Gold. Silver. Bronze. Pewter. Shining metals that attract and adorn us. Add some sparkling beads and the shimmer is unquestionable. In this sideways knit shawl that uses wraps and turns to gently curve, beads are combined with Teresa’s rich colors to give the appearance of molten metal.

A slightly different techinique has been used for the beads where a loop of working yarn is adorned with several beads and then looped back into the working stitches to make a dangle on the end of the triangles.

This pattern is meant for adventurous novice knitters to experienced knitters and all those in-between. Please read the entire pattern before beginning.
