If you have been reading my blog regularly over the summer you probably already know that I'm a bit fan of Sweet Georgia fibre as it's all I've been spinning all summer. But I'm also a big fan of Sweet Georgia yarns. I was so excited when the Merino Silk Lace in the Ultraviolet colourway arrived a few months ago. One of my favourite colours ever.

Let me introduce 'Rivoli' knitted in Sweet Georgia Merino Silk Lace:

'Rivoli' is a crescent shaped shawl which starts with the lace section which has pretty beads added too. The lace pattern is mirrored either side of the centre line.
 After the beaded lace section, the crescent shape is achieved by working a combination of short rows and decreases.
Crescent shawls are easy to wear and this shawl takes just one skein which makes it a very good value knit. The beads are optional and are added as you go using a crochet hook. But look at how pretty they are!  Ofcourse you'd want to add beads! Never added beads using the crochet hook method before? I've got a video tutorial showing you how.
 The pattern can be purchased here and the Sweet Georgia Merino Silk Lace can be purchased directly from Sweet Georgia Yarns or one of their stockists

A big thank you to Jen who knitted the beautiful sample for me!
