This shawl (500 yds) and shawlette (250 yds) is a wide, shallow, self-edged triangle that is started in one corner. Simple shaping at the back neck makes it cling to the shoulders.

I created two types of stitches for the beaded edge (an edge increase rosepuff, and a beaded “picot”). Click on a link in the pattern to view a step by step video for them. Video also shows you how to get the triangle shape started in the bottom corner.

The beads, yarn, and row angle all contribute a luscious drape to this special gift worthy piece.

Skill Level: Advanced Intermediate
This pattern uses mostly regular crochet stitches (puffs and chains) to create a triangle. Starting it in one corner and using a custom stitch to steadily increase at the end of each row adds challenge. So does adding beads to give a picot-like finished edge as each row is completed. A video tutorial for the gauge swatch is now available here.

After using this pattern you will know (if you didn’t already):

  • How to crochet a striking lattice of rosette-like clusters of puff stitches.
  • How to crochet a wide, fancy lace shawl by starting at the bottom center point.
  • How to add a curved top edge to a triangular wrap so that it clings to the shoulders.
  • How to create a finished edge as you complete each row.
  • How to add beads to enhance a shawl’s drape and decorative edge.

Other Supplies Needed
Beads: 410 size 6/0 Miyuki (4 mm) seed beads for one-ball shawlette version (pictured). For two-ball shawl: 570 beads. (You’ll have a few left over.)
Notions: Needle for stringing beads onto yarn (I prefer to make my own or use a dental floss threader). Two stitch markers. Scissors. Yarn needle.
