Notes From the Designer:

Growing up, one of my favorite book series was The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. In it he described so many wonderful places and characters that it sparked my imagination to no end. One of the places off the coast of Narnia was an island called Terebinthia. I always liked the name and thought it would be a lovely place to visit. So I created Terebinthia, which is a lightweight, lacy shawl (or scarf) that’s perfect for a boat ride to your favorite destination or just a stroll in the park. The lace pattern is adapted from 50 Fabulous Knitted Lace Stitches by Rita Weiss and is very easy to adjust to make it the right length or width for your taste. You can also add beads to give a little added sparkle to your project.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and it keeps you warm wherever life takes you. Happy knitting! 

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a video on how to work the lace repeat and add beads.
  • Terebinthia is worked flat from the bottom up in one piece.
  • You can add beads to the whole thing, or you can place them in stripes. For example, you can work the first 12 rows with beads and then the next 12 rows without beads to make horizontal stripes. In the shawl shown here, we beaded the stripes vertically by placing the beads only on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th repeat across. The scarf was beaded on every repeat. You can also use one bead color for the first six rows and another bead color for the second six rows of the chart. Have fun with it!
  • If you wish to adjust the width of your project, you'll need to cast on a multiple of 28 + 2. So if you wanted to knit three repeats across, you would multiply it out thusly: (28 x 3) + 2 = 86 sts.
  • When you get to the part where you need to add a bead, choose a bead, and slip it over your crochet hook. Then take the stitch off of the left-hand needle, and place the stitch on the hook. Pull the stitch through the bead. Afterwards, carefully place the stitch back on your left-hand needle, and knit the stitch normally. (Yes, it is that simple!)
  • Calculating the number of beads needed: It takes 10 beads per 12 rows for one repeat across. If you knit two repeats across (like for the scarf), you'll need 20 beads to complete the 12 rows, and if you knit five repeats across (like for the shawl), you'll need 50 beads to complete the 12 rows. Then just multiply it out from there.
  • 35 repeats of the pattern were worked for the sample shawl, and 60 repeats were worked for the sample scarf.
  • Before knitting your project, be sure to test the color fastness of your beads. String a few beads on some waste project yarn, and let it soak for a few minutes to make sure that the color of the beads doesn’t bleed onto the yarn, especially if you are using a white or similarly light colored yarn. If you are still concerned about the possibility of the beads bleeding when it is time to block your project, you may wish to spray block your project. Pin your project out, and then spritz it with some cold water until it is wet. Adjust your pinning to get your project to your desired measurements, spritzing as needed to keep your project wet. Then let dry.
