White Queen Stole Knitting Pattern Download
The body of the wrap is a fairly simple geometric lace, which begins as nearly solid fabric in the center and becomes more open toward the borders as sparkly beads trickle in like ice shimmering in sunlight. The bottom edges feature more elaborate lace and numerous beads. The shawl is worked seamlessly from a provisional cast-on to both ends, which allows its size to be easily customized.
