Selata is worked from the top down, with increases placed so that a squared off bottom hem emerges. To this edge I added a lacy ruffle and to that an optional beaded lace bind off! You can work Selata either in one color, or two as I have done. The pattern is written in two sizes, and includes detailed yardage information for both versions.

A great thing about knitting Selata Shawl? There is ALL that garter stitch with just a little lace at the end…. so if you are looking for a project that makes for easy knitting (and we know not all my patterns are like that!) this might fit the bill!
