This is beyond compare!

Abbey Phelps of Blackberry Knits truly outdid herself on this one.

The Design

Here is what Abbey has to say:

"The Master himself was turning to his great gilded boat, hoping to row away in the confusion, and save himself." -J.R.R Tolkien-The Hobbit

Inspired by the Master of Laketown who enjoyed the finest trappings of wealth. this is a stunning opulent shawl with detailed lace and an elegant shape. Using the silk/wool blend Ling from The Unique Sheep and special beads you can indulge yourself!


Yarn and Colorway

Each kit will consist of one Gradiance set of Ling, four skeinettes to total roughly 1250 yards. Ling is a scrumptious 70% Superwash Extrafine Merino, 30% Cultivated Silk with lots of lustre.

The colorway is Prince John, a Gradiance with colors that go from a wonderfully vibrant gold, though the addition of deeper rich brown hues, and ends up with a delicious burgundy-fuchsia hue.



The beads originally used were Metallic Gold Iris in the size 8/0 size, an amazingly rich look. Your kit will include very similar ones. What is needed for this shawl is 1,600 beads; we'll include extra.


Note also 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 Abbey via her Ravelry web page.

Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that.

We also can email the pattern to you via email (just be aware that it is not automatic; I have to manually send it to you and I do that right before I ship your kit).

Just make sure that drop-down menu is set as you would like before you check out.

This is a true heirloom beauty; I am so ready to be invited to some Renaissance Balls, me thinks....
