Construction Notes: Optional beading. Knit in one piece starting at the outside edge of the lace border, followed by short rows that give the shawlette its unique crescent form. Easy enough even for the beginner lace knitter because the wrong side rows are purled and the addition of beads is optional. Charts only.
