This lovely cowl is offered in three weights, with or without beads. I chose the beading colors on the DK version to evoke the colors of the Pinyon Jay.

Laceweight is shown without beads. To include beads, simply place beads as shown in the Fingering and DK Weight chart.

I love this feathery lace stitch pattern, and explore it further in the forthcoming LACE 2.
