Crochet beaded shawl

It’s time for another crochet pattern and this week, we’re upping the ante with the pretty beaded single-skein Draco Shawl. The unusual shape of this shawl gives it an interesting look when styled, and would be a great introduction to beading.

Yarn-wise, you could use most bases for this shawl, with alpaca and silk blends affording more drape to the finished object. Semi-solid or solids would be best in terms of dye effect, to avoid overwhelming the beading; you could consider doing the shawl in a most busy colour way and omitting the beads.

What would you crochet this in?
