Inspired by the complex geometry of ice crystals, Isen is knitted from the bottom up starting with the deep ruffled border. The textured section is worked next - embossed stitches outline geometric shapes reminiscent of ice crystals with sparkling beads added throughout (252 4.0 mm magatama glass beads, optional). The shawl is then shaped into a crescent with simple reverse stockinette short rows (no wraps), which are finished with a beaded border. 3-stitch I-cord bind off is worked last to reinforce the shawl’s top edge.
14 July 2014 - error in the directions for Chart A - it reads “work rows 1 - 32”; however, Chart A has 34 rows so the directions should read “work rows 1 - 34”. The chart itself is correct.
