Notes

Finished size: 64” across x 30” long.

Used 1132 size 6 opaque black round Japanese seed beads.

146 rows / 462 stitches PLUS knitted-on edging, which was 910 rows.

I was a test knitter for this pattern that had many different options. I decided to do the large with the center panel and the knitted-on edging. This is another of Tiziana’s patterns that doesn’t give you a chance to get bored! It’s loaded with interesting stitches and patterns. But as usual, Tiziana’s instructions are perfect. She defines every stitch in the pattern and her included charts & written directions make it easy for any knitter to follow. And if you’re into beads, this is a bead-heavy shawl. Of course, you can adjust the beads to your own personal preference where you want. When I finished with this one, I wanted to make a slightly smaller one without the center panel and with the alternate edging, so I made Jonium.
