Rep row 2 until shawl is desired size. Fasten off and weave in all ends.
You will also need some coordinating beads, a needle, and matching thread.
Cut a length of thread and knot the end. Pull through one of the corners to secure it, and then thread about 4" of beads. Thread the needle back up through all the beads except the one at the end, so that it doesn't come undone. Make a stitch through the scarf to tighten it.
Make two more strands of beads in this same manner. Fasten off the thread, making sure to knot it and hide it within the yarn.
Enjoy this pattern!
