Aristea shawls are inspired by the multitudes of tiny new flowers and leaves bursting everywhere during the spring season. The lace pattern features different shapes and sizes of leaves, while its interesting texture is created either by working nupps or by adding a few seed beads.
The crescent is worked from the top down in a DK weight yarn and is shaped using a simple set of stockinette short rows (200 6/0 4.0mm seed beads, optional - can be worked as nupps or skipped).
