Accola

Accola is a semicircular shawl that incorporates nupps, placing beads, and double-sided beaded lace. Accola is worked from the bottom up, starting with a long narrow lace border that has stitches picked up along the top edge of it.  The shawl body consists of two triangles separated by a center panel that incorporates double sided beaded lace to create a stunning central focal point. The shawl is written for two weights of yarn and two sizes.  Originally designed for my Craftsy class Knitting with Beads, I can now make the pattern available through my site as well!
