An Elegant Beaded Lace Stole Pattern
For this stole was created by taking a traditional lace pattern with strong diagonal lines and enhancing-and updating-the pattern by adding beads. The inspiration for this project was taken from women's fashion in the early 1900s. The beads are added quickly and easily using a crochet hook. Choose beads that blend in with your yarn for a subtle sparkle or select contrasting beads for higher visibility.
