Sinda is a small village in the Himalayas where, in my mind, the people there raise Cashmere Goats. (They might not but I like the name.) I also imagine the stars sparkle spectacularly there, like on my shawl:-)

Details: Both, the body of the shawl and the edging, are fairly simple and intuitive patterns. The body is made in one piece and both ends left live (With your provisional cast on for one end and scrap yarn or spare circulars for the other end) for the knit on edging. No center graft! The 15 stitch edging is grafted. (A 3 needle BO would do in a pinch.)

Beads: 4 packages of 8/0 Toho seed beads. (about 1350) These are placed on each stitch as knit. (Not strung) They can be left off if desired or placed just at the tips of the leaves. (2 packages. 750)

Colourmart cobweb yarn is held doubled: Colourmart.com will gladly double ply your cone for free…just ask them nice:-) Use single ply if using the handmaiden lace silk.

Skills: Knit on edging, lace, beading, grafting, double and triple joins. (I’ve included links to help in most of these areas and I am usually here in the AM if you have any questions.)

Pattern includes written and charted instruction, for both the body and edging of the shawl, and me.

Note: The links are just where I got my beads and yarn! You are not required to use these sources. They are just examples of what materials you might choose to use and where to find them. Feel free to substitute.
