Absolutely Stunning!!!!! I can't wait to try making this. Thank you for sharing the pattern.

I'm now on my 3rd shawl, first 2 were gifts this one is for me. I'd not done any lace from charts or beads before so I practiced on spare yarn and watched You Tube tutorials on how to do a provisional cast on. All of which helped me when I came to make the real thing. Fantastic pattern, I can't wait until mine is finished!

This Aeolian Shawl looks to me like such a lovely way to finish off an outfit and it is so versatile too! Like many women, I often wear a scarf or shawl simply to finish off an outfit and this pattern looks so light and beautiful and the inclusion of the beads adds such a fabulous touch. So glad to see the comments below, they encourage me to start making it NOW!

another pattern involving beads so more practise with them - a cover-up yes, but also a light wrap with sleeveless dress or blouse for a summer evening or a cool spring day

This is just what I need as a cover-up at the beach to protect me from the sun and breeze! It is big enough to wrap around and maybe tie a loose knot to keep it from falling off the shoulders. Can't wait to try this one out and have it ready for spring!

I finished mine last year, am trying to upload pics of it. It is wedding white with small beads. I made a "sample" shawl out of leftover sock yarn first, then made my "final" version after I had completed a chart putting the beads on that one. Was easier to do this way. The pics are of it being blocked. Mine is made of Alpaca yarn with silk. I could help someone with directions if need be. Been working on a second on for a gift.

I ended up making this twice with mohair lace by Filati Europa. The first time was a tremendous learning curve. I agree with the comments that the instructions are difficult to understand. So the second time I started my own way (I forget exactly what I did). The first one is now a scarf, but without the beads. I had about 40 glass beads which I threaded onto the yarn since the holes were too small for any crochet hook. I dispersed them in my own pattern for the second larger shawl. This was my 5th lace project. I am happy with my mistakes. I now think I have a greater understanding of lace. I still make mistakes, but I am able to compensate for them on successive rows. The shawl is so amazing. I do not get many complements because no one thinks I made it!

i am trying to knit the Aeolian shawl and cannot get started according to your directions is there some way i can see step by step - i am an experienced knitter but this baffles me my e mail is thank you

Absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Can't wait to make one!

tried it without the beads. knitted up fairly fast. was easy to frog when I messed up. looks good. but is very big on my tiny frame. perfect to keep sun off me.
