Ravelry: Venomous Tentacula pattern by Jennifer Dassau

This garter stitch shawl is knit sideways and features an unusual tentacular edging of openwork, and optional beads. Venomous recalls Harry Potter’s Venomous Tentacula, a green, spikey plant with mobile vines that grab living prey, aggressive shoots that expel venom, and a poisonous bite. The sideways edging is made by repeatedly binding off and casting on stitches, creating a pattern of holes. Any yarn and any amount may be used; see Designer’s Notes to ensure a symmetrical shawl and to prevent running out of yarn.
