Tradition meets technology in cachoeira — a sensuously slinky beaded lace shawl. I’ve been enamored with this very traditional lace pattern reminiscent of waterfalls and ice floes for a long time and was waiting for the right design to pop into my head and the right yarn to come along. When I started working with Bellatrista milk yarn, I knew it was a match!
The simple rectangular shape of cachoeira really showcases the lace and highlights all of the shimmering, glossy, drape of the yarn, and the beaded edging and twisted beaded fringe added just the right touch of bling and swing.
cachoeira is suitable for an intermediate knitter or adventurous beginner. Once the pattern is established, it is not hard to memorize. The beaded twisted fringe takes a bit of time but is well worth the effort.
Thank you to our stunning model Lina Albernaz for making the knitwear look so gorgeous. Photos were taken on location at the beautiful Hollywood Schoolhouse in Woodinville, WA.
