My Spanish Dancer Shawl is now available. This shawl is large enough to make it possible to wear in many different ways, and has a fabulous drape due to the beaded edge. The lace version of the shawl is perfect for warm summer evenings, whereas the thicker double knit version is well suited for winter wearing.

Spanish Dancer Shawl
I have made two versions of this shawl, one using lace yarn and one using double knit (DK) yarn. The shawls are similar in size, but the number of repeats is different for the two versions. The pattern contains details for both yarn weights.
The shawl is insanely big and comes in at a whopping 200cm (81”) wide and 150cm (61”) deep. When the shawl is completed, it’s about half the size, but when you block it, it just keeps on stretching! The lace shawl shown here uses Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace Rose Pink (509) and Fyberspates Gleam Lace Tweed Imps (701).
The DK shawl samples below show two versions. The first one uses Scheepjes Our Tribe “Pistachio Branch” (878) for the solid granny stitches, with Scheepjes Our Tribe “Felted Button” (965) for the flower bands and has a pink beaded edge. The second shawl uses Scheepjes Our Tribe “It’s all in a Nutshell” (973) for the solid granny stitches, with Scheepjes Our Tribe “Silver Birch” (880) for the flower bands and is finished without a beaded edge. The beads are optional and in the pattern I give instructions for working an edge with or without the beads.
Name the shawl
I was at a loss for what to call this new shawl design of mine and asked you for help. There were many suggestions, and a lot of them I liked, particularly the ones that were related to dance styles or moves. I though that really works well for this shawl. Nicole Hodapp specifically suggested “Spanish Dancer” and I thought, yes! that’s it. Nicole, thank you very much for the suggestion, and as promised you will get a free copy of the pattern.
