The name of this crescent shaped and lacy shawl comes from the music written in 1874 by the French composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Danse Macabre immediately lets your imagination wander to dancing skeletons in graveyards; what better yarn to pair it with than Dye for Yarn Tussah Silk Lace, many perfectly named for such a shawl!

This pattern includes charts and full written instructions with bead placement shown clearly in both sets of directions. You will find it useful to print your pattern on a colour printer though should you not have one you could always use a coloured pencil to mark your beaded stitches.
