I wanted to created something special & different for my crafty BBF & Back to Hogwarts swap partner jennieingram.  I had it in my mind that this shawlette would be perfect for anyone up in the Tower studying Astronomy.  Not only would it emulate the night sky with its varying deep blues and sparkles from beads as stars, it would keep the chill away that is always found up high in towers.

Pattern Used: Wingspan Crochet Shawl by Carole Marie which is free for Ravelry peeps
Yarn Used: 1.5 skeins of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal (924 yds of fingering weight yarn)
Hook Used: 3.5 mm (E)
Modifications: I replaced HDCs for SCs and added beaded fringe.





Thanks for peeking, and happy hooking if you decide to dive into this project. Grin

Its amazing how a little light can change the way something appears on a picture!
Hehe, pinned the yarn, hopefully someone will sent me some of this during personal swap or something Tongue, the colour is gorgeous and the transitions so good!
I guess that's the disadvantage of not living in the USA, shipping costs kills -_-"

It took me a bit, but I did work on other projects during the course of making it (and dealt with life i.e. homeschooling & illnesses).  I say a reasonable, relaxed timeframe to set for yourself, if you are an experienced crocheter, is one month. Grin

Downloaded - thanks!  What a lucky swap partner you had!  I like the addition of the fringe, too.
