Please note - there is a typo in the chart row numbers - what is printed as ‘42’ is really ‘41’ and should be worked on RS, not WS. The row numbers should read 39, 41, 43 and not 39, 42, 43.

Inspired by Frederica, the sweet and kind daughter of Lady Susan, this crescent shawl features dainty floral lace combined with delicate beads. A gossamer shawl like this could have been worn by Frederica to her wedding and then used for many years as an accessory for her evening gowns.

This wrap is worked in one piece starting at the bottom edge of the lace followed by a set of easy stockinette short rows (no wraps), which shape the shawl into a versatile crescent. At the top edge, just before the bind off, the short row section is finished with beaded floral lace segments for added interest (total 350 8/0 3.1mm seed beads).

Note about the yardage requirement - I used approximately 500 yards from the 1250 yard skein for the sample shawlette.
