A new design by Lily Go, Bridge To Terabithia is a strikingly lovely beaded shawl that will delight and inspire you!
Here is what Lily writes:
Bridge to Terabithia is a crescent shaped shawl worked from the bottom up.
The shawl's generous length is perfect for many styling options.
This shawl is designed to be knit in fingering or heavy fingering yarns adorned with beads (if beads are not for you, then you can omit them all together).
The pattern is worked on the both the wrong and right sides. Pattern includes charts and written directions. I also include instructions on where to place the beads.
The Yarn and Colorways
Our yarn is not the same as what Lily used in her original. You can see ours in the inset photos on the top picture and again below that.
The yarn we have is from Trensdetter Yarns and is called Paradigm, made up of 95% Merino +5% Poly Metallic. Each pre-wound cake of 150 grams will give you +/- 660 yards. The soft metallic threads catch the light beautifully and have a silver tone to them.
It is what could be called a heavy fingering weight or a sport weight yarn.
One cake will give you enough yardage to be able to make the second size that Lily lists on the pattern (with a good amount extra for safety), allowing for a wingspan of 73" and a depth of 15".
We have two colorways you can choose between.
1. Pink Pansy will look lovely in this shawl as the colors range from a raspberry into pink into baby blue and then a bit deeper blue. (Sorry, sold out.)
2. irish Meadow is also quite a beauty. It starts with a lovely spring green and gradually changes into a sky blue and then a peachy pink.
Though beads are optional, each kit will include a minimum of 306 size 6/0 beads which is what is needed for this size.
If you have an idea of what color bead you'd like, tell me. Otherwise I will choose for you.
Note that the kit will not automatically include the pattern (the cost of the pattern has not been added).
I know some knitters will prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Lily via her Ravelry web page. This will save it in your Ravelry library and ensure you get any needed updates as they are released. If you decide on this option, make sure the drop-down menu is set to "No Pattern Needed."
Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy, then the "Pattern" drop-down menu should be 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 generally do that right before I ship).
