Norwegian Woods Scarf or Shawl
This top-down lace triangle portrays a forest progressing from winter into spring. Beads grace the bottom edge. Bead requirements: Scarf size requires 179 beads; shawl, 251. For the samples, I used Toho 3x3 mm cubes available from Earth Faire.
This pattern can be upsized by doing more repeats of one or more of the three lace patterns used in the shawl. Note that more yarn and beads will be required if the pattern is made larger.
Sept 2008: Note added under Chart A reminding knitters to work two plain RS rows before going on to Chart B.
