Pattern Description:

This is a Crescent shape shawl either worked in one solid color or in 2 colors. If you are working with 2 colors, you want the solid color to be Color A so your beads will show up. Color B can be either a solid or mixed color to match your solid and Color B will not have beads. I have the color changes stated in pattern so you know when to change colors. Contains Charts and Written Directions.

There are 3 options for color on this shawl
Option 1:
100 grams of fingering weight in Color A (this is the solid or semi solid where your beads are placed).
100 grams of fingering weight in Color B (this is a coordinating color of your choice that compliments your solid, it can be as wild and wacky as you want. There will not be any beads on this color.

Option 2: If you only want the short row section (the crescent at top) to be your contrasting color B
100 grams of fingering weight in Color A - solid or semi solid so beads show up
50 grams of fingering weight in Color B.

Option 3: No color change, all one color
150 grams of fingering weight in Color A - solid or semi solid so beads show up

Deby Lake on

I live in the quaint Alpine City of Gaylord MI. I learned to knit from my great grandmother at the age of 8. I am also known as O/C Knitiot, and I come by it naturally. Everything has to match & balance in my knitting. My friends tease me, but I secretly fear they will bury me with mismatched socks to get even.
