My first lace triangular shawl ever! I was so excited choosing the pattern and then the yarn, having no experience with lace. In the end knitting it turned out so easy and pleasant that I'm ready for a second shawl :)
Pattern: Haruni by Emily Ross
Yarn: Alize Cashmira Fine, 450 m, 100 g exactly
Needle: 3.5 mm
Time to knit: 7 days
For the second part of the lace I applied slight beading with dark red beads. I inserted them in the course of knitting, using the crochet hook method and I improvised a small hook out of this resistor. The legs of the resistor are a bit too bendy, but I couldn't think of anything more suitable for a hook replacement, and I don't know of any real crochet hook that could pass through so small beads.
I had bought two skeins of Alize Cashmira Fine in this gorgeous scarlet red and I was really surprised that one skein was just enough to the last span of yarn. I knitted the shawl without any major modifications, with crochet bind off.
A very beautiful yet easy free pattern, excellently written. I would recommend it to anyone - beginner or experienced lace knitter.
