This elegant shawlette with its smaller size is the perfect light cover up for an evening summer party. The design includes the addition of shimmery beads for extra textural detail, but the lace will look great even if left unadorned. Nupps instead of beads are also an option and the test knit was done with those: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Nancy/abrazo
Abrazo is knitted in one piece starting at the outside edge of the lace border followed by short rows, which give the shawlette its unique crescent form. The elongated narrow shape lends itself to numerous ways of tying and draping without the need for a shawl pin. It is a project easy enough even for the beginner lace knitter because the reverse rows are purled and the addition of beads or nupps is optional.
The original shawl was completed with just over 420 yards of the gorgeous Beyond Basic Knits Lavish Lace yarn.
