PATTERN HERE

This pattern begins with a small knitted tab and grows outwards from the center of the neck edge, as you would work a traditional triangular shawl. Initially the garment is worked flat (back and forth), later the two edges are then joined to work in the round, and finally the same two edges are separated again to work flat (back and forth).

Placing Beads: Beads are placed on RS rows using a very narrow steel crochet hook. To place a bead on a stitch, insert hook through hole in bead sliding bead onto shaft of hook. Slip the stitch off the left needle and onto hook, slide the bead down off the hook and onto the stitch. Slip the stitch back to the left needle and knit it.

Placing Beads on Decreases: Place the bead before working the decrease.

  • SSK: Place bead on 1st st on left needle
  • K2tog: Place bead on 2nd st on left needle
  • S2kpo: Place bead on 2nd st on left needle
