
Beads: size 8 transparent clear rainbow beads by Dyna-Mites (I used a little over two boxes)
Started: May 10, 2009
Finished: September 25, 2009
Size after Blocking: 45 inches wide, 36 inches tall, 65 inch wingspan
Modifications: None. I made the large shawl size following the pattern as written. I did 9 stitch nupps. It turned out a very generous size that will be perfect for wrapping around myself and looking glamorous in red. 😉
(Close up detail of the beads. They sparkle nicely in the light.)
Happy Knitting everyone!!
