Sivia Harding's Ophidian is a top-down
triangle shawlette that accommodates any gauge yarn up to dk weight (and
probably heavier). Simple garter stitch makes a graceful transition to the
textured lace pattern, ending in a lovely openwork border with subtle scallops.
The number of repeats may be modified as you like to make a
smaller or bigger garment, and the open lace and bead border brings it all home.
Beads are placed throughout with the add-as-you-go crochet hook method. Lace
patterns are shown in chart form only.
