Fox and The Grapes Mystery KAL

Fox and The Grapes is a triangular shaped shawl worked from the bottom up. The pattern is worked on the both wrong and right sides, but it is easy enough to memorize and knit. I named it Fox and The Grapes because I can see foxes and grapes in the pattern. Can you see them?
Pattern includes charts and written directions. If you would like to add beads to your shawl, instructions are included as to where to place the beads.

Suggested yarn and yardage needed:
Any sock yarn (see table for yardage needed).
I used Rendezvous Silky Sensation 50% Merino wool/50% Silk.
For 8 repeats size sample I used Sofia colorway 1 skein (100g, 400 yards).
For 12 repeats size sample I used Wine Burgundy colorway 2 skeins (200 g, 400 yards).

Finished Sizes (in blocking board):
8 Repeats: 110 cm (43.3") across top edge, 60 cm (23.6") depth.

Needle: At least 24" long circular needles size 3.5 mm (US 4) and 4.5 mm (US 7).

Notions: Stitch markers, crochet hook for beading (optional), size 6/0 beads (optional), and crochet hook size 3.5 mm for CO (optional).
