A wonderful tester of mine suggested making “Off Kilter” into a crescent shape. And so Kareena was born!!

Kareena is knit topdown into a crescent shape in three sizes, Medium which uses 650 yds, Large 750 yds and XLarge 900 yds.

This design is the third of four patterns in Shawls of Many Shapes, Book Two.

Beads add seasoning and pizazz! If you look closely the design morphs into a collage of hearts and ends with a long lacy romantic border/edging and beaded picot bind off.

Charts only. Percentage guidelines to make the most out of your precious lace yarn even though the instructions include two sizes.

Gauge is not extremely important in lace knitting, use your own judgment. Most experienced lace knitters have a favorite needle size for lace to get their desired density of fabric. Mine is US# 4(3.5mm) because I can’t get my little finger through the resulting yo stitches. Don’t like loosy goosy.

The design has patterning on both the RS and WS so I would consider it of Medium Difficulty.
