Lady of Light is a subtle shawl with quiet, understated beauty. This elegant triangle shawl is named after Galadriel, the queen of the elves.

Lady of Light is a shallow triangle-shaped shawl made with smooth stockinette, rhythmic lace, and shimmering beads. The shawl comes in two size variations — one or two skeins of fingering — along with instructions for adjusting the shawl size as needed. There are also two suggestions for bead placement. Beads are of course entirely optional!

Lady of Light begins a series of shawl designs inspired by The Lord of the Rings. Both written and charted instructions are provided for the lace pattern. The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology.
