Optional beads are knit into the drop border. Sewn on “rain drops” can also be added with helpful photo tutorials.

OR knit in the front of 2nd st on ln, knit 1st st, pull both sts off ln

Advanced Beginner difficulty. Easy purled rows on the WS of the shawl make for a rather quick knit. You can finish with one or two border repeats. For example: You can add an additional drop border to the small or knit one border of the large for a medium size.
