Knitting Pattern

Designed for a wedding gift, Garden of Dreams is a beautiful lace shawl that is easy to wear.

Yarn: Lace weight wool or wool-blend. 800-900 m (875-984 yds)
Needles: 3.5mm (US 4)

Skill Level: Intermediate Lace

Skills Needed: Disappearing loop cast-on, picot bind-off, nupps, multi-decreases, short rows, multi-stitches (ex: 7 from 5), beading. (Video tutorial provided.)

Pattern is both written (line by line instructions) and charted (every row) with many changing motifs. Pattern is available with 2 different format styles, both of which include the basic pattern information: 1) integrated – charts are provided alongside written instructions for ease of reference, 2) charts only (with necessary written information).


  • 802 Beads size 8/0
  • (8 for center motif + 301 for chevron pattern + 478 before the BO + 15 on front/neck band)
  • beading wire/ beading needle for knits / tiny crochet hook that will fit size 8/0 beads (0.75mm)
  • at least 1 stitch marker
  • smooth scrap yarn to hold stitches in waiting

  • blocking tools
  • optional: small crochet hook for working nupps. I suggest 2.5mm-3mm.

Errata: Chart H has errata. Written instructions are correct as are stitch counts. There are 13 repeats of the shaded area and the left side should finish with 3 from 5 followed by a YO, K4, short row turn on R70. R72 starts with K5. It should look more like Chart J (but with the extra YO on R70).
