Falling leaves splash across this lovely shawlette. Crescent shaped, Allegheny Muse may be worn as a shawl or scarf.

Worked in a light fingering-weight or heavier lace-weight yarn, Allegheny Muse knits up with one skein of many yarns, and is suitable for solids and semi-solid yarns. Gauge is not crucial if more yarn is on hand.

Pattern features both written and charted instructions for the lacey leaf pattern and includes three edge options (plain, eyelet, and beaded eyelet). Beaded eyelet shown. Pattern may be worked with or without beads. Here are links for adding beads using Superfloss or crochet hook.
