This shawl and cuff set were initially designed for the 2017 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, and is now available to all!

In Morroco, a Jali screen is a perforated stone or latticed screen that is highly decorated in ornamental patterns. I’ve taken that concept and applied it to this shawl and cuff set. The center of the shawl has an elaborate beaded feather and fan stitch. This center radiates out to each wing with a super simple eyelet stitch.

Start with the cuff, which will teach you how to work integrated i-cord edges and the beaded stitch used in the shawl. Once you have the concept down, it is time to cast on for your shawl!

The pattern includes video tutorials which teach you all the tricksy bits

Approx. 25 grams Size 6/0 glass seed beads
Super floss, .75-1mm steel crochet hook, or a Beadle Needle (for placing beads)
