Notes

Modifications
I only did four repeats of Chart B instead of six because it was becoming way too huge (relatively speaking). I added beads on the k2tog and ssk stitches of the hanging wisteria, and on the K st or dec sts just inside the yarn overs on the edge wisteria. I also made the motifs start along the increase edges earlier instead of waiting until an entire motif could be worked. For the second half of the edging, I started at the opposite corner and worked the lace pattern on the purl side so that it is mirrored at the tip rather than flowing the same direction all the way around the shawl.

I added a bleeding heart motif in each triangle corner along the edge since those are romantic flowers and I have fond memories of them from up north.
