This sideways-knit garter stitch shawl features an unusual tentacular edging and optional beads, and recalls Harry Potter's Venomous Tentacula, a green, spikey plant with mobile vines that grab living prey, aggressive shoots that expel venom, and a poisonous bite.
The sideways edging is made by repeatedly binding off and casting on stitches, creating a pattern of "holes."
Any yarn and any amount may be used; instructions are given for adjusting for different yardage.
Gauge: 24 stitches and 28 rows/4" in garter stitch, after blocking.
Recovering attorney and emigree from Seventh Avenue, I like writing patterns almost as much as knitting them. Visit me at www.jenniferdassau.com
