About Crystalline

A beaded shawl or scarf in a textured, geometric lace pattern with asymmetric edging detail.

Based on a classic tumbling blocks motif, this original lace pattern uses beading and garter stitch to pick out the detail.

The design features a staggered cast-on and cast off (bind off) and diamond shaped edging.

The pattern is suitable for knitters with experience of lace knitting and knitting from charts (though written instructions are also given).
