This is a beautiful beaded shawl, the finished shape of which is less than a full circle though more than a semi-circle. It is knit from the neck down, using either a heavy lace weight or a light fingering weight yarn and uses a simple crochet bind-off.
The original yarn used by the designer, Anne-Lise Maigaard, was 100g Zitron Filisilk (70% merino, 30% silk) 656 yards (600m)/100g. However, we have successfully seen it knit to a beautiful result in light fingering weight as well as other lace weight yarns. Figure yardage in that general range and you should be fine.
