This flirty wrap features an unusual construction method; the “edging” is actually knit first. Eleven picot-edged half-circles are knit separately in stockinette stitch, then stitches are picked up to join them and begin the garter stitch “base” of the shawlette. The motifs are knit in a yarn the same color as the base but with tiny glass beads for a subtle sparkle.
