This entire shawl uses just 2 hanks and is knit on US 8s.
Starting with the lacy beaded border (beads are optional of course, but really - awesome yarn, lace AND sparkly beads? Yes, please!), the long edge is picked up and worked back and forth in German Short Rows. My favorite type of short rows, I find this particular method to be more elegant and smooth than the usual wrap and turn.
