Notes

I thought something simple would show off the color changes best. Worked with the boneyard shawl pattern, modded at the end to add beads and a picot castoff. Used up just about every last scrap of the yarn too!

Photo of grey yarn w beads is a test swatch to check how to add beads as I’ve never done it before. Set nearest needles is a YO/K2tog with bead added on K2tog. Set farthest from needles is prestrung on yarn, added onto YO of the YO/K2tog. Going with the one nearest the needles - hooray for floss threaders!

Photo on table is after casting off and before washing/blocking, as is the one below it of the edge.
