Introducing Luca

I've been looking forward to revealing a new shawl design for weeks now. Luca is delicate, silky and dripping with beads. It combines garter stitch stripes with decadent lace.

Luca is worked top down in an interesting shape. The shawl starts as a triangular shawl and after the first section, another panel is added either side. The pattern is really clearly written and as long as you follow the pattern and use markers where suggested, the shape is easy to achieve.

The edging has a really interesting bead detail. On the last right side row, triple yarn overs are worked and on the final row, a string of three beads are added to those triple yarn overs. The beads are added in the same way as adding one bead, except you add three beads. I have a 'Knitting With Beads' video tutorial which shows how to add beads using the crochet hook method.

Luca is 25% off until 23 June on Ravelry only. No coupon code needed. Luca is also available on Love Knitting but there's no discount there.

Luca is knitted in Schoppel 6 Karat and takes one skein of each colour. I have a few skeins of 6 Karat in the YarnAddict Shop but will have more at Woolfest next week.
