This shawl design is knit bottom up and ends with my own design, named Leedra’s Edge and Bind Off. If you have never knit one of my shawl patterns using this bind off you are in for a treat.

Beads are optional and the pattern is written so that it can easily be knit without using beads. There are two distinct areas with beads so if you want to knit with less beads you can decide whether you want beads around the bottom, or at the front sides of the shawl.

This pattern was originally released as a MKAL in September 2015. All of the clues have now been released. At this time the pattern is downloaded as one file.
