This listing is a pdf file to knit this shawl adding beads as you go along. It comes in two sizes with written instructions and charts for both.

Bead lightning! Lightning in which the intensity appears to vary along the path and which resembles a string of beads! The pattern appears as panels of vertical and horizontal bolts of lightning when it is worn.
Great for a beginner to become familiar with working with lace and beads and an advanced knitter who likes elegance and the drape that beads lend.
There are two main methods to add beads and you can use whichever method works best for you. String beads onto yarn before you start knitting or use a crochet hook to hook beads onto stitches as you go.

Seed beads size 6.
564 beads to be exact for the 60” x 18” sized shawl
668 beads to be exact for the 70” x 18” sized shawl
