Nelkin Designs Extendo Shawl PDF
The Extendo Shawl from Nelkin Designs has a bottom up construction. First, the edging is worked in two halves and grafted in the center; and then the body stitches are picked up and worked with decreases at the edges and the center seam so that the shawl seamlessly tapers to the top as you work the Extendo Stitch. This pattern includes instructions for using beads, which will add both weight and texture to the woven-like fabric of this eye-catching shawl.
