We have a few marvelous kits set up and ready for a new home for this beautiful shawl.
Our current in-stock kits are all the colorway #'d 1:00 to 4:00, a lovely golden to apricot to pink blend of hues. Read below for more data.
It is best if you get your pattern from the Boo Knits Ravelry page here. We offer here yarn and beads to make this beauty.
About the design:
Here is how the amazing designer, Bev of Boo-Knits, describes it:
Remember those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer? Who would want to forget them! This top-down, crescent shaped shawl is delicate, lacy and dripping with beads. The stocking stitch body leads into a profusion of romantic lace reminiscent of nodding flowers; bluebells, honeybells, fuchsias . . .
The beads whisper as the shawl moves and the overall effect is a shimmer of romantic mist – a hazy daze of a shawl!
In Cirrus, the new heavy lace weight 80/20 blend of merino/silk, each kit will have four skeins totaling at least 872 yards.
Each set is composed of 4 skeins, three of which are 25g (218 yards) and one a "fatter" 33g (291 yards).
The reason one end of your color Gradiance of yarn has a fatter skein than the other three is the designer's recommendation that you consider this your Yarn A. This would be the color skein to start your shawl and for the final bind-off.
It is not essential -- so if you really would like to start from the other end, you can do so. None the test knitters had this fatter skein to choose as their first one and they did fine. We are including it simply so it can be easier and you can be assured that you have enough to include the bind off.
These colorways were developed by Kelly and based on the circle you see in the second photo on this page. She originally named this circle Waning Rainbow but it has adopted the name of this shawl (slightly modified) and is now called Hazy Days. It includes all of the colors of the spectrum but softened up with a touch of gray.
The colorway we have in stock is 1:00 to 4:00 -- a gorgeous sunrise of tones. The skeins of yarns for this colorway are shown in the third photo on this page.
The finished shawls you see on this page are other parts of the color circle. Bev chose from 5:00 to 8:00 for her shawl and those are the partial photos you see above -- a beautiful delicacy of coolness.
One of the test knitters knit on 9:00 to 12:00 -- that one can be seen in the third photo on this page, poolside. That set of colors reminds me of the sky right after the sun has set -- quite delicate and lovely.
The shawl uses about 900 size 5/0 Triangles. (That's a lot of beads!)
Because the colors are so gentle, I thought it best that the beads mirror this. For the 1:00 to 4:00 colors, I like the Apricot Lined Crystal triangles, a golden tone that mirrors colors found in the first two skeins.
The Peony Pink Lined Crystal also works well for this set.
If you have a preference, let me know. Otherwise let me choose for you.
The pattern is not automatically included in this kit. This page gives you the yarn and beads to make this beauty.
We strongly suggest that you get the pattern directly from Bev via her Ravelry web page. The pattern will be saved in your Ravelry library and you will automatically get the latest edition of the pattern along with any needed updates.
If you would prefer a printed copy or a PDF via email, please let me know and I will set that up for you instead.
A real beauty here!
