There is nothing simple about this elaborate beaded shawl, a variation on the basic top down triangle. A flame-like, textured center panel makes all the difference. The shawl begins with only a few cast on stitches at the top and increases quickly with additional back neck shaping. After the wavy diagonals on the sides morph into textured diamonds, the shawl finishes with a beautiful beaded edge.
