Vibrant blues and greens splash across this Proud as a Peacock shawl, producing a fan of glory, to be envied by all. The intricate lace stitches combined with glass beads and silky blue-faced Leicester wool lend a sophisticated look to this stunning shawl. Pair it with an evening dress or a casual pair of jeans, whichever the choice, you’ll receive so many compliments, you’ll be beaming with pride.

I cannot emphasis how much I loved knitting this shawl. The yarn is dreamy (of course it is, it’s from Moonlight Yarns), and the pattern was one of the easiest lace patterns I’ve ever knit. Easy stitch combinations to keep in my memory, with just enough beading to create an elegant finished product. I’d recommend this pattern to anyone who wants to knit lace but doesn’t have a lot of experience. The hardest thing about making this shawl was figuring out where to thread the blocking wires because of the single stitch border.
