I have been in love with the center-out structure of knitting for a long time. It gives me great pleasure to merge the center-start with the crescent form. In addition, this design features other interesting structural and textural details, such as garter stitch as a counterpoint to beaded lace, one of my favorite combinations.
Levana begins with a center-start square panel, from which wings emerge at right and left. The top and bottom of the center square, along with the tops of the side panels, are finished with a tiny, sweet beaded picot edging. On the bottom edges of the side panels, framing the beaded lace section, is a small, openwork lace pattern that I know you will love because of its easy, intuitive nature; every time you encounter this edge, whether it is on a right side or a wrong side row, it is always worked in the same way: k2, yo, k2tog.
Bead requirements: 396 size 4 mm cubes or 6/0 round seed beads.
