Flock is a crescent-shaped shawl worked from the bottom edge up. The main lace pattern features nupps. The curved stockinette body is achieved with short rows (no wraps, just decreases). The top edge is finished with an echo of the main lace pattern that transitions to purls to help fight curling.

Flock is fully charted, except for setup and finishing rows. Complete written translations for all charts are also provided.

Want to use beads instead of nupps? You will need 171 beads to make the shawl as written (please buy extra to account for broken or mis-shapen beads).
