Inspired by lush green leaves shimmering with droplets of morning dew, Little Leaves shawlette with its smaller size will make a great addition to any wardrobe. The design includes beads for extra textural detail (210 8/0 3.00 mm beads), but the lace will look great even if left unadorned.

This wrap is knitted in one piece starting at the outside edge of the lace section followed by easy short rows (no wraps), which give the shawlette its unique crescent form. The elongated narrow shape offers numerous ways of tying and draping without the need for a shawl pin.

This project is not difficult even for the beginner lace knitter since the stitch pattern is very simple to knit and easy to memorize. The reverse rows are purled and the addition of beads is optional. Any lace or fingering weight yarn will work for this project, the original was completed with approximately 370 yards of Malabrigo Lace, color VAA.
