The Dews drew quivering and chill -
For only Gossamer, my Gown -
My Tippet - only Tulle -
An ethereal triangle with a scattering of crystal beads inspired by lines from American poet, Emily Dickinson.
Knit from the bottom up on 3.5mm/US4 needles with approximately 20g/320m/350yds of Jamieson & Smith Shetland Supreme 1 ply Gossamer yarn, color grey.
I used the Single Cast On, worked loosely to get pointy points.
273 clear glass 6/0 Japanese beads are added with a 1mm crochet hook. Three on each point, and a diamond grid across the shoulders.
Finished dimensions after blocking:
50in/127cm x 24in/61cm
Gauge: approximately 34 sts and 34 rows = 4in/10cm in garter stitch
The pdf includes three charts and instructions.
A top down version of this pattern is available separately as Emily 2.
