The Celta shawl has a simple presence with a bit of elegance to wear out on those cool nights. The design starts with a scalloped lace border at the bottom and optional placed beads. Stitches are then picked up across the long border, and the body of the shawl is worked by using decreases to achieve the triangular shape with optional strung and placed beads for the center panel. The top edge is knit by picking up stitches across the top edge, and a lace border with optional placed beads is worked by binding off the top edge as it is worked, to create a polished finish.
