Construction Notes

The shawl is worked from the bottom up, first it’s edging is worked in two halves and grafted in the center. Then the body stitches are picked up across the top of the edging and worked with decreases at the edges and center seam so that the shawl seamlessly tapers to the top as you work the Extendo Stitch. Optional beads add both weight and texture to this piece creating a fabric that is knit though it appears woven.
