Beads: 224 size 6/0 seed beads; you will also need a dental floss threader or bead needle to string the beads onto the yarn before you start knitting.

This crescent-shaped shawlette begins with working the beaded lace edging sideways. All beads are pre-strung before knitting begins – no loose beads or tiny crochet hooks! The short-row body is worked from picked-up stitches. More lace finishes the top border of the shawlette, echoing the motifs from the bottom edging.

Mezair is part of the Airs Above the Ground Collection. Each of four shawlettes in the collection can be made with a single skein of fingering-weight yarn. Look for “Capriole” (top-down, semi-circular, lace), “Courbette” (sideways, modular, crescent-shaped, lace), and “Levade” (bottom-up, heart-shaped, lace).
