Ruby Jewels is a crescent shaped lace shawlette knitted in fingering weight yarn. It is knitted from the top down with all increases at the sides. There is no central spine, but instead the central motif is flanked by a lace pattern which radiates outwards. The applied, beaded, edging means no long bindoff! This shawlette is recommended for intermediate knitters.

Pattern is written out and charted.

Ruby Jewels Shawlette is the second of a set of three shawls, each in elegant lace pattern, and each in a different shape. Inspired by the ballets choreographed by George Balanchine, the shawls are named after jewels: Diamonds, Rubies, and Emeralds.

The first in the series, Diamond Jewels Shawlette, was originally published in Yarnwise Magazine (June 2013).

Note that this pattern uses approximately 250 E, 5/0, or 6/0 beads. Purchase extra in case any beads are irregular or damaged.

The final photo on this page is a little tutorial that I made when one knitter had some questions about the edging. It is also included on the last page of the pattern - edited May 22, 2014. This same version corrected a typo on row 30 of the pattern.
