This shawl can be made in lace weight yarn for the larger version, sock weight yarn is used for the smaller version.
I give the option of two versions for the edging-
The Leaf Edging version features leaves, of course. How can a celebration shawl designed in honor of my 50th birthday have anything else? It shows my love of Autumn.
The Diamond Edging version features diamonds. This one uses more beads and who can resist adding a few extra beads.
Both shawls are knit the same until you come to the edging. Both have charts and written instructions.
Celebrate with me and enjoy knitting them both.
