Beaded lace and garter stitch combine beautifully in this hooded shawl which is cast on in the traditional manner at bottom edge and is worked up to the top of the hood where a single seam joins it all together. Shoulder shaping produces an excellent fit, and the garter stitch border provides a lovely resting space for a shawl pin at the neck overlap. This pattern is both written out and charted. Beads are added with the crochet hook add-as-you-go method.
