Aphrodite...Mythical lace

This top-down beaded lace shawlette has all the makings of a mythical knit. Three equal panels of beaded floral lace are separated by “seams” in a cabled arrow lace pattern. A third pattern creates the all-around wavy edge. The resulting shape is a graceful three sides of a square.

Beads are placed with the crochet hook method.  Lace patterns are presented in chart form only. Suitable for intermediate knitters, best with some lace knitting experience.
