A lacy, lightweight wrap that’s perfect for chilly spring or summer evenings. Beads in the bows add just a touch of sparkle and additional beads in the final row help weight the shawl and keep it in place.

This rectangular wrap works up quickly using DK weight yarn and a large hook. It would also look great using a lace-weight mohair yarn and a “K” (6.5 mm) hook.


  • Filatura Di Crosa “Multicolor”, or similar mohair yarn, 2 skeins (100 grms; 396 yards/362.1 m)
  • 9.00 mm (“N”) crochet hook
  • #10 steel crochet hook
  • Size 6 beads

Note: instructions on how to add beads ‘as you go’ are included in the pattern.
