A Turquoise Angel

Sivia Harding's Angel Pearls beaded scarf, made with leftovers from Sivia Harding's Shetland Garden shawl (see September 17 and September 19 entries). My only difficulty with the pattern is that the purl and bead symbols on the charts look exactly the same. Fortunately the written instructions allowed me to mark where to place the beads — hooray for designers who provide both written instructions and charts.

  • Yarn: Nature Spun fingering weight, approximately 1 skein
  • Color: Hurricane Seas
  • Needles: US5
  • Beads: Silverline 6/0 Black Diamond (turquoise is darned hard to match, so I opted for contrast)
  • Pattern repeats: 13 repeats of the middle section
  • Size: Don't know; I gave it to my friend Liz before I measured it
