This is a stunning beaded shawl design by Susanna IC .
Susanna created a gorgeous shawl, constructed form the top down, starting with short rows, and forming a graceful crescent shape. There is a deep border with beaded lace.
For the colorways for this kit Kelly (the awesome dyer) created a circle of colors. You can see the original circle in the second photo on this page. It is not laid out in a circular form but if you imagine 1 attaching to 12, you will see that the colors gradations gradually move into the next.
For this particular colorway that we have in stock here, Kelly took the half that has coppers and golds as she went around the circle.
Half a circle's worth (with these coppery golds into rose) was sent on to Susanna to "play" with (take a look at the second photo on this page as well as the others which show this rosy-golden beauty).
We named this colorway Treasure Chest.
One of my absolute favorite colorways.
Each set will have a total of roughly 600 yards dyed in your Gradiance choice, 6 skeinettes each.
The original one is dyed in Kiri.
Kiri is a 80% superwash merino/ 20% silk. It takes dyes beautifully, looks and feels awesome.
Each kit will include 6/0 beads -- at least 475 of them -- to make a wonderful addition to the whole. The original Treasure Chest was knit using Silver Lined Dark Topaz AB.
That doesn't mean we have to stick with those -- if you want another color of beads, let me know. Let me choose your beads for you unless you have strong feelings about what you want.
Plus Susanna pops in to our Ravelry forum as needed if anyone would like some help or just to talk about knitting this beauty. Which is a wonderful extra.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern.
I know some knitters prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Susanna via her Ravelry web page. If that is how you would like to go, then set the "Pattern" drop-down menu to "No Pattern Needed."
Alternatively, if you would prefer a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that and we'll get that to you in your kit.
We also can send the pattern to you via email and if you choose that option, I will send it to you just before shipping out your kit.
(Please note that this pattern is charted only.)
Make sure to set each of the drop-down menus before you check out.
This is truly beautiful.
