Lace shawl with beads and nupps
Pattern contains charts and a little bit of written explanation, but it doesn’t cover the same part of the shawl. So you need to be able to read charts.
Also available as part of an eBook collection at a very favourable price! If you want to make more than one of the shawls, go for the eBook.
