Belle Nuit...Falling stars

Belle Nuit, or Beautiful Night, portrays an explosion of falling stars over a night sky. Make your wishes known as you knit this shawl that is worked from the top down featuring one of my favorite constructions: center panel with additional shoulder shaping. The side lace panels are outlined with a subtle cable or twisted stitch pattern, depending on how you choose to work the stitch, and you may choose to end the shawl with a delightful optional beaded picot bind off.

Shawl is worked from the top down, starting at center back neck. Beads are placed using the crochet hook add-as-you-go method. Lace patterns are written and charted. Instructions are given for two sizes, scarf and shawl.
