Beaded Triangular Shawl

This deep purple shawl is made of a triangular granny square, a simple design, but made so much better with the addition of shiny purple beads. 

I used one skein of Loops & Threads Woolike in Purple with an F hook. 
Ch 5, join with sl st to form ring
Row 1: ch 4 (counts as dc, ch1), (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc, ch 1, dc) in ring
Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc, ch 1), turn, *3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1; rep from * to end to center ch 1 sp, (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) in center ch 1 sp, ch 1, *3 dc in ch 1 sp, ch 1; rep from * to end to last ch 1 sp, 3 dc in last ch 1 sp, ch 1, dc in 3rd ch of beg ch 4
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. 
Repeat for the other two corners. 
All finished!
My finished shawl is 24" deep and 54" across the top. 
Enjoy this pattern!
Xoxo, Alyssa

  2. My sister was going to teach me when she visited last year - but we never got around to it. We were too busy knitting and shopping for yarn - LOL! There are times when a knitted item calls for a crocheted border - so it would come in handy to know HOW!

  4. Thank you for your reply. This is a cute shawl and I keep trying to start it but now I am stuck on Row 2. Can you explain it little clearer because there are a lot of * and rep* and I am confused. Please help, again.
    Excited to start, db

    1. For row 2, ch 4 turn, 3dc in ch 1 sp, (ch 1, 3dc, ch1, 3dc) in center space, ch 1, 3 doc in ch 1 so, ch 1, dc in same space. Basically, it's just 3 dc in every ch 1 sp, with a ch1 between every 3dc cluster. The ends have an extra dc, either a ch 4 or a ch 1, dc. The center always has (3dc, ch1, 3dc) with ch 1 spots on either side. Hope that helps clarify!
