Effervescence is a one-skein, quick-to-knit project, and a perfect introduction to lace and beaded knitting. The entire shawl is worked in basic garter stitch; all the increases are easy yarn overs and the decreases are simple knit-two-together.

This shawl is worked in one piece, side-to-side, to make the most out of a single skein of beautiful handpainted yarn. The lace border incorporates all the increases and decreases that shape the shawl, which creates an uninterrupted field of garter stitch making the shawl fully reversible.

Beads can be added to the edge stitches for extra drape and sparkle (blue sample shawl); however, the shawl looks great even without the beads (pink sample shawl). If desired, instead of beading every right side row, a single bead can be added to each tip of the lace edging – simply add a bead only to row 7 of the lace.

The shawl can be left unblocked for a fun little neck scarf, perfect for tucking into neckline of coats and jackets, or it can be blocked to a more traditional shoulder shawl size. The shawl can be worn loosely like a long scarf or it can be wrapped closer around the neck for extra warmth. Stylish, fun, and practical, Effervescence will add a bright touch of color to any wardrobe.

I absolutely love the look and style of this pattern and the way the yarn's colors change. I bought the pattern and started making a prayer shawl for a dear friend recently diagnosed with cancer. I followed the written directions rather than the chart as it is easier for me. There is no indication on the written directions as to how many stitches are at the end of each row. I got to the middle of the shawl increasing as directed, then started following the directions for the decrease side. I kept going, thinking where are the decreases? Thinking, OMG I need more yarn and it called for one skein! Ordered more yarn. Kept knitting, but it was not decreasing at the same rate that it had increased on the first half. Now I have to stop and wait to either hear from the designer .... or try to figure out the issue on my own. Very frustrating as my friend will not get her shawl in time for chemo treatment. Otherwise, the first half is lovely and easy to do and with this handpainted yarn it is a joy to knit with and to watch the colors come into play. Just very disappointed as I have never bought a download pattern online before.
