Renate’s Shawl is designed for a very special friend who appreciates the tradition and beauty of knit shawls and, most importantly, wears them with flair!
Renate’s Shawl is the first in a series of beaded heirloom shawls. She is a haapsalu style triangular shawl using estonian stitches and knit from the bottom up, starting with the edging. My interpretation of “update” is to use bright colors and beads in place of the traditional nupps. However, nupps can always be substituted but you’ll need to add 25% more yarn to the requirements!
You can use cobweb, single ply, 2-ply or a heavier lace such as Wollmeise Lace-Garn. Instructions are provided to accommodate the differences.

Written instructions for row 9 are correct.
Handy tip by one of our testers:
Move the markers on Row 27 1 stitch to the right to help keep track of the 3into3 stitches on row 29.
