Well, a friend saw my wife's fichu and decided she wanted a lacier-blingier version. She's a public speaker and wanted something that would sparkle under the lights.
The Summer 2008 Knitter's magazine had this one done in green which fit the bill.
The one I've made was made using a US #7 needle, I only did 10 of the 12 charted pattern repeats (otherwise it was gonna' be huge!). I used a different border and added 6/0 seed beads in multiple colors (blue, silver, clear, etc.) throughout the body and then a blue 8mm bead for the border.
