Take your knitting to dizzying new heights with this beautiful lace shawl.
The View from the Spire shawl was inspired by a glittering vista of snow and lights viewed from the top of the Hallgrimskirkja Church in Reykjavik, Iceland. Worked from side to side, the shawl is a journey back and forth through beaded lace that twinkles like the lights of the city below and the quiet calm of stockinette as smooth as untouched snow in the distance.
As you near the end of your shawl, the deeper lace section really showcases the glittering beads and you will see your own spires begin to emerge and decorate the border of your shawl. A lovely stretchy bind-off will allow for a beautifully scalloped edge to be formed when blocking.
