This cleverly constructed beaded shawl goes with everything from jeans to an evening gown. Made of Sea Silk yarn (part silk, part seaweed), it has an elegant drape and sheen. If you’ve never tried beaded knitting before, you’ll quickly become addicted.

Wendy Johnson’s version on wendyknits.net includes her additional chart for the center section.
On Rows 9, 11, 13, and 15, the decreases of the middle of the panel can be mirrored if the knitter so desires. This section of the rows would then read, “k2, k2tog, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, ssk, k2”, instead of “k2, ssk, k1, yo, k1, yo, k1, ssk, k2” as written.
Delete Row 17, and renumber Rows 19-41 as Rows 17-39. The correct stitch count for these rows should be 51 stitches, not 53 as stated.
In addition, two of the charts in the book contain mistakes. The Arrow Lace Chart should have the sl1-k2tog-psso on Row 5 but the symbol appears on Row 6. The Chart Key is missing the symbol for k3tog.
