The Deathly Hallows are three magical objects that, according to legend, taken together grant the holder mastery over death. The Hallows are made up of the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone, and the Cloak of Invisibility. They are represented by a triangular symbol, first seen as a necklace worn by Xenophilius Lovegood in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. The graphics department on the film, led by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, was responsible for developing the art for that symbol, as well as every other crest, sigil, logo, and insignia shown in the films.

A repeating pattern of Deathly Hallows symbols forms the heart of this beautiful beaded shawl. Beginning with a center provisional cast on, the shawl is worked in two halves down to the ends to create a mirror image of the pattern. The Deathly Hallows triangular symbol is formed using increases and decreases in the lace motif. Beading as you go creates the circle at the center and adds sparkle (1,000 6/0 4.00 mm silver-lined crystal beads), making this the perfect accessory for any magical event.
