The MKAL was run in Ravelry's Gorgeous Gradients Group in early 2019.
Difficulty: Medium to advanced. Charted RS rows only, WS rows are purled except for edge sts and double yo’ers. Charts only/
Yarn: You can use practically any blockable light fingering (or heavy lace weight) yarn. 656 - 766 yards (600-700 m).
Size: Approximately 23 inches (58 cm) deep and 52 inches (132 cm) wing span. As written, the pattern can be ended between row 132 and 142, so final size will depend on where you decide to end, your yarn weight and needle size.
Needles and hooks: Size US 4 (3.5 mm) circular needle or the size you need to get a fabric you like. Cable needle.
Beads: There are several possibilities for adding beads if you wish. Some suggestions will be offered, one adding 1300 beads, the other 882 (or both, making 2182 for the die hards!) Less is also possible.
Construction: The shawl is worked from the neck down and bound off using either a knitted picot bind off or a crochet picot bind off.
