Worked from the top down, with crescent shaping, the Stellanti shawl from Nelkin Designs works perfectly with hand dyed ombre yarns like Nightfall by Fibro Fibers which has a gradient that spans the entire length of the skein. Work your shawl from the outside of the ball from light to dark. When choosing beads, you can work with two colors of beads throughout (Option A), one color of bead (Option B), beads only on the bottom edge lace ribbing (Option C), or no beads at all.
