Gemtastic Shawl - Knit Pattern

Ariane Gallizzi's Gemtastic Shawl is knit sideways starting with 3 stitches, gradually increasing to its full length. The beads, which provide just the right amount of sparkle, are pre-strung before each color change.

Originally designed for a DK-weight yarn, we've done it both in fingering held single (for a shawlette) and in fingering held double (for a slightly larger shawl). For that, we recommend Zen Yarn Garden's Superfine Fingering in any of its stunning colorways...and we have so many to choose from! We carry the beads too!
