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 public video tutorial for the gauge swatch is available here.

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

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