Sivia Harding's Oaken Dreams shawl is worked
from side to side. The beaded lace border is 32 rows long and is repeated
throughout the shawl, as is the beaded textured pattern at the top edge (which
reminds me of a string of acorns). The crescent shaping occurs within the center
garter stitch section, which grows from one stitch to 25 stitches, then back
again to one stitch.
Beads are placed using the crochet hook add-as-you-go
method. Bead requirements: 370 size 6/0 seed beads.
Yarn: 420 yards Fingering. Shown in Sunshine Yarns Single Ply Merino Fine
Needles: US 5 (3.75mm)
Gauge: 21 stitches and 24 rows = 4" in garter stitch
