Lithodora is a wonderful offering from pattern designer Laura Patterson of Fiber Dreams, and features a lovely lace and beads shawl/scarf using a 200g skein of Silken Lace.

Pattern Description:

This pattern begins with a provisional cast on and is worked straight through to the picot bind-off.  Working lace on the only the right side of the work, you'll love the easy-to-read charted instructions.  If you prefer not to work with charts, instructions are clearly written out as well.  This pattern has four size options, and 3 beaded options within each size.

Silken Lace is a lovely silk & superwash merino 3-ply yarn that works well with lace knitting to make a diaphanous but utterly wearable finished knit.  Add beads for weight and sparkle.

Helpful information:

  • BEAD OPTIONS: you may knit this project without adding beads.  However, beads are recommended and have 3 options within each size of the pattern. Bead range for the smallest size is 50 to 500 beads and for the largest size runs from 125 to 1175 beads.  You will want to read the entire pattern and determine your size and bead preference before purchasing your beads.  Recommended beads: 6/0 or 8/0.
