Rosana is a crescent shawl with a beaded lace border of stylized leaves and rosebuds. It is worked from the bottom up beginning with a picot cast on, then continuing into a lace border, and ending with a Stockinette stitch body worked in short rows. Seed beads are incorporated into the border using a small crochet hook. The glistening beads are complimented by the sheen of the wool/silk blend laceweight yarn. Rosana is a perfect lightweight shawl to be wrapped over spring dresses.
Stitch pattern is charted. Instructions for two picot cast ons are included.
