“Confluence Shawlette” pattern by Sivia Harding

Sivia Harding is a local designer, renowned for her beautiful beaded knit designs. Her work has been published in many books and magazines, and can also be found all over the internet.

All About Yarn is excited to finally offer Sivia’s patterns to our customers, Confluence Shawlette is just one of many we now carry. Here’s what the designer has to say about her lovely pattern:

“Like bodies of water emerging from a single spring, the panels of this shawlette flow effortlessly from a few cast on stitches at center back. The simple garter stitch sides and borders combine elegantly with beaded lace, and additional increasing at the center panel provides for a wonderful fit. Beads are placed with the crochet hook add-as-you-go method.”

Materials needed for pattern: (two choices of yarn weights and their corresponding needles to choose from)
• 420/440 yards of Fingering/Lace weight yarn; shop sample was done in Breathless by Shalimar
• Circular needle, US #6/#3 in 32” length
• Seed beads: 83 size 6/0 seed beads or 4 mm megatama beads
Stitch markers
• Crochet hook, 0.6 mm (14 U.S)
