Spumante: A New Beaded Shawl!

Spumante- A Beaded Garter Stitch ShawlSpumante- A Beaded Garter Stitch Shawl
Just in time for summer and early fall... a new beaded shawl which is the perfect cover up for cool evenings down at the lake, or to throw on when you get a chill.

Spumante is worked from the bottom up, it begins with a beaded lace border and then is shaped with simple garter stitch short rows. The nine row edging chart incorporates nupps and beaded yarnovers to create a delicate and textured border. A detailed swatching section with an exclusive step by step video is included to help you get started on this stunning shawl.  I think this design gives you the best of both worlds, a challenging edging that is a joy to work, and then rows of garter stitch that make for fabulous knitting on-the-go!
I knit this first version of Spumante with Hand Maiden Swiss Silk in Salt Spray.  Swiss Silk is light fingering and 100% silk... it was a JOY to work with, and feels incredibly luxurious around my neck.  I have a skein of Swan's Island Fingering that is destined to be a second version of this, as I can already tell how well this design fits into my wardrobe.  Other yarns that would be perfect for Spumante are String Theory's Bluestocking, Schaefer Yarn Anne, and Wollmeise.

You can purchase Spumante on my website or on Ravelry!  I've set up a thread in my Ravelry group if anyone wants to join in on a KAL...


  1. This is absolutely stunning. Oh my

  2. The netted shawl is stunning. Reminds me of a Glittering silver netted shawl from Yours Elegantly an online unique shawls site located in CT that I bought for my boutique inauguration. I got so many compliments. Yours seems to be beaded too which I would love. I like unique shawls not the everyday pashminas.

  3. I love that scarf. Maybe one day you can knit me a scarf like that. Please!
