This pattern has two versions, a rectangular stole and a crescent shawl. The stole is worked in one piece from beginning to end. The shawl begins with lace edging, which is worked sideways. Then stitches are picked up along one side of the edging and is worked to the top, using short-row shaping to create the crescent shape. The lace pattern for the stole includes both nupps and beads; the lace pattern for the shawl includes beads. Both beads and nupps may be replaced with a single stockinette stitch if preferred. The lace patterns are presented in chart form only.
