October and time for dark and beautiful things… This year, I was captivated by the complicated character of Vanessa Ives from Penny Dreadful. Composed, stately, yet dark and wild, Vanessa Ives is full of mystery. This is a pattern perfect for the month of October featuring a crescent shaped shawl, with lace, nupps, and beads. A lovely gift or perhaps for upcoming holiday parties. Lacy and elegant, positively feminine. There are a little over 100 rows, so you can change the size, with your yarn weight. You will also need approx 720 beads, sized 6/0 or 8/0. In addition, there is a simple crocheted edge option.
