Nymphaea: Water lily! Cascading zigzags evoke wind on the water, interspersed with floral shell lace bands. This shawl was designed as a collaborative project with Bead Biz and June Pryce Fiber Arts. The fingering weight merino/cashmere/nylon 7 mini-skein gradient and 5 coordinating sets of beads make this shawl a joy to knit.

Nymphaea is knit with 700 yards of June Pryce Fiber Arts Saunderstown Sock, a fingering weight merino/cashmere/nylon blend. Color shown is Purple Mountains.

The gradient yarn provides visual interest, as do the beads.

A knit on edging completes the shawl.

This pattern will be available exclusively through Bead Biz, at shows and festivals, and their online shop, from October 2017 through September 2018.

Many thanks to Amanda Woodruff for tech editing, and Erin Hocraffer for modeling.
