Ophidian is a top-down triangle shawlette that accommodates any gauge yarn up to dk weight (and probably heavier).

Simple garter stitch makes a graceful transition to the textured lace pattern, ending in a lovely openwork border with subtle scallops.

The number of pattern repeats may be modified as you like to make a smaller or bigger garment, and the open lace and bead border brings it all home.

Beads are placed throughout with the add-as-you-go crochet hook method. Lace patterns are shown in chart form only.

Bead requirements: 240 (178) size 6/0 seed beads or 4 mm megatama beads for fingering weight (dk weight) versions.
