Inspired by the traditional Frost Flowers lace pattern, this crescent shawl is a perfect accessory for breezy summer dresses. The sprinkling of beads mimics dewdrops on flowers on an early summer morning. The beads along the bind off edge add extra interest and sparkle as well as help prevent rolling of the top edge (total 276 8/0 3.1mm seed beads).

This wrap is knitted in one piece starting at the bottom edge of the lace followed by few decreases and easy short rows (no wraps), which form the curved crescent shape.

Note about the yardage requirement - I used just under 500 yards from the 875 yard skein for the sample shawlette.
