Harper Shawl is a beautiful beaded piece by Melinda Measor of rhyFlower Knits.


Please purchase the pattern directly from Melinda on her Ravelry page here.  What we have put together are kits of yarn + beads to knit this with.


The Design

Here is how the designer describes this lovely shawl:

Harper is a delightful top-down crescent-shape shawl that dabbles in a variety of techniques, like beading and blending colors to give you a 3-colored effect from 2 skeins!

The lace motif creates a special rippling that looks cool in two similarly colored yarns.

Yarn and Colorways

Our yarns are not the same as what Melinda used for her original.  You can see our kit in the inset photo on the top picture and again below that. 

What is needed is simply two fingering weight yarns:

Color A: 312 yds / 285 m fingering weight yarn
Color B: 361 yds / 330 m fingering weight yarn

Melinda recommends two that pair well together and give a blended look -- she advises ones that are semi-solid or lightly variegated/ speckled yarns. 

Our Kit is made up of:

1. One skein of Malibrigo's Mechita (fingering weight with 420 yards/ 100g of 100% superwash merino) in a new colorway named Valentina.  Valentina is an almost-solid pink of varying tones and depths. 

2. One skein of Dream in Color's Smooshy Cashmere, 70% superwash merino + 20% cashmere + 10% nylon (400 yards/ 100g) in a colorway called Milky Spite. This is a blend of soft hues including some pinks and roses, some greens and teals, some lilacs and violets and maybe some in-between colors I missed. 


The pattern is written for optional beads -- we will include them in your kit unless you tell us differently. 

What is needed is 552 size 6/0 beads (that's about 46 grams; we'll give you extras) which are added via a very thin crochet hook.  Here is our how-to article on that. 

If you have a preference on bead color, tell me.  Otherwise I will choose for you.
