This is the revealed of Eternal Flame MCAL that I had on September 2020. I made 2 samples using this pattern, using lace weight and fingering weight yarns. Both only using 1 skein.

Eternal Flame is a crescent shape shawl, worked top down from the center. The crescent shape makes this shawl very versatile and easy to wear. This shawl is designed with a dramatic edging and plenty of beads all over the shawl (but if beads are not for you, then you can omit them all together). This shawl can be worked in any weight of yarn. Pattern includes charts and written directions. As with all my other patterns, this pattern comes with charts and row-by-row written direction in US crochet term. You can work entirely from the written direction or from the charts alone.
