I knit 56 repeats and probably could have knit 2 more but I didn’t want to risk running out of yarn. I did use a scale to weigh the yarn as I went along. The voice in my head talked me out of believing the scale. As you can see the shawl is plenty big enough.
The pattern is well written and easy to follow. It includes a tutorial for adding the beads with a small crochet hook. I used a different method. Tutorial is here for what I did. It works well for me. The yarn is lovely. It’s a lighter fingering weight which I think is perfect for this pattern. The colors in the yarn are beautiful. It has shades of purple, blue and gray. I’ve used this yarn before and I know I will used it again.
