Belarra takes its inspiration from the architectural qualities of ornamental grasses, which can grow to impressive sizes throughout the summer.
The simple lace and cable pattern increases in size to mimic the growth of the grass stalks and it ends in a more elaborate border. The border reflects not only the complex shapes of the seed heads, but also the sinuous movement of the grasses blowing in the wind.
The shawl is worked from the top, starting with a shallow section of stockinette short rows, down to the lace border. Beads are added throughout for a bit of sparkle and for additional texture (725 6/0 4.00 mm seed beads, optional).
