Snowflakes and Icicles

We are very excited to add the amazing Snwoflakes and Icicles Shawl pattern to our online pattern collection! This pattern was designed and generously donated by Sue Lazenby.

“An elongated, crescent shaped shawl which sits easily on the shoulders, with a simple pattern of snowflakes that descend into a flurry in the border where they become icicles. A quick to make shawl, using little yarn that can be made in a mohair and silk blend for a cosy winter accessory or in a smooth silk or wool yarn that would suit either casual or dressier wear. There is also an option for making a deeper border.”


What you need to get started:

  • 4ply /fingering weight 382 – 437 yd / 350 – 400 m per 100g. Suggest a silk or silk / mohair blend.
  • Yarn: Small (medium), approx. 380 yd / 348 m – 400 yd / 366 m (500 yd / 457 m – 520 yd / 476 m).
  • Needles: US # 4 / 3.5mm, 40” / 100 cm circular needle or size to achieve desired gauge.
  • Beads: 164 (you’ll need 2 x 9-10g tubes). I used size 5 silver lined crystal Miyuki triangles on my sample, but size 6 round Miyuki or Matsuno beads could be used instead.
  • Crochet hook: 0.75 mm for beading.
  • 2 stitch markers.
  • Blocking wires and pins.
