A beautiful budding pattern, sparkling beads and dangling raindrops combine to create a celebration of springtime and blossoms.

The point of the shawl has been gently curved with the addition of short-rows. The edging is a simple crochet chain embellished with beads.

The bulk of the beads have been place with a crochet hook. The exception is the edging. Here the beads were pre-strung before the edging was begun.
