There is one bead at each point of the edging, which is worked continuously with the main piece.
The shawl is cast-on at the center neck and worked out and down, with a center corner expansion.
Here you can the see full piece blocking.
This pattern will be available as a printed pattern from Jade Sapphire. Please ask for it where Jade Sapphire yarns are sold!
The second new design I want to introduce is called Tallin Sunset. This design was inspired by photographs that a friend took while visiting Tallin, in Estonia. The vibrant colors of the sunset stayed with me. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace, in a new color called Satsuma. The colors are all shades of smokey oranges, with a lovely tone-on-tone quality.
You can see the full piece in the blocking picture. This design is worked from the center using a temporary cast-on. After two sections are worked, the edging is picked up all around and worked outward.
This next close-up shows the two "panels." One is an insert with flowing nupps and the second is a band with cable-like eyelets.
The next close-up shows you the edging points. Each has a small bead. Note the twist above the bead.
Tallin Sunset is available as a printed pattern from Lorna's Laces, so please ask for it at shops that stock their yarn!
I'll be back Monday with more about our Valentine's Day project. Until then, knit, knit, knit!
