Pattern Release: Selata Shawl

Last fall I designed a pattern for Webs called Selata Shawl in Charlemont... the pattern rights have reverted back to me... so of course I had to knit up a new version AND add beads to it, right?
Selata with Beads
Selata is worked from the top down, with increases placed so that a squared off bottom hem emerges. To this edge I added a lacy ruffle and to that an optional beaded lace bind off!  You can work Selata either in one color, or two as I have done.  The pattern is written in two sizes, and includes detailed yardage information for both versions.

For this version I went stash diving!  It turns out that I have an embarrassingly large number of single skeins of cashmere blend sock yarn in my studio...  who knew?  I easily found two that just HAD to be worked together... the darker purple color is Sweet Georgia Yarn Cash Lux Fine in Ultraviolet, and the coppery variegated color is String Theory Caper Sock in Oban.  I had a few other versions that might have worked as well, but this combination was the clear winner!
Selata
A great thing about knitting Selata Shawl? There is ALL that garter stitch with just a little lace at the end.... so if you are looking for a project that makes for easy knitting (and we know not all my patterns are like that!) this might fit the bill!

    1. Yes, purple and orange are across from each other on the color wheel and they do "sing" very well together! So glad you like it!
