A triangular shawl with simple stockinette body and beaded cobweb frill border. Dropped stitches produce the open edging, which is worked from the bottom up and creates a weblike construction studded with shiny beads. Written in three sizes, with instructions for a Sock yarn shawl, a DK shawlette, and a DK shawl; the edging may also be made as wide or as narrow as desired.
Gauge: Sock yarn shawl: 15 st x 40 rows/4" in stockinette stich; approximately 6 horizontal web repeats/4".
(DK shawlette & shawl: 12 st x 34 rows/4" in stockinette; approximately 5 horizontal web repeats/4"),
Gauge is not critical for this project; however, a different gauge may result in a smaller or larger finished shawl, and different yardage requirements.
