Budding Shawlette

When I first saw this motif, it reminded me of a little bud, just making its way out of the leaves, almost like how I was poking my head out into my own designs.  Thus, I named the pattern “Budding Shawlette.”  The pattern has a little of everything, making it just right for trying out new techniques, from learning how to make a top down shawl, to adding beads to a shawl.

    I am knitting another one. I loved the meduim bead one so much. I am using the chart for the complex beading and I wanted to mention an error. Your charts are so awesome and spot on, I thought you’d want to know. On Chart 2 the complex version, row #4 looks like a box was highlighted yellow to add a bead on the WS row. It’s not a huge issue since your written instructions say to K2 purl across and K2 for WS so I knew it was just an oopsie. I love your work. Thank you again for sharing it. The person I gave my last one too what beyond thrilled.
