Selata is worked from the top down, with increases placed so that a squared off bottom hem emerges. To this edge I added a lacy ruffle and to that an optional beaded lace bind off!  You can work Selata either in one color, or two as I have done.  The pattern is written in two sizes, and includes detailed yardage information for both versions.
