Another Swallowtail
Here is yet another Swallowtail that I just finished. This one is for me. I wanted a black and white scarf for this winter, so I returned to my "go to" shawlette pattern. I've made it enough times that it moves along pretty quickly, but there are enough changes in the pattern to keep it interesting. The yarn is Zauberball 1508 (black, white, gray). I've never used Zauberball before, but I like it. It's softer than the Kauni. The colors are nicer, IMO, than the Knitpicks' Chroma. I used glass seed beads (black and dark gray) in lieu of the nupps. The recommended needle size for the yarn is 2-3 mm. I used 4.0 mm to open up the lace, but that was probably pushing it. The wingspan is about 52" after blocking, so I'm happy with the end result. I used about 75 gms of the 100 gm ball.
