I think you can actually see the beads well here:

It ended up at about 20" from top to point and 50" across. I love it, and I'm really glad I'm making myself another (and maybe I'll make on for my nana, in Anne in a lovely red!). I love this pattern, if you couldn't tell. It moves fast at first and when you start to get REALLY bored of the second chart, you move on the third, and it goes on from there! It's just great.

Oh Sam it's gorgeous!! I love that colour - maybe I should do another one too, for myself. I really like the beads you added. :)
