By Anne-Lise Maigaard, Emerald Island is a stunning beaded shawl done in crochet.
The pattern is in English and uses US crochet terms. UK crochet terms are included in the key to symbols list.
The shawl is worked in one piece from the center (neck) and out. The main body has alternating shell and v-shape rows with a cluster insertion.
It can very easily be worked smaller or larger than shown (instructions for making changes are included). Two rows can be beaded (optional).
Anne-Lise rates the difficulty level of this piece as for the adventurous beginner. She includes both charts and written directions in the pattern.
The shawl forms a heart-shaped/deep triangle. 19 ¾ inches (50 cm) deep and 47.5 inches (120 cm) wingspan as shown.
The original shawl as you see here used 693 yards (634 m)/150 g of a fingering weight yarn. We do not offer the same yarn in our kits -- you can see what we have in the inset photo on the top picture and again below that.
Our yarn is one of the Meino Mia Six-Packs from Prism Yarns. It is a set of six coordinated colors in a distinct color "story".
Merino Mia is one of their high quality fingering weight yarns, 100% Merino Super Wash, each skein being 2 ounces/ 190 yards.
With1,140 yards you will have more than enough yarn for making this shawl a larger size if you so choose.
The set is called Blue Moon and runs from an aqua/green into deeper teals and then into darker and richer blues.
Anne-Lise used 323 size 6/0 seed beads.
Though the beads are optional, they will be included in the kit. And as you can make the shawl larger, you will need more beads. So we will be including between 400 and 450 beads in each kit.
If you decide you'd like more, let me know. And if you have a preference for bead color, let me know that too. Otherwise I will choose for you, most likely either mirroring the yarn colors or contrasting well.
The pattern is not automatically part of the kit.
If you so choose, you can get the pattern on Anne-Lise's Ravelry page. This will give you a copy in your Ravelry library and automatically receive any updates. In this case, set the drop-down menu above to "No Pattern Needed."
If you would prefer a printed copy or a PDF via email, please select that option via the "Pattern" drop-down menu. The PDF file will be emailed right before your kit is shipped.
