This is a beautiful crescent shawl with lots of lace and adorned with glass beads. If you don't like picking up and knitting stitches, this is the shawl for you. Begin with lace bottom knitting vertically while creating stitches for the body of the shawl as you go. This is a fun technique. It takes the guess work out of where to pick up stitches and also adds a lovely design element. Check out the video link included in pattern.
